Shoes on the shores of the Danube
Budapest--I made it here right on time with no travel probs. Bob met me at the airport with bus/metro tickets and we headed into the city and found our hostel. He came down from Berlin for the weekend to meet up and check out the city. First impressions--quite modern and clean (seems to have shaked off any communist feel...except for the metro which was like a 50 year old tin can barrelling down a dark tunnel), not too bustling and pleasantly relaxing, beautiful setting along the river, impossible to find toilets, and super easy to navigate.
