This morning we enjoyed a lovely walk around Pest, well actually we got lost so instead of looking at the dead hand of the first King of Hungary at the St Stephen’s Basilica, named after him, we find cosy little courtyards, lots of old buildings that looked very important and great little beer gardens. The weather is hot and sunny so walking between the shade of the tall buildings is very pleasant and the good news is we did eventually find our way back.
The markets are our next stop to pick up some bits and pieces for a nice home cooked dinner tonight – no getting lost now we have our guide back with us.
The weather changed rather abruptly with a sudden torrential downpour which seemed to last quite some time with us hiding out in a shoe shop. Thankfully it doesn’t stop us from getting to the baths, of which there are many to choose from although mainly in the Buda part.
