Today Maia is under the weather, – the kind where you cough so much you vomit, poor child- and therefore staying home from nursery. Still her usual self, she is sat on the floor playing with her dinosaurs, sniffling away and making our living room look like a Toys R Us truck exploded in here overnight. I am thankful that at this age, she can keep herself entertained for longer than five minutes at a time; her imagination is both magical and incredibly helpful. I can actually get things done, well, I can accomplish very small tasks. I do not have long.
So with only a few minutes before her next request, I thought I’d try and compose a few words about my third day in Budapest. It was not easy. I was interrupted every couple of minutes and decided that the following bullet point summary of my day would suffice:
Breakfast at Fat Mama – the restaurant next to our hostel- with Ruby and Henry.
Heroes’ Square with Henry. (Below)
Notice the Hungarian Agricultural Museum,(below) in the distance, walk over and discover it is magical, (fairy-tale like), decide to have a wander around.
Meet Ruby for coffee.
All go into St Stephen’s Basilica (below), experience those spiritual-feels I had in Matthias Church the previous day (see this post here).
Say goodbye to Henry, who was taking the train back to Munich.
Head to the river with Ruby.
