Got here tired not at sll emotional and quite deeply impressed by the efficiency of the Swiss at Zurich where we changed flights in record time … One national stereotype that is a true one.

Many hours walking trying to stay awake and defeat jetlag also involved our finding a good Hungarian resto for lunch and enjoying excellent beer and a piled plate of goulash and sauerkraut with sour cream … Yum. Enjoyed splendid architecture and a civilized city layout.

I think I like Budapest but tomorrow we have to start doing some work as that is really what we are here for… will take another opportunity to look around on Thursday.

On the birding front things are less good with Gulls, Pigeons and the occasional House Sparrow and Mallard making up the bulk of the birds.
