Budapest. Buda fest. Buda best. It was pretty damn cool. Hot and humid as hell with occasional thunderstorms. Cool buildings, cheap prices, pretty parks, amazing turkish baths. My hostel was awesome, too. Very welcoming. I could go on, and on, so I'll just say this:
Budapest is like an older, beautiful woman who has fallen on hard times in her old age, like Brooke Astor. The bones of beauty and ncie clothes are still there, but the clothes are a little worse for wear, and her brow liner and lipstick are a little too dark. She used to be beautiful, but now is on the verge of garish. That is Budapest.
