Budapest, Hungary

My friend is currently a doctorial candidate in cultural anthropology. He currently lives in a 1 room efficiency apartment that goes for about $650 American per month. There is an oven and kitchen sink by the doorway and of course, a bathroom. The view from outside is right on the Danube river with the Buda castle in the backroom. Quite a view.His couch comes out into a pullout bed and there is plenty of cabinet space. For entertainment purposes, there is a TV as well. There is also a nice sized balcony that you can view the sites mentioned before.
