Reliving family history in Budapest



Since our arrival in Budapest, I have been whipping out and showing to many folks here -a very old photo of my great grandmother who lived in Budapest before immigrating to U.S.  I got some interesting info from local Hungarians about the photo- for instance, the address inscribed on the photo!  Well, today, Mira and I walked past the address and I stopped to take a few shots! It was so thrilling to be in the same place that my great grandmother had walked in the 1800's!! That's HISTORY!!!
