One Night in Budapest, Hungary

Budapest is a cool town. I had to get back to Germany as my sister had a motorcycle accident (she is ok now!). I had to go back to Germany to take care of my family's house. I heard from a friend that he would be in Budapest for a convention, so that we could meet up there and he would drive to Viennna the next day and then home to Ravensburg.

This was perfect. Instead of traveling alone for 10 hours I could join up with him, split the trip in two and have some fun while getting back home.

I took the train this time to Budapest where I arrived at around 8pm. I was supposed to meet my friend at his hotel at 9pm at the hotel but he didn't show up. I had my first beer and waited more for him. Finally he arrived at 9:45 all pissed. He had met two girls at some tram stop. They asked him to join him for drinks and he quickly went with them. According to him he had drinks at some terrible bar, with 2 average looking women and he left the place with a 70K forint bill ($300). He was so mad and I assured to him that the night was young and we could still have some fun.

So we did... We went to two different clubs/bars and had some $1 beers again (much better than the $300 bill earlier). We went back to the hotel at 5am and had another glass of wine. We slept until 8am and took off to catch the train to the train station as his car was parked in Vienna. Getting there on time was only possibly of course by paying off the cab driver to go faster and faster...

We caught the 9am train just on time and were off to Vienna...
