Heather - Wednesday 28 Oct 2009. I do think the only way to describe the Budapest is grand, splendid etc and to wax lyrical. Not to put you any further to sleep however, the South Africans ladies shopped for shoes and handbags. I think I’ve been to every shoe and handbag shop in the city. There are only one or two sizes of shoes available in the shops. A left over from communism?
There were also furs and wraps and all sorts of winter items that only mother would wear. The rest of us would die of heat exhaustion in the winter.
