Visit to Gul Baba's Grave in Buda

GulBaba.jpg

What looked like it may turn into a rainy day and spoil our plans, turned out perfectly. Six of us gathered by McDonalds on Sunday afternoon and with a bit of prompting took the bus up the hill just above our destination. (On the theory that it is easier to walk downhill than up.)

After taking in the view and figuring out what the admission charge was going to be, we've listened to a short but enthusiastic background of the shrine. For instance, I did not know that during Ramadan the faithful come to the shrine to pay homage as the only holy shrine on the old continent.

The tiles and bright hues, the peaceful and nicely maintained grounds made this a pleasant place to be. The gallery in the building next to it had an exhibit of Hungarian artists - but what was even more fun was the acoustics. Standing across the room I heard speech as if it were spoken directly in my ear.

The above picture could have been timed better, as we still sit by an empty table. An anticipating crowd waited for their 'white hot chocolate', tea, coffee or beer.

After a pleasant chat we began our descent on foot and took the tram back into the city. It was a pleasant outing and our luck held out with the rain.

I thank those who came and look forward to seeing many of you at our visit to the Labirinth on April 20th. See details, by clicking on upcoming events.

The following list of on-line cookie recipes was making the circuits a few years back in Christmas mailers. I was fascinated by it then and still am so I thought I would share it with those of you who love cookies.

Chill the milk and let's begin.
