Buda and Pest

  This morning we wandered around the old part of Pest.  We saw the beautiful Parliament building- the largest on the continent, various monuments marking Hungary's 1000 year civilization,  and lots of beautiful buildings.
  We had lunch at the big Market Hall, and then walked across the Chain Bridge to the other side of the Danube, where Buda is located.

  We rode the funicular to the top of the hill where we saw the changing of the guard at Buda Castle, and from the Fishermen's Bastion we watched Pest light up as darkness fell.

  We recrossed the Danube and had a memorable Hungarian dinner.  Tomorrow we are off on a boat tour!
