Hello, Budapest

We landed in Budapest at 6 pm. We didn't want to waste a minute, so as soon as we were settled (easy with no luggage!) we hit the streets.

On our first evening out we
  • Bought passes and figured out the Metro
  • Found a restaurant with nothing but an address and a map (we’re claiming victory here, but Google Maps failed us, as it often does abroad, and the addresses and street names are bizarro)
  • Saw Heroes Square, a landmark monument, lit up at night
  • Stumbled across a live concert where they release hundreds of balloons filled with glow lights
  • Talked to actual Hungarians while waiting for the train
  • And, most importantly, found our way back to the hotel in the dark.
