Budapest – City of Dreams

July 21st, 2008

Budapest

Once you visit Budapest you will want to visit this city again and again. The city is split into 2 parts Buda and Pest and you can easily spend and entire week there.

Sightseeing – At Pest I will recommend to visit parliament building, to take yellow metro line to Hosok tere ( Heros square , Zoo and Szesany Spa center are few minutes walk away )

Buda side has a lot of history and museums . You can spend one day at Buda Hills, visiting Fisherman bastion and Matias Church.

Other attractions in the city: Margit islande located on danube river , Vaci Utca famous walking street of the city with many shops and restaurants.

Restaurants : I will recommend Lugash –located in the city centre opposite Basilica , the place with best Goulash for sure.

For meat lovers there is a paradise place called Sir Lancelot (2 min away from Nyugati metro station ), except great atmosphere and design you really get nice piece of beef for reasonable rate.

Shopping ( famous female hobby ) - don’t waste your time and money on Vaci Utca, take a metro to Nyugati station and spend your day at Westend shopping centre. If its still not enough take another 4 metro stops and visit Duna Plaza – biggest mall of the city ( credit card companies will be proud of you )

Hotels – I will recommend Hilton WestEnd, as of location, shopping, atmosphere and of course SERVICE, something that they are specialized in.

Best regards,

Greg

Cleveland Rocks!!!!

July 18th, 2008

Welcome to Cleveland!!!

My name is Ligy E. Alarcon, I am one of the new Product Development Managers. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio brought me to appreciate this very industrial city! There are many great attributes to Cleveland but I want to highlight one of my many favorites. Being a lover of rock and roll it fits perfect to talk about one of the most visited museums in Cleveland and also worldwide,The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is the nonprofit organization that exists to educate visitors, fans and scholars from around the world about the history and continuing significance of rock and roll music. It carries on through its operation of a world-class museum that collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets this art form and through its library of rock lavish information. If you ever have the opportunity to visit Cleveland, you will feel at home, I certainly do…Cleveland is a great city, a place of connections - an evolving community, vibrant and viable, where we can all belong.

Today is a very special day…why because..Today in Rock and Roll History…….
