dance of light

Széchenyi lánchíd (Chain Bridge) / Budapest, Hungary
Arriving in Budapest on a cool Thanksgiving eve, we were pleasantly greeted with a spectacular view of the Chain Bridge from our hotel window located on the west bank or Buda side of the River Danube. The bridge opened in 1849 and was the first permanent bridge across the Danube linking Buda and Pest. And while I suspect turkey is not a staple of the Hungarian diet - we were able to celebrate the day with turkey, mashed potatoes and goulash at a great little restaurant called Angelika.
