We have both decided ( quite quickly !) that we both like Budapest very much..period.
The architecture is stunning. And sure we have been walking about for what feels like forever yet it has been a lovely day indeed .. Seen some great sites.. And played at being ‘proper’ tourists.. With a map with scribbles on and everything!
Also stumbled upon.. The great market I think it’s called.. What ever it’s called it is great! Great for porkiness!
They have a special pig here that I won’t even try to spell.. Yet it’s special .. Special indeed!
And after conversing with a number of stallholders I finished up with two great salamis.. And some amazing smoked goose breast.. Stunning! Made me happy indeedo..
It’s amazing really.. The way you can converse through the language of a love if food.. Smiles, grimaces and patting the belly with a few nods and a good belly patting always seems to enable a quick connection with someone who also shares a love of food.. It’s great!
Did try some horrors though.. The weirdest crackling/scratchings.. Soft.. Like on porpoise? What’s that all about huh??
Not for me padre not for me..
Yet the salami was cool as you can wish for.. No! Cooler!
Also I just have to tell you about the Corinthia exec lounge.. It rocks!
They feed and water you EXTREMELY well .. I mean from all range of drinks and snacks.. To amazing cakes and fruits .. Plus to shelf spirits and bio bubbles!!
And served by lovely people.. I have to say that this is OUT AND OUT the best exec lounge I have ever experienced ..
An me and Mrs Fitz are having a quick wine.. With cake for me.. Lemon meringue that is stunning ..
Oh and the frankfurter soup is off the clock .. Like off the clock .. I need that recipe..
What else did I find ?
Goose cracklings ! Wasn’t aloud to buy them though.. Darn travelling with Mrs Fitz!
Looking forward to the rest of Budapest.. As I said .. We like it here!
