A blog about travel in central Europe, living overseas for the first time, adjusting to a different culture, food, "lost in translation" moments, parenting and "enjoying the ride". There will be an occasional rant about trying to learn Hungarian and the Hungarian postal service.
Entering the Buda Castle District. There are restrictions about who can drive there; one group of people who can get in are Hilton guests, who get a card that opens the gate. So weird...
Kiraly (sounds like Kir aye, because "ly" makes the same sound as "j" and and "y") means King. It's also an expression the kids use, with a thumbs up, that means "cool" which Ted and Anna are, of course.
Amerigo Tot, famous Hungarian sculptor (also was in The Godfather). We went to his house in the castle district, which has been turned into a gallery and museum.
Amerigo Tot had a good view from his upstairs window.
Anna on guard duty.
Budapest is beautiful even in the winter, and there are a lot fewer people out, too.
