These are our photos from Budapest, Hungary.  We live in an apartment on Logodi Street adjacent to the castle district from 12 Jan to 14 Mar 07.  We have 61 days to take daily trips visiting sites dating from 110 AD. 

Here we are with our hosts (apartment owners) and friends Zoli and Ami. We enjoyed two meals with them during our visit to their beautiful country. We talked much about Hungary and Colorado. They are wonderful to us and provide all our apartment and information needs.

This is the apartment building we live in until the middle of March 2007. From here we take daily walking, bus and metro trips around Budapest and outlying areas.

This is our kitchen-dining area.

Wow, it's 12 Jan 07, our first day in Budapest. After a long day and night of travel and settling into our apartment, we immediately set out to see a bit of Budapest. Here's Lori on Castle Hill, the Buda side of Budapest, overlooking the Danube to Hungary's Parliament (1884-1902).

17 Jan 07 Lori with her little dream car, a Smart Car. Most of the automobiles here are very small with efficient, small engines.

17 Jan 07 Fruit stand in the central market hall in the Pest side of Budapest. Built in 1896 this market was once Budapest's central location for meats and produce coming in from the countryside. It's a bustling center of activity open 12 hours a day, six days a week.

Above Photo: 17 Jan 07 Image of Christ on the cross in St Stephen's Basilica. Lower Photo: 17 Jan 07 Small tiles make this mosaic image of Christ, perhaps 100' off the floor of St Stephen's Basilica. To see it in real life is stunning.
