Morning arrival on the Danube, the spectacular Parliament Building ahead
I never tired of looking at Parliament
The Chain Bridge, a remarkable feat, constructed late 19th century
Looking at Pest from the Buda side of the Danube, at the "Castle."
On a foggy Monday morning we landed at an island near Budapest where we were taken by buggy to a Magyar (Hungarian) Cowboy ranch to watch an amazing display of horsemanship
The horses are called Lippizaner and are very impressive
an impressive display
In war it was a valuable skill to be able to get the horse down on the ground, an unnatural position
a little humor from the cowboy
imagine driving five horses while straddling two of them!

I walked across the bridge on our first night in Budapest. Castle lit up on a Buda hill in background
