Upon leaving Budapest we made our way to puzta famous for its fiery horses that don't take flight at the sound of a cracking whip. These horses could lie down and the riders sit and have a siesta on them. They also rode them while cracking a whip near there ear and the horse continued to move without even flinching. Those who know a bit about horses will find this amazing. We both got to ride on these horses bare back and certainly louise felt it the next 2 days. After a very country style Hungarian goulash we trundled off to wien (Vienna). Having both been to this city we found this visit to be better.

We did the normal sites and visits, but with our tour guide plus having visited the previous cities in eastern Europe we had a greater understanding of the impact the habsburgs, Nazis, and soviet rule had on this region. But the biggest highlight in Vienna was the concert by the Mozart symphony orchestra. This was a nite full of Mozart, strauss, and opera done Vienna style. There is no better way to see this sort of thing than in Vienna.

After our normal two day visit we now make our way to the last major city Prague.
