Today I took a walking tour that explained about the Jewish history of the city.  They really got the raw end of the deal.  They were forced to live outside the old city walls, but now all their old buildings are hip new bars.  The guide was really good and he could tell stories that related Hungary to all the nationalities of the groups; Tawain, Austrailia, USA, UK, etc.  There are multiple clocks on the Jewish Synagouge (2nd biggest in World behind one in NYC) to confuse the Devil so he can't get you.  Supposidly Hungarians created Fox and another big hollywood company.  They have a statue dedicated to a Lutheren Priest who saved 2000 Jewish kids during WW2. 

I then went to the local market for fresh beef goulash (yum) and then I climbed the basilica for some sweet views.  My favorite things I think are walking tours and climbing the highest things in the city.  I love the history of it all.  I also went to the same cafe today as yesterday.  I like the guy who plays the piano, he's good.  Maybe he has six fingers on each hand.

Vienna tomorrow.
