We took a short trip to Budapest, stopping on the way in Bratislava. Why Budapest? My husband, native to Budapest, attended his 60th (!) class reunion. We had lots of bright sun and high temperatures, at least by our standards. My shots aren't particularly representative of either city, just scenes that caught my eye.

A quote by the architect on the project: "This park is about dictatorship. And at the same time, because it can be talked about, described, built, this park is about democracy. After all, only democracy is able to give the opportunity to let us think freely about dictatorship.
