While sightseeing around the city of Budapest on a tourist bus, I was so engrossed in taking photographs that I didn’t notice we had reached our destination. The passengers had all piled off, my sisters among them, before I realized I was the only one left on the bus. I rushed down the stairs to join my family on the street,

where they were laughing at the images on the side of the bus and trying to figure out which one each of our heads would have been attached to. It was January and snowing, so the scantily clad drawings looked even more amusing.

When I looked back over my photos that evening, I had a fair idea which cartoon body had been displayed under my eager face as I frantically took shot after shot of the many historic buildings that grace the streets of Budapest.

    • Aha, I was wondering who would be first to ask that. Judging from where I was sitting, I think I’m in the Elvis, unbuttoned-to-the-navel outfit, in front of the ‘yellow’ person. Thank goodness I wasn’t wearing the bikini, it was freezing. 😉
