Budapest for 1.5 days

If I could describe Budapest using two words, it would be 'grey' and 'mysterious.' The weather wasn't so great during the 1.5 days; it was raining, cloudy and foggy -- definitely not the best time to take photographs. Still, they turned out alright after some post-processing. :)

My travel buddy this time was Alvin, and despite our super uncomfortable wet shoes, we tried to make the best of the trip. Alvin's friend, Albert from Canada met up with us and showed us around despite his busy study schedule for med school finals.

The Chain Bridge
The city is divided into two parts by the river Danube; Buda on the west bank and Pest on the east.
Hungarian Parliament Building

Walking around the city, I noticed a lot of Roman-esque buildings. It turns out, Romans declared this city the capital of Pannonia Inferior.
