Budapest & Vienna

Well, I'm finally back after ten very short days in Budapest and Vienna. I'll be doing a few posts on my favorite buildings, sights, and restaurants throughout these two amazing cities. 

One of my favorite architectural details, a domed ceiling from the exterior of the Budapest Opera House. I love the simplicity of the black, white, and gold. 

Much more to come!


  1. Thank you for your photograph of the dome. The center image is a figure of eros (cupid) holding a flowering thyrsus and a palm of victory. Does love conquer all. Is this an iconic commentary on opera? Images are wiser than our questions. David Novak

  2. Hello William:
    How wonderful that you have just spent time in our adopted home of Budapest. We look forward to reading about your experiences there.

    And, the Opera House. We are often to be found there as it is still relatively inexpensive and rather good.

  3. If you do send holiday cards-this is it! pgt
