Budapest Parliament

Took train to Budapest and arrived near dark. Lady on the train came aboard before entering the city offering a hotel that sounded like a good deal. Once off the train, she said it was full but a hostel was available. Used the free ride to get into town but didn't stay in the hostel because of the price. Ended up walking to a Best Western hotel for a similar price. Walked around town at night...a really cool sight and ate at restaurant near the main bridge. In the morning, we had another Euro breakfast at the hotel then headed to the Baths. I hate these places but we had fun in the pools until noon, had some Magnums and then went to the indoor section. Rachelle wanted a massage but it was hard for her to figure out how to do everything when signs were in a different language and with naked fat women everywhere. She decided to bag that idea. We decided to head to Vidam Park area where we rode amusement rides. Tried to go to the circus but we would have missed the train. Took underground subway to town and walked to Parliament. Needed to use up the local money so we had a gyro. Got on the night train in a nice set up, slept really well. An intruder came into our car and got fined by the train guy.
