After traipsing around Budapest for three hours looking for a place to sleep (that will teach me to book ahead in summer) I had just the evening left to explore. Luckily that was long enough to walk to my favourite spot in this big, buzzing city - a bastion near Buda Castle, overlooking the Pest district and Hungary's parliament buildings on the other side of the Danube. I watched night fall and the lights come on across the city before a hefty thunderstorm rolled in.
I also listened to this guy, a fiddler on the ramparts. At 6am the next morning I was on a train to Cluj-Napoca in Romania.
