So much fun! Timi told me the water spewing from the mouth of the lions is good to drink. There’s an underground acquifer that supplies the city with pure, clean drinking water. I’ve been drinking the tap water with no ill effects…thank you God…and it is good water.
Are these people having fun or what?! I’d say YES!
As we strode up the subway steps, this was the sight that greeted us; I gasped aloud! This is the 19th century monument depicting the beginnings of Hungary. It’s not entirely sure from whence the seven original tribes came…perhaps the Ural Mountains, Mongols, Ukraine, some other part of Russia…but I dare say there aren’t people alive today who can sculpt like this!
Recently, Jane and Lance posted an entry entitled “Messing About in Boats” and today, Timi, Mikki, Metta and I saw the exhibition. I might as well admit, because my comment on their post bears this out, this exhibit left me…shaking my head and saying, “whaaaat?” It’s something that needs to be seen to fully appreciate it, at least that’s what I believe now that I’ve seen the exhibit. Please read their post but I found the exhibit to be quite witty and what it lost in photographic translation, for me at least, it more than made up for in viewing!
Oh, how I would have loved to take a ride in one of these beautiful boats. The lake is quite shallow, only about a meter so, if need be, one could walk around and barely get their knees wet. But these boats are so beautiful; I felt the need to row one and phooey on the rain anyway!
