Dear Friends and Families,


Budapest. Been here. Done this. At least that's how it seemed, since Marianne has been in Budapest 8 or 9 times and I've been there a few times myself. This time we were showing friends around, so it felt like we needed to just hits the places we'd seen before. We were blessed with good weather, so I could add to my "postcard pictures" of the Hungarian capital. ("People Pictures" of friends are on the next diary.)

Budapest remains one of my favorite European cities and now we may need ANOTHER trip to expand our tourist knowledge.
