Taken me a while to get the photos together from last week, but here they are…
Here are a few views from my business trip to Budapest, Hungary, starting with the view from my bedroom window in the Budapest Hilton across to a tower of the old Buda Castle.
More views of Buda Castle (above) and a church being restored (below), with amazing mosaic tiles. Someone said that all the churches with mosaic like this have been converted into museums. Not sure if it’s true.
We visited the Labyrinth, which are basically caves hewn from the rock under Buda castle, and which now serve as a restaurant for tourists. As part of the medeaval banquet we were joined by the (mock) King and Queen (above), some belly dancing girls, complete with snake and fire eater (below).
The view (below) from Buda Castle (on the Buda side of the river Danube) to the Budapest Parliament Building (on the Pest side of the river Danube).
Moving to another hotel, this time the New York Palace Hotel, in Pest. This is the view (below) from outside.
And this was the view from inside.
