I realise I haven't posted anything in forever, but no, I didn't die - I just went to Budapest with my husband. It's the most magical city, sliced neatly in half by the river - we stayed on the Pest side, but on walked across the chain bridge to the Buda to check out the National Gallery - the huge sprawling building in the last photo. We did so much cool stuff - went to the thermal baths where we swam and soaked in the different mineral pools, watched a ballet about Don Quixote and pigged out on lovely Hungarian food.
I have to add though, I didn't pig out quite as much as that first picture makes it look like. That was just an open jacket and a bad angle. I mean seriously, it looks like my jacket is trying to eat Victor's jacket here:
And yes, I'm carrying a banana around. All the cool kids are doing it, didn't you know that?
