At least its sunny in this picture!

London is cloudy and cold, so I thought I should post this...Budapest in the sunshine. This is part of the Fisherman's Bastion. It is up on the hill in Buda.

I do not understand the whole "Fisherman" part - the only water around Budapest is the river and this is 200m up the hill. But it looks good. The name probably comes from some dodgy translation - maybe there is one word in Hungarian that means both 'fisherman' and 'man who lives in a castle'.

Anyway - it is nice to see the sun.

good point about the name.

The translation is good, it is also in Hungarian fishermans Bastion. This is the parth of the castle where the fishers guild worked and defended the castle hill in the middle ages.

Hi Virag
Thanks for the comment. I think they were healthier people than me...I did not like climbing the hill very often!
