Day Three – Entering Budapest

Well, I had just written an entire entry for today, but the internet stopped working and I wasn’t able to save my entry, arg!  It’s 1:30am and I recently got back from a pub crawl through Budapest.  Therefore, I’m just going to post some pictures from today because I need to be up in a few hours.  A brief overview – after a three hour drive to Budapest, we did some sightseeing in the city, met with the Director of the Jewish Community Center in town, had a delicious dinner at a local restaurant (featured in the NYTimes as a top spot to visit in 2017), and ended the night with a pub crawl to a few bars in the Jewish quarter (THE place to go for nightlife in this city, interestingly enough).  I hope to write some more details tomorrow if/when I get the chance.  But for now, pictures will have to do…
