We had the kind of flight that is perfect–uneventful! We were so tired from the past few weeks of business and “giving out,” we arrived extra exhausted. I will take a “collapse” day and may not even get out of our hotel room. My husband does not have that privilege.
It was raining when we arrived. How I remember the cold, gray, and dark days of living in Hungary a few years ago. Somehow, though, I have always loved the rain, so it was cozy getting settled into our hotel on the Danube River with the cold rain outside streaking the windows.
We are eager to meet old friends and make new ones, and we have some old favorite haunts that we want to visit again like Cyrano’s restuarant and shopping on Vaci Street. I hope to pick up a new piece of Herrend pottery while I am here, but mainly it is great to see the precious people of Hungary. There are many Jews in the city, and they are experiencing a strong upsurge of anti-Semitism here again.
The church must be prepared.
So many things are rolling around in my heart, but for now, I am enjoying a great cup of early morning coffee, and a book. It is still raining, and I really need a down day…
City photos coming…

Actually , holing up with the rain coming down sounds like a marvelous retreat!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Yes, I am enjoying my “collapse” day here in Budapest. It is still raining and dark out, but the warmth and peace inside has been a respite for me.
