I’ve stopped back at the hotel to upload some pictures and drop off a couple actual physical (as opposed to digital) things before heading out to Tandem, a cafe that apparently is very big with bloggers. Not something I can possibly pass up.
The conference is really interesting. I’m going to have my hands full living up to the standard of the best speakers.

I walked along the Danube, back to the hotel, and took another bunch of pictures. By staying off Vaci utca, the main tourist pedestrian avenue, I managed to cut down the number of times I was propositioned to one.
So essentially I’ve spent the day talking to philosophers, scientists, and prostitutes. Budapest is exactly how I imagined it would be.
