This week I went for the first time to Ors Vezér tere which is at the end of the red metro line (aka line 2). I’ve lived in Budapest for over a year and I’m ashamed that this week was the first time I had been to this particular location. For many, it’s a major transit stop when commuting into the city. IKEA is also close by. There is also a massive shopping mall here. Its definitely on my list of things to do before I leave. Must explore this area more!
I was here on Monday evening to go to my Hungarian teacher’s house. She was making food for her students. She lives on the outskirts of Budapest. By public transit it took almost an hour to get there, but by car it was only about 20 minutes to get to my house. In many ways, Budapest is a small city. Its fairly easy to get from point A to point B, but only if you have a car. Public transport is fairly good – especially if you are in the city center. Much better than in Vancouver for sure.
