On the ongoing expedition, the Moonhouse has reached Hungary. Carl Nordlund brings the house to the Chain Bridge in Budapest. The Bridge was the first permanent bridge across the Danube and was considered an engineering wonder when it was completed in 1849. Wikipedia informs us that ”It has asserted an enormous significance in the country’s economic, social and cultural life, much as the Brooklyn Bridge has in New York and United States of America.”

The Moonhouse and the Chain Bridge have much in common as engineering wonder and significance to civilisation.
