5th Hungarian New-Wine and Cheese Festival

Vajdahunyad Var (pictured) is the location for the festival this year in beautiful City Park. Although it is raining, the weather is at least milder.

In addition to the festival, today is the first day of Advent and Christmas lights will be lit for the first time this season throughout the city. While in City Park there are many other options for entertainment: the ice skating rink (the first in Budapest) is open for young and old, restaurants, Szechenyi baths, the Zoo, Hero's Square and the famous Gundel Restaurant.

Rainy Week-End I would rather remember beautiful Sorrento in the spring. The hotels on the cliff overlooking the harbor.

Nice to be Back

Although it was drizzling at times when I drove back to the village, I took the 'high road' literally. There are some incredible homes on what used to be grazing land - guess some of it still is for their horses.
Driving past these palatial homes, I got up above the village into the vineyards. Take a look at what someone made their week-end work 'home' when there is a lot of work done with the grapes. Rather than go home, just spend the night.

Dear Friends and Visitors

Due things beyond my control, I will be away from my computer until approximately mid-November. Know that I am thinking of you even if I can't read you. Like the Arnold said: "I'll be back."
