Day 3 Pics

Here are six of the pictures from our third day in Budapest. Click on the pictures for larger versions.

A view of the Danube, Margit Island and Parliament from Chain Bridge.

A view of Chain Bridge and St. Stephen's Basilica from Castle Hill.

Andrea next to the stone fortifications surrounding the Royal Palace on Castle Hill.

The altar and one of the stained glass windows in Matthias Church on Castle Hill.

Our Hungarian grandma, who only pretended she didn't want to pose for a picture. In true grandma style, she keeps trying to feed us cookies when we are already full, including for breakfast this morning.

Speaking of Grandma, this is a picture of the dessert she made for dinner last night. It is what we described as an apple German pancake-like dessert with meringue topping. She said the name of it is Magiya Rakas, which means "witch's bonfire pile" because the layers are stacked up like wood in a bonfire pile to burn a witch.
