Budapest 2

walked at least 20 miles today. At least from st stephens down along the Danube to the market then to the hungaria hotel with a couple from Connecticut.

Funny meeting familiar faces here.

In case anyone is curious, I can't get my primary email here. My hotmail account works.

blogging from budapest

the hydrofoil was really fast but noisy. Had long delay at a lock which made us quite late. Traffic here is nuts. First impression is grey, dishevelled and ugly. Had hard time figuring out where pedestrians cross. Had great supper. Now we have our first night in the same room. Sigh. Back to reality. Laundry and all.

Last day in austria

yesterday was schoenbrunn palace day. Two of us went to another museum after while the shell(e)ys wandered around town. We found the concert church, lit another candle and checked out a fancy glass place.

Roommate and friends are trying to figure out the ubahn stops. They are going to the flohmarkt. I am taking a vacation from people, packing and catching up with the news. We sing mass and a 20 minute concert at St Peters this afternoon then have a banquet. Very early tomorrow we catch the hydrofoil for Budapest. No idea what we will get into there except the two shell(e)ys will no longer have "private" bedrooms. Her light was on at 4 this morning and I was obviously also awake.

I am tired of cigarette smoke!!! I had a terrible sore throat yesterday and thought I was getting sick but apparently not. Am tired enough tho.

We had enough Austrian food in mondsee and have eaten Egyptian and Mexican food. LOL.

I'm looking forward to going home. And getting reliable internet access. Argh
