The city is full of professional people:
Poor people who live on recycling:
|This is not my husband. He would not be caught dead in those jeans or those shoes!.|
If we had more time in the remnants of our lives and more money in our bank account and fewer places in the world to still visit we would go back to Budapest for a week and just see it all more closely and eat more of the fabulous food and watch people more. The strength and patriotism of these people is reflected so well in what they have accomplished after the devastation of recent wars and the evolution following past ancient wars. First there were the Celts, followed by the Romans, then the Hungarians which were pillaged by the Mongols, followed by 150 years of Ottoman rule eventually to become a capital of the Austro-Hungarian empire (which was no small empire) which then dissolved after WWI and attack by Germany and then Russian rule. Heroes' Square in Budapest gives just a small clue with statues of various Hungarian leaders across this history.
So much city and so little time!
