Part 3 of Budapest Hungary

After a day of cute grocery stores museums and so many gluten free options,   I bought a bottle of wine with gold flecks in it and Klara made some amazing food  Her fabulous friend stoped by and brought her two Italian grey hounds. 
She then later introduced me to a card game, where you shout cacao and Macau once you have one card or none.  It is called Macau and you can learn about it here.  It took a while for me to understand how to play it, especially since as you can see above Hungarian cards are extremely beautiful but also completely different! I got so into playing it could have become a poker tournament!  I am so happy captured each suit of these little beauties because they are so intricate and speciall!
She then took me to a club that is in an old mall called Kaméleon
