walked across the river to Buda where there is a mountain. wandered up that and got some amazing vistas of the city, then wandered down to the castle, which is on another large hill. checked out the castle and the old town next to it. went into this labyrinth underneath the old town and took lots of architectural photos. then wandered back down towards the river and had a nice, hearty hungarian meal- something like fish and chips but saucier. afterwards met up with a few guys who work at Crytek Budapest and they took us to a couple really cool bars around Astoria. really nice guys- they helped us try out the local equivalent to moonshine and eventually went home completely exhausted and spent. passed out. today the plan is to go caving and then check out the turkish baths this evening.
