Arrived in Budapest at about 7 am and the bus dumped us out on a street corner across the street from a Bus Terminal. It took us awhile to figure out where we were and where we were supposed to go. Got cash from an ATM in the bus terminal and found the subway entrance and went to the Hotel Ibis in Heroes Square. Great location across the street from some museums, a big monument, the zoo, and the Hungarian Baths.
Slept for a few hours and then took the subway to downtown. Had lunch at McDonald's and walked around for a few hours. Went by the Parliament building and some other stuff along the Danube River then had coffee at a sidewalk cafe and watched the world pass by.
