Budapest, Hungary

 We decided to take advantage of the Hop On Hop Off Bus since it was so cold!  
We stopped at Saint Stephen's Church first. 
 They were setting up a Christmas Market across the street.
 I think I have a picture like this from every church we've visited in Europe!  
Sit down while you can boys!

 After riding around the city for awhile, we stopped at the Budapest market.
 We went straight upstairs to look at the FOOD!
 We ordered a stuffed chicken breast and a cabbage roll.   Everything was so good!
 We walked around and bought some Hungarian paprika.  
 Nate wanted a bowl of goulash to warm his soul before we started the afternoon.
 We walked to the bus stop.  Unfortunately, we just missed the bus.  
We had to stand outside for about 40 minutes!  It was cold!!
 At least we had good view of the castle.

 Ahhhh warmth!!  Unfortunately, it lasted about 10 minutes and then we had to switch buses.
 Our next stop was Budapest Fine Arts Museum to see the Rembrandt paintings.
 We even lucked out and saw some Monet paintings!
 Hero's Square is right across from the museum!
 We had a FULL day!  We stopped for sushi!
Nate remembered a crepe place across from the metro stop near our hotel.  We all enjoyed a crepe.

Our hotel was across the river from the Parliament building.  
The building is pretty during the day, but absolutely gorgeous at night!
