To Budapest by train

In march me and Aleš went to Budapest to meet Ákos Horváth and his co-workers. This time we were travelling by train. It was nine hours journey, not much to see or do, except planning sightseeing in Budapest.

> Aleš planning where to go and what to see in Budapest

After arrival to Budapest, Ákos kindly picked us up and drove us to Gödöllő, where we spent the night in dormitory. Compared to dormitory in Ljubljana this place was very, very quiet.

Next morning after strong coffie....
...happy face appeared :)

This day was all about business and science projects. First Ákos show us around his work place, where we had opportunity to see fish tank system for growing zebrafish and some other neat stuff, then we discussed possibility for international collaboration. Hopefully we could join our forces to do some fancy stuff together. Our stay with Ákos ended with lunch and a drive back to Budapest.

We had day and a half for seeing known and unknown attractions in Budapest and we tried to see them as much as we can. At that time "The Human Body Exhibiton" was presented in Budapest and we had to go. Well, I wanted to go (Aleš was not very excited about seeing human bodies and organs) and so we went. After exhibition (Aleš was unusually pale) we went to see some other attractions.

> Great Market Hall

> Matthias Church

> Fisherman's Bastion

 > Chain Bridge

> St. Stephen Basillica (we almost broke in, fortunately monk showed us the right door)

> Buda Castle at night
