Been hanging out in Eastern Europe the past few days. We are having a great time in Budapest so far! Enjoyed 3 hours today in the public baths in various pools ranging in temp from 20C to 40C including the 70C sauna -whew! Did you know some of the residential parts of town are littered with caves under the homes? We spent 5 hours spelunking through a 19km long cave. At times you could barely squeeze through a number of parts of the cave it was so narrow and rocky. You had to lie flat on your stomach and inch along like a worm until the channel widened slightly. And we only explored like 800 meters of this tunnel – imagine how long it would take to traverse the entire 19km!
Looking forward to cruising the Danube tomorrow as well as hanging out in the wine bars drinking the delicious semi-sweet wine from the Tokaj wine region. More to come!
Neat website with beautiful pics. Spelunking is certainly not for the faint of heart.
It’s a beautiful city!
