goodbye Budapest

Trams, trolleys, buses, and trains have been my mode of transportation while in Budapest. It is a reminder how obsessed Americans are with the car culture. A train will take me to northern Hungary today for Tarpa for several days. Arrangements are being made for me to stay on a farm in Ukraine near the border after my stay in Tarpa.
One more note about Budapest... the suburbs have numerous backyard gardens anointed with lettuce, onions, tomato starts and more! Grapes, cherries (are ripping!) and walnut trees are common. Raw milk is available including fresh, local eggs. I am relishing the local mushrooms and the spring rain.
hugs, your kimski
