Dublin by day, Budapest by night
Submitted by bugsly on Friday, February 3, 2006 - 11:59 Core | Fly | Foreign Language and Music Study | Hungary | Ireland | Walk

This morning we set off for Trinity College in the center of Dublin to see The Book of Kells. The Book of Kells is a sight within itself, with all of its illuminated letters, complex drawings and beautifully scribed Latin. The book itself has been bound into four volumes and depicts the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. I especially enjoyed seeing the complex illuminated letters. My favorite thing about them was the red dotted rim and gold filling on each one.

After moving on and driving to the airport, we boarded our plane to Budapest, Hungary.

Upon arriving in Budapest, we were met by the brother-in-law of the owner of the house where we are staying (a friend’s home that isn’t here right now!). He drove us from the airport to the house in the village of Diósd giving us ideas on local food, shops and how to get around. The house is very comfy, colorful and warm, even though it’s 26 degrees Farenheit outside! Then, when my dad and I walked to the local bar, we stepped inside and had the following conversation…

“Do you speak English?”

“I do not understand English!”

“Food?” (we were pointing to our mouths and making eating gestures!)

“Huh?”

Then we heard rapidfire Hungarian being spoken by the woman and the customer, and just as we were about to leave, she jumped up and pointed to the market nearby. At the market, nobody spoke English either, but we managed to buy enough food and drink for dinner.

And now we are all going to go to sleep because we have had a very tiring day.
