We have arrived in Budapest! well actually we arrived yesterday after a somewhat confusing 1ó hr train from Brasov.
We are staying at a crazy hippie hostel that has camping outside, hammocks and outdoor loinging beds, where the staff make communal goulash and live at the hostel. im sure theres something like it off of commercial drive. Budapest is a very large city but we have managed to literally walk half of it (both the Buda and the Pest side). one thing that is apparent with hungarian architecture and sculptures is the scale to which they have been created, meaning everything is very grandiose and a bit gruesome - sculptures depict violent war scenes or very evil looking old men stealing babies, etc.
today we are heading off to spend some time in the thermal public baths that are scattered across the City, then are planning to go to an old soviet building that has been made into a cool outside bar. tomorrow we are taking a 3hr train to vienna to stay a night or two then heading off to Slovenia to go see Bled, a beautiful town in the Alps.
other than the fact that i left my camera in Brasov, and am desperately trying to figure out some way to get it back before we have to head home, things are good.
also we are extremely jealous of the nice weather u are experiencing back in Vancouver, and are desperately hoping croatia will give us good weather!
