Budapest by Night

After dinner aboard, climbed on a bus for a sweltering, windless, guided tour of 30C Budapest by night, including a trip to the magnificent St. Stephan's Cathedral and a climb up Gellert Hill to the Statue of Liberty monument for a bird's-eye view of the city at night.  The bridges, parliament, and churches were all lit up, a very pleasant panorama.
