Budapest Begins

What can I say about Budapest? It exceeds my expectations, which were already high to begin with. It has been described as having the charm of Prague and the grandeur of Vienna. I wouldn't hesitate to place the architecture near that of Paris - this city is grand and ornate. The streets are beaming with activity. Hungarians seem to be a very kind and social people. Sitting on doorsteps of local pubs, drinking, and chatting is an past-time that extends well in the a.m. Once again, what can I say about Budapest…I'm enamored.
