The venue is the basement of Café Bella on the Buda side. We take the Number 47 street car to the stop right in front of the café, arriving 15 minutes early. Levi, the organizer of the experience, greets us and explains that the venue is not yet open, but we are invited to sit and perhaps have a beverage in the café. Another couple arrives and is told the the same. We invite them to join us. We do introductions all-around and learn that Conor and Jenny are the names of our new acquaintances.
Soon Levi informs us that the venue is ready and the four of us move to the basement. The room is an experience in itself - with brick walls and a bricked arched ceiling. We chat with Conor and Jenny before the band begins and during their break. We learn that they are originally from Ireland, move to Australia (last living in Tasmania), then moved to France near Lyon where they are restoring an old farmhouse. They are well-traveled and a delight.
After the concert we make plans to meet Conor and Jenny for lunch the next day. William and I make our way to the middle the street and the stop for the street car. A yellow car is arriving and we jump on. The car is supposed to go right, across the bridge, but instead it runs north along the Buda riverside. Oh Oh - we caught the wrong street car!
We agree that if the street car does not turn right to go across the next bridge we will get off as soon as we can after the bridge. Yup, that's what we have to do. William is able to use public wi-fi to show us the stop for the street car across the bridge is only a block away. That street car takes us to within four blocks of our apartment. A somewhat adventurous end to an excellent evening.
