Duna TV, Szechenyi Baths

The temperature has been sweltering in Budapest, so it’s only fitting that I returned to the baths to cool off with the locals.  The Turks aren’t generally well regarded here, what with trying to take over the empire and all, but fortunately they did stick around to create all sorts of fabulous bathing areas right in the middle of the city.  Hooray!  These days the baths offer many different pools, all with their own temperature, so you can find one just right for you.  There are indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy, a sauna, steam rooms, mineral baths, and even special cabins for massages and such. 

My favorite part of Szechenyi is the circular area inside one of the outside pools where the jets take you around and around in circles and quite some speed.  It’s a little tricky to get in and out of this circle area because the jets are strong and there are lots of people around, but still, it’s such fun once you get moving along with the current.

We also visited the Duna TV station.  I was on TV!  Okay, so the TV wasn’t broadcasting, but it was still fun to pretend I was an anchorwoman  I looked right at the teleprompter and “UFO’s” on the camera like a pro!  Maybe one day…
