|Our first night in Budapest was spectacular. The monumental architecture built between 1850 and 1900 was showcased in lights. Here is the Chain Bridge linking the past towns of Buda and Pest into the modern day city of Budapest.|
|Jackie, Jonny and Buckshot (others know him as Aspen), friends from Calgary met us in Budapest. We spent the week loving a 8 month old baby and seeing the sights. Self-guided walking tours, museums, mineral baths...Buckshot did it all.|
|Square donuts...they completely fulfilled exceptional expectations!|
And so, we say goodbye to Europe. It's been three months of autumn, kind people, and cultures that form the base of our culture in North America. Our experience has been foundational for the great unknown in the countries new-to-us that lie ahead. Tomorrow morning we travel to Mumbai, India. A modern mega-city of 18 million and a culture that Sampson, Markos and Tarn are only familiar with through movies and the people from India that they have met. Rick and I traveled Rajasthan and the area between Delhi and Nepal by bicycle in 1999. We are now headed to the more tropical regions of India. The states of Goa, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. We are excited for the adventure that lies ahead!!!
