Visit to Hungary (04-13/09/2007)

Day 3, Budapest

On Friday we went to visit my cousin Zsuzsi in Budapest, who, together with her children Zalán and Patri, as well as her partner Mihály, were expecting us. Zsuzsi and Patri had prepared a nice lunch for us.

In the afternoon Mihály took us to Budapest to do some shopping. Ann bought some books and I some CDs of Hungarian folk music. Afterwards Mihály took us to the Buda Castle, which I had seen only from the outside before. There was a very interesting exhibition of old statues recently excavated from a ‘statue cemetery’.

Mihály had invited us all for dinner at the Silver Carp restaurant in Buda. Unfortunately, because of other engagements, Zalán could not come with us. The meal and company were excellent.
