Thanks for the memories

Another excellent piece from Yossef. Reading it brought back all sorts of memories of a similar trip to Budapest and Estergom I did on an ancient BMW R100RS in the summer of 1990, with a tent and sleeping bag lashed to the luggage rack. Eastern Europe had only been 'open' for a few months, and the Beemer attracted a lot of attention wherever I went. I also remember sitting in a cafe looking at, and trying to understand, that astronomical clock! In your picture, the time is somewhere between one and two pm: the sun marks the hours as it rotates clockwise on its ring, and it's in the second of the six pale blue segments which divide the time - unequally - between noon and sunset. There are no minutes shown, but as a compensation you get the phase of the moon (it's at the bottom of the dial).
