Final stop Budapest, just a ride through the outer suburbs to the eastern outskirts of the town through Godollo to Pecel my brothers home, here I will rest for a few days before I continue with the non cycling part of my trip. I think the following photos represent a broad history of the city the Buda hills with Matyas Church the walls of the reinforced castle walls and the Royal Palace now a museum, from the past.
The new water-sport center for the up coming World Championship is completed and has been tested with the the Hungarian Water-Polo and Swimming finals being held and televised from it.
Most importantly the city's restaurants and cake shops are always ready including the 160 years old Gearbaud on Vorosmarty square, it could count on a visit from ' Sissy' wife of Emperor Franz Joseph and Queen of Hungary when staying in Budapest.
All the best to all. Tom.
