One tacky plastic blue and yellow 'plane' ride later..a scary metro and were in the heart of Budapest.. Booked into our hostel..Very nice..
Our room is a good bunch of people.. A 'i have a gameshow theme toon in my head' girl, Omid, Omid's brother, Rob, Jems and I
Australians, Kiwis, Americans and Guerns all under one roof
Were pretty knackered but we went out and about to the buda palace and a really really scary labrynth.. Bay was scared.. and you could only see some parts of it with the flash of your camera..it had an end finale in the dark but we were a bit too scared to do it..plus there were chinese men in it..doing..strange things
So then we walked all the way back through the labrynth and exited through the entrance..
Strolled across Chain Bridge and we were back in Pest..Pest is much nicer than buda..and much larger..
We were tired but we started drinking.. 4 hours later Jemma went to bed.. Bay went to a student club..had a peanut eating competition with a kiwi..
I lost..of course..
Singing along to dire straights 'so the club's not banging'..but some sick freshers later and we were enjoying the delights of pre adult types singing english karoake in hungarian accents..
Dancing to Dr Dre 2000 and we were on our way back from the club for about 3.30
Got up..Hungover..2 ham and eggs and cwaffees please..
We climbed a mountain..it got dirty..and we found ourselves at the top of the citadel..liberation monument after a bit of 'come and see my sexy box' and some hot wine
Hungarian men are scary folk..they look at you like your actually a kebab..
Went to the Jewish community and synagogue..
Went to burger king for dinner..apparently they don't serve beer as previously believed.
Back to the hostel..a feww beers later and we were off out to meet our ukranian counterpart Daniel, Rob and Minneapolis Michel Moore..and annoying women..
we also met some israeli girl..she was nice..
A few hours after the peanut bar we were at the 24 hour store loading ourselves up with heinekins, raspberry beer types and 'like seafoodishy crisps? no way'
We had to be quiet for pokemon women so we drank in the luonge..watched a fight..then went to bed..'horizontal time'
Woke up late around 12..went and ate a colossal amount of food for $3 then crossed the bridge to Buda.. Up to the rock church..'that's pathetic'.. 'thank god it's free'..
Walked ambitiously towards Margaret Island but it started to rain so we headed back to Pest and got lost..dammit we went round in circles for ages..Budapest network of roads is crazy..and the traffic is terrible and the road works are neverending..but on the plus it is a beautiful city..and as for now..were on our way to a jazz bar..after some beer..obviously
