Budapest, Hungary

Last week, I had a chance to go visit friends in Budapest, Hungary. It was such a great time! We were there during the National Holiday, March 15th. The weather was very warm, people came out to celebrate the Independence day of Hungary. We saw many traditional costume and dance! Amazing!

 

Let’s enjoy seeing some pictures from Castle District (taken from March 15th, 2011)

It is a bread roll with different kind of flavors such as cinnamons, coconut, etc. Also there is a classic one, without flavor… so fresh, so good!

We really enjoyed our time there… I will definitely go back again…what an awesome city — Budapest, Hungary!
