Day 1&2: Flights, Touring Budapest, Adventureland

Dear Mommy and Tatty,

We have arrived!! We arrived in Budapest yesterday after a long 7 hour flight from JFK. We had a short layover in Switzerland and then we landed in Budapest in the afternoon. Although we were exhausted, we fought the jet lag and started our touring! We went on a river cruise down the Danube and saw beautiful buildings. We saw all kinds of buildings, from the parliament, to hotels and restaurants. We got back to the hotel around 9:30 or 10:00 and got to sleep! The next morning we got up bright and early and went to an adventure park called Kalandpayla. Kalandpayla has a big collection of ropes courses ranging from very easy to very hard. We also took a tour of the Dohany Shul. The Dohany Shul is a world famous shul with almost 3000 seats. Every little intricate detail made the shul jaw-dropping. We heard stories about people in the ghettos who would try to come to the shul, and stories about Theodore Hertzl and his life. To end off this amazing day we watched an amazing folk dance performance. There were two violins and a chelloist and a cimbalom player. The first two days were already unbelievable!

Love your daughter,
Shayna Roberts
