Three Days Visit to Budapest

Budapest, Hungary 2008
 This is about my summer vacation in Europe (1st destination). Sophia (Taiwanese classmate) and I departed Taipei @ 19:30 via KLM, stop-over to Bangkok to Amsterdam. It was tiring, we waited 5 hours (+2 hours delayed) in Amsterdam for the connecting flight. After 19 hours, we arrived in Budapest around 15:00 the following day! We met Melinda (Romanian classmate) and her mom.

Hungary is in Central Europe and its capital is Budapest is divided by a river. Buda lies on the plains while Pest is more hills.
Since photos speak louder than words, here are some of them to share:
