… the Great Synagogue of Budapest (second largest in the world) opened its doors. The style is a mixture of Moorish, Byzantine, Romantic, Gothic, Jewish, and Christian elements–making it a most unusual and fascinating building.


Rotisserie chicken anyone?

Great vibe in this restaurant in Budapest (Pest side of Danube River). The food was excellent as well. Initially I thought someone’s phone kept chirping, but then I noticed a caged bird in the restaurant. Awesome.

Budapest was fun

Hot Night in Budapest

I have several dozen photos to process from the trip, but here was the view from Lions Locker (an overrated breakfast joint). Our favorite breakfast was at Ladó Café. Get the crepes (pancakes according to the menu) with homemade jam, and enjoy, perhaps, the best breakfast you’ve ever had.

P.S. Lions Locker recommended their own crepes. Perhaps they are just as good. We opted for something else given that we had just had crepes the morning before.
