St Mattias and feet eating fishNovember 14 in Hungary
Today we walked around Buda, the other side of the Danube. Across the iconic chain bridge, conned into a “4 kilo meter” ride up the hill - it was only a few hundred meters and would have been an easy walk - but hey, everyone needs to make a quid.
St Matthias church which is fabulous - an interesting mix of east and west - great views from the fisherman’s walls, delicious lunch of langos (fried hot bread with toppings of sour cream, cheese, sausage and vegetables), then the palace and remains of the castle. Down the hill and across to Pest, where I had promised myself a fish pedicure. Loved it! Not long enough. An evening at the Operetta, in a box, with bubbly and snacks at interval. Goulash soup for supper, followed by a hot mulled wine (courtesy of our hotel) then bed.
Altogether a great day.Read more
