Where I stayed
In Hungary we continue to enjoy the architecture of castles, churches and (thanks to the Turkish influence) Citadels. Of course, Budapest outshines them all, but my favorite was a few days out of Budapest. We came around a corner and boom, there was the Esztergomi Bazilika, lovely in the sun, sitting on the hillhttp://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esztergomi_bazilika
We did a whirlwind tour of Budapest, feeling much more like taking photos. (actually, Matt does almost all the photos, I just take pictures of him when I think of it). Budapest is far too large for one day, but we wanted to keep moving feeling like we just did a big city in Vienna. We enjoyed walking around the Parliament and Castle Hill. We even stumbled on a vegetarian restaurant which served Tofu, whooie!
Three more days of peddling took us across the eastern plains of Hungary, truly the breadbasket of the country. Now it's onto Romania towards Bucharest, via Transylvania. Hmm... Romania looks a lot bigger then Hungary....
