Buda Pest

We arrived in Hungary two days ago and all I can say is Wow. I didnt expect much of Hungary because no one ever tells me that they are going to visit. Italy...yes. France...yes. Hungary is always an itinerary adder. It is a country where you have a few spare days to spare and decide to make a detour from Vienna.

Hungary was on our list because we dont know many Hungarians and we heard lots of positives about Budapest. Also, the food is in a class of its own. European food after a while is bland and boring. However, Hungary loves Spice (paprika, paprika, paprika).

Our host family rolled out the red carpet for us with food, food and more food. Wow, can Panna cook and she taught me a thing or two on how to make her dishes. To make things even better half of the food comes from the garden that Tamas (prounounced Thomash) tends. They have raspberries, strawberries, and cherries all growing in their yard. At their insistence, we picked cherries until we fell over. We walked with them when they walked their dog and they let Joe pet their two kitties (I have the pic in my camera)
