I have been in Hungary for 7 days now, and I apologize for noy blogging a lot sooner, I have done so much since i have been here that I can't wait to tell you all about. First of all I will talk about the "interesting" meal that I had on my first day in Hungary. My meal started with a bowl of goulash, a beef soup, with many spices in it. I then tried some stuffed cabbage, which was very tasty, and then to end my meal I tried a cottage cheese dumpling...let's just say my stomach does not think that the concept of cottage cheese and dumplings do not go together very well. Because of the effect that the dumplings had on my stomach I stayed in my room the next two days. On the 6th I took a walk along the Danube River and caught an amazing short cruise along the river with live music and a meal. I saw so many views of the Budapest Parliament across the river! On the 8th, I was picked up at my hotel for A an amzing tour of the Hungarian country, I flew over Lake Venice and the area surrounding Budapest in a hot air balloon!!! I can't believe it! After getting over my small fear of heights, I really enjoyed the tour! nOthing as exciting as a hot air ballon tour happened today, but I walked through the streets of Budapest, turning whereevr I felt and seing tons of amazing buildings. I can't wait to do more exploring and update you during my trip!
