    Thanks, very interesting. A city I have unfortunately not spent a huge amount of time in but always enjoyed it when I have.

    I have a pic of that area, with a totally boring skyscape :D:

    The guy behind it is Feelgood's manager - he also owns the pub I normally stay at, the Oysterfleet.

    Now to bed.

    Doesn't look as if I'll see much of Budapest today. Had a dental appointment, check up & cleaning. All well. A bit of hanging about though. Double bookings, they're usually more efficient than that.

    I hardly slept at all last night and fell asleep when I got back from the clinic and its now 16.17 in Budapest and -4C outside.

    Might go out tonight with some guys I met at the clinic. Two Irishmen, two Chinesemen and a Welshman walk into a bar ...

    Or I might eat in the hotel, feeling wrecked.

    I was rather reluctant to try this restaurant out when I was in Budapest last year - can't work out why.

    Maybe while you are in Budapest, and if you are staying nearby - and if it isn't just too damn cold at night - you can have a look at the effect I mentioned in regard to the towers of the Belvárosi Plébániatemplom (the inner city parish church), on the Pest side of the Elizabeth Bridge.

    Mentioned last year on The Optical Illusions Appreciation Thread.

    I know that church. Might have a look tonight if it isn't - 20 c!

    Will avoid that restaurant!

    Just had another vast Hungarian breakfast so I won't be hungry for a while.

    Hope the tooth engineering is going well, Ramon.
    With all the dental work you've been having, you must have film star teeth!

    Not quite!

    But they are bionic!

    Just the check up & cleaning, implants are fine. Dentist is happy with my dental hygiene.

    Its very cold here, - 7c but with a humidity of 80% so its a wet cold. I walked in as far as the Danube (25 minutes) but retreated back to my hotel due to conditions. I didn't pick a great weekend for a visit. I was here in February last year and while cold it was drier, with Sun shining most of the time.

    I've been in Liverpool for a couple of days. Stayed with a friend who lives in a street which just happens to be No. 1 on this list :

    http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/nostalgia/tom-slemen-liverpools-top-10-4869306

    Nothing paranormal in his flat, but he is in the basement of a former hotel - he tells me a lady who was in a flat on the 2nd floor became so frightened of the place she moved out.

    In the same street is this :

    http://www.urban75.org/blog/the-curious-pyramidal-tomb-of-william-mackenzie-in-liverpool

    which I visited and photographed - however I'm having a senior moment and can't remember how to upload photos - I'll put one up later :)

    Also visited the Cavern club and about 20 pubs, which might be a better explanation for the memory loss.

    I stayed in Rodney Street a few years ago; we had a vast room on the top floor of a slightly faded hotel. The en-suite bathroom had plain glass floor-to-ceiling windows, which would have been less of a problem if the vertical blinds had been all present and correct. There were old shops with storerooms above across the street and I supposed I was not overlooked as I prepared to unleash my torrent down the big white telephone.

    Cue the arrival of the open-top tour bus, whose top deck was exactly level with the bathroom! :rofl:
