Budapest - Day 1August 18 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

We got some Lángos. Alex has a photo of them! They are like big flat churros with stuff on top... of your choice. Alex had the veggie option, Elena and I had meat 🥩
Next we went to the National Gallery and saw some Hungarian art, followed by a stroll down the hill and over the Chain Bridge, which was pedestrianised because there was a music festival on there today, which we stopped to look at.
