19 years ago today michelle and i moved in together, now here we are in budapest. it's an unbelievably good feeling. "honey, what would you like to do today?" "i'd like to float in some warm, thermal spring-fed pool nestled at the foot of a neo-baroque building." "well, then, that you shall do."
budapest has not disappointed one bit. first day included celebrations for the hungarian national holiday and within nine hours we saw an air show over the danube, witnessed the procession of the thousand year old, mummified hand of saint stephen (so they say), ate lamb knuckle with goulasch soup and watched fireworks over the river with millions of budapesters. EVERYONE was out and we were in the thick of it.
rudas baths." sure, here's a photo but it barely conveys the mystique. after weeks of walking around old european cities, this was quite welcomed. in spite of the grumpy cashier.
today, great market hall, a float up the danube and a visit to szechenyi baths up in city park. then hungarian food and cheap beer and wine. what a great way to spend an anniversary.
hi everyone! thanks for being our family and friends.
