Dear Diary

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

When I first imagined our time in Budapest, I thought it would be hardship, expense, dense language study and long nights working for my business all in the name of an occasional twenty minute break to sit at in an open street cafe, sipping coffee/beer/wine in the sun and saying, “Dang, I’m in Europe.” Today was one of those twenty minute days.

Gabi and I walked out of the apartment with no destination except to look at restaurants and take the best-looking one for lunch today. We walked to a pedestrian street (Vaci Utca) three short blocks away. The photos above show the street and one pub we stopped in front of. If you look in the distance, at the end of the street is the enclosed Farmers’ Market that we took Dan-dan and Camilla to our first week here (and wrote about on the blog).

We ended up at a Thai restaurant that Gabi had been to eleven years ago. Great food! And we stopped at an open street cafe for coffees and dessert. Sumptuous!

“Your 20 minutes are over! Back to work!”
