The train was comfortable and the coffee very good. As we passed through the high country on the border we saw the first real snow. Later in the hills between Györ and Budapest there was a blanket of snow, some fallen overnight - but in Budapest none.

Györgyi took us to our hostel. It was situated three floors up, in a courtyard, which we are finding is quite typical in this part of the world. It a little wierd but clean and had all the facilities we needed. Our host, Adam, was doing renovations and was anxious to make us at home, and to help us with discovering the city. His advice was to walk rather than take the tube, so by the time I got back from changing money and purchasing a few groceries I was reasonably familiar with city plan.

Shopping was almost successful. Delia made scrambled eggs with the sour cream I purchased thinking it was milk. They both begin with tej.....

I discovered the local cake shop, yummy Döbös Torte!!
