After a couple of days of walking up, down and among the better known sights of Budapest, I felt like going old-school and borrowed a BIG map from the friendly front desk guys at the Budget Hostel Budapest. Traced my finger along the length of the river Danube and decided to check out what was happening at the farthest end of the map, the part which literally – and I do mean literally – had fallen off the map’s edge, since it’s not counted among the usual areas of interest.
And so I caught a tram and then a train to a small neighbourhood past Óbuda (the oldest part of Budapest), and walked right into a local Community Day where young school kids were all dressed-up to perform Hungarian folk dances, while their families downed pálinkas and cheered. They were nice enough to share some of their pálinkas with me, so I returned the favour by whistling loudly desi style, every time a dance ended. :)
