Budapest

Fantastic city. So much to see, so much to do. I went up to the citadella today. That's a long walk up a big hill, 230 m high according to Wikipedia. I visited a 2000 year old Roman church that was on the front lines as a Garrison and in the basement of a modern church. One of the guys there was from Texas and effectively gave me a tour. There was something unlabelled in the altar and he told me it was a saint's heel bone. I also had the opportunity to tour parliament. What a beautiful building inside. There were labeled  cigar holders for each member of the house of Lords. After all the touring I went to Margaret Island to relax and wait for darkness to see Budapest lit up because it is a beautiful place at night.

WiFi here is a hit or a miss. Uploaded all the pics yesterday in like three minutes. Not they're not uploading at all.
