In Budapest now


The aforementioned ferry ride was followed by a stop for lunch and that was followed by a thunderstorm and heavy rain that lasted more than half an hour. We then had 20km to go along bad bike path that included muddy sections through overgrown forest with large puddles and then industrial outskirts.

Entering Budapest

Finally we were approaching the city with the extraordinary parliament buildings in view. It was quite an experience riding to our destination (on the Pest side) as we had to enter the traffic stream and got swept around a roundabout, then over the Chain Bridge in the traffic lane. Sadly photography from the saddle was out of the question. We went past the Dohany Street Synagogue, a striking building that I did not know of but identified later. We are staying in a YH that is a bit frenetic and has No Internet Access. 0 Ukuleles. Is that too harsh?
