BudapestBudapest 9th May 2006
My old school friend Patrick has been living and working in Budapest since January, after buying the airport there. I went out to visit him and explore the Hungarian capital a week or so ago.Arriving in Budapest Friday evening I was whisked back to Patrick’s palatial flat. His tennis court sized living room overlooks the Danube, and there’s a sauna, a gym as well as multiple bedrooms. A quick night tour of Pest demonstrated that Hungary has good food and sweaty basement bars.Saturday was a mix of relaxation and chilling. The morning and early afternoon were spent in one of the local spa baths, relaxing in saunas and hot baths, followed by a game of chess over a slow lunch. I lost. That evening we went to Steve’s 40th birthday. Steve is a one of Patrick’s colleagues and his apartment is equally opulent. I had an extremely enjoyable evening drinking cocktails and chatting to pretty Hungarian girls.
