Dinner on the Danube July 25, 2006

After a few hours of snapping photos this afternoon (I’ll put some of those up in the morning), I was delighted to run into blogger Mary Reid (less well known as the mayor of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames) and her husband and fellow Councillor Ian Reid. They were about to have dinner at our hotel’s Corso Restaurant which has an open-air terrace on the Danube, and they graciously invited me to join them.

Tonight was one of those spectacular summer nights to dine outdoors: warm, no bugs, no wind. And the scenery, including a stunning sunset, was quite memorable with the Buda Castle Royal Palace and the Chain Bridge (connecting Buda and Pest) lit up in the background. Plus, we met some familiar people, too: Fraser Henderson, Julia Glidden, Susie Ruston, Leslie Reynolds, Alan Winchcombe, and others. Click photos to enlarge.
