George leads us on a bus tour of
Buda and Pest, with stops along the way.
The afternoon is ours, so
Dennis, Christine, Deb and Don
enjoy the Szechenyi Baths with hundreds of locals.
A surprise cruise tours the light-filled waterfront.
Good-byes are said,
but Deb and Don spend an extra day
exploring Castle Hill and Vaci Utca
before going home via Berlin and JFK.
