Decision to ride up to the library was spontaneous – I never know how stressful my workday will be, and don’t plan any outings for my evenings – so I didn’t’ have a camera.

The pictures are grossly inadequate – they were made in haste, by cellphone, and are not much improved by Picasa editing.

You will be better served by going to library collection’s website and looking at professional photos (and listening to professionals’ guidance), here.

Still, I’ll show you some that I am particularly fond of – even if they are just pale hint to the real ones.

8 утра. Комната в будайском “Модном отеле” сдана, багаж оставлен консьержу, у меня 2 часа до заказанного такси и 5 часов до вылета. Полчаса на завтрак (и какой! ах, эти кокосово-бело-шоколадные шарики к кофе с пенкой!)

Вышла из ворот на улице Ури, пересекла квартал до стены и пошла гулять по периметру.

Тихо, безлюдно. Цветут каштаны, семенят собачки, часы бьют на церкви Матиаша.

8am. The guestroom’s key card is surrendered to reception, a porter stored my carry-on, I have 2 hrs till shuttle to the airport and 5 – till my flight. Buda Fashion Hotel’ restaurant fed me their last breakfast, fit for a squadron of hungry Hussars – oh, those coconut-white chocolate balls with cappuccino!

Out the doors I go, across Uri Utca, along the meter-thick  parapet wall,  around the castle hill. There are no people, just occasional doggie and his master on a leash. Heady aroma of blossoming chestnuts, breeze, sun and melodic sounds of clock from the Matthias church.
