Weekly Photo Challenge: (Budapest) On the Move

Budapest is, of course, not as busy as New York City or Hong Kong where I am based; but nevertheless, the city center can be quite busy with  everything – people, private cars, boats, trams always seem to be on the move.

The Danube flowing across the city center can be quite busy too.DSCF0242

Here is a view of the Parliament viewing from a boat, this shows the more tranquil side as I was trying to remove any visual distraction from passing boats.CIMG3414

While waiting for boats to pass, I also noticed an amphibian tour bus, moving along in front of the parliament. You can also see  people walking on the riverside footpath.DSCF0249

The river can be quite busy with boats / ships moving up and down the river.DSCF0244

We took the tram in the city. It was one of those yellow color trains running on electricity. The color reminds me of the tram I rode in Lisbon, squeezing tightly between buildings in the old city.DSCF0185

Squeezing between the tram line and the river Danube are roads which could be jam packed with private cars.DSCF0058

You can see trams at a higher level and private cars running or stalled in the lower level road.DSCF0095

We did not miss the opportunity of riding on the bus. The public bus is not a rigid long vehicle but allow rotation in the middle as the long vehicle negotiate through winding roads.

I suppose these are the means which keep the city moving!
