Where I stayed
I was excited about tonight as we were doing a one hour evening cruise down the Danube as an optional excursion. We were to see the illumination of the Castle District, House of Parliament, Gellert Hill, the Chain Bridge and around Margaret Island. There were also 2 drinks included! We arrived and had to wait around for our boat to arrive. Our guide pointed out a TRABANT car which is also referred to as a "cardboard car"
Around 9pm, we boarded and Suzi & I sat on the outside deck with Mick and Kerry from Australia and Analishka. (sp.?) My first drink was champagne then a beer. Budapest was lovely at night with everything lit up. Our guide was right about the Chain Bridge looking like a "pearl necklace". with the white lights and was such a pretty sight! Parliament was really impressive with it's Gothic style and dome. I took 20 pictures of this building (evening and day) alone. Besides the dinners, the cruise was one of my favorite excursions we did and I couldn't wait to see more of Budapest tomorrow!
