The best moments in life, at least for me, are the ones that i share with great friends. i am a bit sentimental, or perhaps i am just mental, but i love my friends, my true friends and i miss them when i cannot see them or talk to them for long periods of time.
i have had many friends over the years of my life, but unfortunately i have lost many because of my gypsy heart that feels the need to roam from place to place.
During my visit back to Hungary i was able to visit many friends, but the most inspiring was Julia. She has had a terrible year, but she still carried a smile and a positive attitude.
We enjoyed a surprisingly excellent meal at a local Hungarian restaurant, Jelen Bistro, located near Blaha tram stop and the best hostel in Budapest, Beat Hostel, where i made a new friend Laszlo. He made me feel comfortable during my stay. Beat Hostel is small, but has a friendly staff and a kitchen to cook your meals.
i can highly recommend Jelen if you are looking for a delicious meal. They even have a Sunday Brunch, which includes Pancakes American-style. If you decide to visit Jelen, then i suggest you sit outside so you can see the colourful people walking by as we did. We saw a “woman” who had a one too many visits to a plastic surgeon. i am still not sure if she was a real woman. We also witnessed a documentary filming which involved the police.
