Quite enough for a couple of oldsters. This was our 10th European trip.

Observations: is there anything grander than the Budapest parliament building? Will that astronomical clock in Prague ever stop running? What will the newly purchsed Schindler's factory become as a tourst site?
Are Hungary and Czech Republic really better off under the free market?
