WOW! Budapest is totally not like how I imaged! For some reason, I thought that Budapest was going to be a very poor and deprived city, but it's much the opposite. On Saturday afternoon, the main streets were buzzing with market stores, street performances and tons of art!!
Along a small street just by our hostel, Raday Utca, we found a pop up gallery, exhibiting illustrations. It happened to finish the day before, but when we asked about it in the book shop next door, a very kind Hungarian man opened it up especially for our viewing pleasure. These are some links to some of favourite artists from the show...

Lots of children stroking it....plus me.
Budapest also had tons of antique shops filled with lots and lots of trinkets that are a joy on the eye!
...and loads of Russian dolls?
...plus hundreds of carpet bags.
...as well as some epic architecture.
ahhhhh i love budapest!
