Buskers: Budapest, Hungary

Halfway through my Peace Corps service, on summer vacation (I taught middle and high school kids so I had a big chunk of my summer off), I traveled up to Budapest, Hungary. What a gorgeous city! While up on the Buda side of the city, we entered the Buda Castle and toured an exhibit they had on display which was 1000 years of music in Hungary. It was a huge exhibit and my friend and I spent a good 3+ hours in there. It was very well done. It had original manuscripts on display, period instruments, information about the composers and listening stations all over. It was so amazing to follow the music on the original manuscript while listening to it in your ear. Wow.

Before we entered though, we happened across these two musicians who were total hams for the camera and very good to boot. We happily left generous tips as we listened to them for a good 15-20 minutes before entering the castle.


Such a beautiful city, Budapest!
