Fun With Ma Famille (Part I)

(Part) of my family came to visit us in Budapest for 10 days or so. I had my list of things to do, restaurants to try, etc, ready to go and it’s safe to say we kept pretty busy. I won’t go into great detail in the next few posts as I am waay behind on posting.

But Frici Papa’s… I would have been ok if I didn’t return to this traditional Hungarian joint ever again – but apparently everyone else was especially keen on it (to this day I still think they were only raving about it to get my goat).budapest_tourism_0083We did some first-night sightseeing, taking a ride on the adorable Metro Line 1.budapest_tourism_0084budapest_tourism_0085budapest_tourism_0086budapest_tourism_0087Court grabbed my camera whenever she could. She heard this a lot: “yes you can use it but guard it with your freaking life and DON’T drop it”. budapest_tourism_0088budapest_tourism_0089budapest_tourism_0090We tuckered them out so good that we could literally NOT wake them up if we tried.
