Reluctantly departed our nice accommodations, and the beautiful city of Vienna, for Budapest. We drove along the Danube in Vienna and for a short distance after leaving the city. Beautiful turquoise water. Entering the countryside we continued to observe many very large wind turbines. Hungary also has turbines. These folks are monsters and there were certainly over a thousand producing no pollution, only clean electricity.

At the Austrian/Hungarian border we saw our first refugees. They were just inside the Austrian border, looked desperate, almost running. There were large tents on the Austrian side for them. By contrast, there was nothing on the Hungarian side, and we saw no refugees there.

Our two eastern European cities are Prague and Budapest. Aspects of the former were impressive, but all told, Budapest is more impressive, and thus far the people friendlier.

Our pictures include a Bird waiting for her meal in the mid afternoon at a street side restaurant. The atmosphere nice, the food not so much. In fact, while we have had a couple of fairly good meals on this trip, nothing yet outstanding. The other pictures are taken along the Danube. This is a broad beautiful river in this city, a joy to watch. The icing on the cake is our apartment is a hundred yards away.
