The last day at this city was definitely amazing. It was always hard to say goodbye, especially to a magnificent city like Budapest. The weather was as crisp as usual in late May, and I was so thrilled to know we would have an evening feast at a fancy boat on the Danube River.
We had an entirely free morning until the exciting final presentation in the afternoon. Not used to being conclusive, I felt slightly hesitant to come up with five “profound” words to describe the LINC Budapest trip—actually what I could come up with were far more that five words. “Breathtaking”, I would say, was the first impression when I reckon in my mind’s eye. The beautiful views of the city reminded me some incredible throwbacks and imagination.
People here in Hungary, mostly, were far more different from I had known in America or Asia. Robust, stiff, and always proud of their nationality. The characteristics could easily found in other Central European countries as well because of centuries of wars and turmoil by communism dictatorship. However, it gratified me to see lots of historic buildings survived and still glittered in the sun.
