Moved to a Budapest hotel

Budapest, Rome without the graffiti

As planned, the doctor discharged me today; however, we had hoped to be going directly from the hospital to the airport. Instead, the flights will be on Wednesday. So we are staying in a nice apartment with a separate bedroom (closed off by sliding doors) and a perfect-to-sit-with-my-leg-up couch. I like this because I can sit on the couch during the day and then go to bed later without feeling like I am always in bed :)

We have a kitchen and dining table, which we put to good use, having ordered enough food for dinner and lunch tomorrow. I wanted some comfort food, so we ordered pizza, chicken wings and Caesar salad from Pizza Hut :)

Steve also stepped out to pick up my prescriptions and some fruit for breakfast. While he was out, I realized what I’d really missed in the last week (besides food) was being alone. Except in the bathroom, there is not even an illusion of privacy in the hospital here. At home, we are used to every hospital bed having privacy curtains that can be pulled so you can wash or be examined by the doctor without feeling publicly naked.

Anyway, I enjoyed the hour or so I had alone. I really enjoyed the massive thunderstorm complete with lightning and hail! that happened while Steve was shopping. I had to close the door and clean up the hail off the living room floor. It was a fantastic storm. Steve completely missed it while in the grocery store and it was beautiful and sunny when he went in and again when he emerged 40 or so minutes later.

While he was walking to/from, he took a few more pics. Steve just remarked that he really likes this city. Budapest, like Rome has treasures around every corner, which is what we’ve always said about our walks around Rome. In fact, Budapest buildings are as beautiful as Rome, and without any graffiti. It is truly a great place to visit and I wish I could do it more in person, rather than just through Steve’s pics.

I especially like the details on the Liszt building.
