From the name of the group, I wonder if extraordinary is referred to travellers or places. :)

I was browsing through my photostream and looking at what places would be worth calling extraordinary. Some of them.

The twirling skirt hems. Endless folk & gypsy dances in the traditional dance houses. Live jazz in underground bars. Makeshift concert clubs in dilapidated houses (Really!). Buildings and bridges oozing old world charm. Cycling tracks to get around the city. The Danube for the evenings. The statue park with looming statues from the communist era. Western classical concerts in limestone caves (yes! 3-4 deg centigrade...in July) not far from the city. Paprikas. Somloi Galushka. Turkish baths & hot springs. History: Fascinating and bloody in equal measure. The fun-loving youth of the city. The super-friendly people !

That is BUDAPEST for you.
(Now if anyone is planning to go there, please be informed that Lavanya guide is ready with her bags packed and all and waiting :-p)

For a true feel of walking in the clouds and getting literally drenched in the process -- to hear thunders but see nothing only to realise a while later that you're about to bump into a truck crawling towards you -- to hold an umbrella pointed towards the ground to save your trousers from getting excessively wet yet you continue enjoying the mild-sunrays kissing your forehead - you must visit Cherapunjee !! Alas- this was way too back - in the early 90's when I didn't have the option to etch anything in silver halide - however, it's there etched forever in my mind :-)
