Would you really want to eat him?
At 1pm, we met part of our group and the local guide to visit SZENTENDRE, a cute shopping village with cobble-stoned streets and many little shops, all in one area. Two girls from the other Cosmos group were late, so our bus left them in Budapest. We toured the MARZIPAN MUSEUM that had many things on display made of marzipan ranging from from the House of Parliament, kings and queens, cartoon characters, animals and even a life-size figure of Michael Jackson! Imagine having to eat him! No thanks!!!!
We enjoyed a drink and cake with chocolate icing at an inn and then climbed many, narrow steps to a Greek Church. Our guide pointed out that people grew their gardens in the center of their homes. Up here we had views of this and many red rooftops of the village. There was also a "Blue Angel" on top of one of the churches. Our guide gave us another hour on our own to shop. I mostly window shopped until I met up with Liam and Sylvia, the couple we met our 1st day. I saw a shirt I liked and Liam was trying to bargain for me but the price was still the same. It was a good thing I didn't buy it because later I found a more traditional one in our hotel gift shop that I really liked. We had Marzipan for dessert a few times and I can honestly say that I did NOT like the taste of it. I'll take chocolate over that any day!
