By the time I arrived in Budapest it was already dark and we left Budapest at 9.15p.m. so my only sight of Budapest was the undoubtedly beautiful and beautifully illuminated buildings along the banks of the river. We seem to have been travelling all night and at some point Vodaphone welcomed me to Slovakia, so I am going to have to visit Hungary again if I want to see Budapest.
One thing I learned in the short time in Hungary, Hungarians don’t call it Hungary or themselves Hungarians, they call it Magyar!
I was invited to dine with the Captain, which turned out to be a dubious honour as Cap. spoke very little English and his guests even less Magyar!
