Little walk in the evening

I am guilty to make this world-class "kitsch" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitsch) picture while we were walking July 11, 2006 (and waiting to get to our train departing late evening for Istanbul). It's difficult to resist, even for the "natives". So sorry ....

World-class shopping malls

You will find here everything you need - and more. This shopping mall is within 200 yards from the Nyugati Railway Station.

Excellent public transportation BUT!!!

But make sure, you buy and validate your tickets! The ticket revisors of Budapest are trained to smell blood and they hunt in packs for tourists. This picture was taken July 10, 2006 - and it's a rarity because there was NO revisor in sight: they were behind of us and disapointed that there was no "catch" on tis station. Make sure your tickets are valid and spend your money somewhere else, not in paws of these fine ladies and gentelman.

    Haha... hegehogs prefer 'meat' (worms&insects&cat food) to apples, those from our garden always finish the food from my cat if she doesn't. I saw them how they ate it.

    When I tried to get explanations I realised that the phone number given on the website is for travel agency. And the mobile number is just for leaving a message. Without any indication that you reached organgeways.com number.

    You might think your picture of the Chain Bridge is kitsch but I think it's stunning. Mine can't compare to that one ;) Mind giving me some photography tips? Have a good day :)
