Finally, a picture of the Central Market Hall in Budapest. Theoretically in the Pest side of the city, This picture was taken just as we arrived. Not many people as you can see in the picture, so it made the visit a pleasant one. I hate jostling elbows with people. The first floor is where the souvenirs are sold. And the prices are cheaper than the shops at Vaci Street. So it's well worth the long walk here for a shopping spree. They accept Euros but not all shops. And you need to be good at maths cos only a few shops show their prices in Euros. What I liked especially was the lack of shop keepers breathing down your neck re-arranging everything you touch. ( Hate that!). The downside of this lack of presence is....if you're in a hurry to buy....you'll be left standing for a bit while the owner comes to your rescue from some other part of the shop.
The name of this blog was shamelessly pinched from that wonderful programme starring Joanne Lumley and Jeniffer Saunders. Thank you for dropping by...
Most of the pictures are my own. When I can remember ( which is only lately) I credit the folks whose pictures I blog. Apologies to the owners of earlier pictures used in this blog. Back in the dark ages, I wasn't as tech-savvy as now.

God if you can't make me thin, at least make my friends fat.
