2 consequitive 3 hour nights wasn't a good start to my weekend in Budapest, but I did have a great time there. Its good going back to a place a second time, I seem to see more and be more relaxed as its a bit familiar at least. I loved spending time with Rachel. We tried out the Gellert baths in a very old hotel, very beautiful. The best part was sitting by the Danube, watching the sun set over the hill and castle and church spires. Then as the night set in, lights came on and turned the place into a fairyland. There were musicians playing in the restaurant, and the Hungarian food was good. It was a lovely warm evening for April. Loved the perfum of all the blooming flowers, especially the abundance of lilacs. Lilacs in every color and everywhere, all along the rail way tracks, hedges between fields, front yards. Even people selling them....from God's garden....that means they stole them!!
Back in London now....have bot bikes and took the boys for a bike ride along the tow path of the Thames river. lovely.
