What we did in Budapest Part 1

We crossed the Szechenyi Bridge, or Chain Bridge, to Buda


We climbed Castle Hill (or rather, took a bus up) and bought handmade Hungarian crafts. Then we took lots of pictures of the view across the Danube to Pest and the Parliament building.


We went to Fisherman's Bastion, a neo-Romanesque faux-castle like structure on the hill overlooking the Danube



Where we took lots of photos of ourselves and the Bastion and the view



We visited the St Matyas (Matthias) Church

We stopped at a cafe and had a lovely late lunch (pics on Leesa's blog), and continued to walk around the adorable streets of the Castle Hill


We looked into other people's backyards


We strolled down tree-shaded lanes lined with gorgeous homes


We took pictures until our camera batteries ran out
