Tova and I rugged up today. We had a nice lazy morning, Yuval read Tova some books (Google Talk) and sang songs with her for a while.
Then we went on bus 5 to the City. I didn't really have any plans.. Tova wanted to go on a train and have cake.. so that was our agenda for the day. We didn't do either. Instead we went to the city and our feet took us to the shull. In the rain. Tova stayed nice and dry under snuggly clothes and a plastic pram protector. I stayed warm and mostly dry too. Which is one up on yesterday.
The Shull is beautiful, Yuval would like the mosaic floors. Tova was annoyed there wasn't a concert on. I think she is of the opinion that if it's a beautiful old building there will be a performance of some kind.. We had a quick look around in there. It's very tricky with a pram/wheelchair. I'm glad we went there.
Then we wandered off to find lunch. It took ages. Tova was getting upset. I went into one place that were charging 9700 hufs for brunch.. but we didn't want buffet/brunch. BUT there was a piano player with a chellothingy player, so it was very hard to convince Tova that we weren't going to eat there. She cried when we left.
We ended up at what looked like some little dingy restaurant, but when the menu came out it was all expensive fine dining. However, there was no turning back now. I had a starving Tova. So we got her some food, she complained lots that they should hurry up. lol.. hmm...
After eating we wandered slowly back to the bus and home. It was kinda a nothing day. And no cake and no train. I'm not really sure where the trains actually go. They are all underground and that's all I know.
I wanted to get Nissim a present today. But seriously there isn't anything. A magnet that says Budapest? REAL fur hats, NO THANK YOU! um... wooden objects that I can't take back on the plane coz of customs and that's about it really. There isn't anything special that we can't get at home.. Except for the food.. but I can't take food back. So.. I think he will just have to come here next time and eat.
It was a cold rainy day in Budapest, but we stayed warm and dry. It's so beautiful here, even the rain is beautiful here. It's such a fairy wonder land.
