it eventually becomes the provincial capital of Panonia Inferior, I can see most of it just walking by.
Leaving Budapest I join a walk/bike path running alongside Road 11; easy four hours walk to Szentendre
a "working Artist Colony" since the 1920's. The character of the town was formed by waves of refugees from Serbia after the Serbs defeat by the Turk's at Kosovo in 1389 and a large group of 6000 in 1690. By the 1890's less than one quarter of the residents were of Serbian origin, today just a few dozen families remain.

Ten minutes walk from the terminal is the Rosinante Hotel a country-style inn with rooms,
spa facilities and a restaurant. It was well past lunch so I ordered, duck with strawberry sauce and
(something like small longish doughnuts) it was unusual and very good. After lunch I continued my walk to Szigetmonostor a small town 2 km. north. A few hundred meters on, I noticed a family of wild piglets
playing in the grass just a few steps in from the road. The island has excellent terrain for horse riding and some good riding schools. On my way back I looked out for the piglets with no luck.
