Adventures on our first day in Budapest, showed to be an interesting sight. We happened to go on their "spring cleaning day" which we researched after walking down the streets piled high with unwanted remnants of peoples past years.
Shoes on the Danube Bank
It was an eyeopening experience to stand where 60 Budapest Jews were shot into the Danube river, and made to leave their only valuable item, their shoes. This beautiful iron installation conceived by Can Togay and created by sculptor Gyula Pauer is a memorial to honor all of the Jews killed by the Arrow Cross Militiamen.

Pesti Disznó: delicious bistro we ate dinner at
Hosök tere: The Heroes' Square
With no set plan and uncomfortable sleep on an 8 hour train ride, 7 of us girls wandered the streets of Budapest seeing beautiful sights, eating delicious food, relaxing in baths, and making great memories.
