Not in Budapest yet

by

It’s hot and humid again. And getting to the next place always takes as much time as you have. We are on Szentendrei-sziget, an island in the Duna (Danube), waiting for the ferry to take us across. It takes only people, no cars, and runs hourly. The plan was to arrive in Budapest by lunchtime but now it’s 2pm and we have probably an hour of riding to go. Once we get to the other side.  Before leaving Esztergom this morning we visited the Basilica, the largest church in Hungary. We could see it for miles as we approached the city yesterday. It is built on a hill and has a huge dome. Remains of Roman walls are there too. Inside it is impressive with  beautiful decoration and some interesting relics. Outside lots of swallows were flying around – it’s a good nesting spot. The Duna was hazy and misty, bike path not too bad and quite well signposted. We have seen a few other cyclists.
