WITW Budapest

Rich and Pam Reid of Defiance recently returned from a Viking river cruise to five eastern European countries. They followed the Danube, starting in Romania and visited Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia and Hungary. In each country they had a chance to talk to locals about what life was like under Communism, the difficult times that followed the opening of the Iron Curtain, and the hope that they see today. Pam was especially excited to experience an evening touring Budapest, Hungary, in two Trabants — cars produced in the former East Germany, one in 1963 and the other in 1989. The Crescent-News accompanied the Reids on the ride.
