We arrived at the train station in Budapest and struggled with the currency, which we wound up calling kumquats. We took a cab to our hotel, the Gellert. Steve and Shirley wound up in The Nixon room, which produced peals of laughter.
We took a boat ride on the Danube the first night and it was a good orientation.
The next day we walked and funicular-ed up to Palace Hill.
We watched some of the filming of Spielberg's film Munich.
Of course we enjoyed many a meal.
And we did lots of sightseeing.
And examined lots of architectural details.
All too soon it was time to rent a car and leave Budapest.
