'Pest peculiarities

Monday, May 12, 2014

There are healthy helpings of irreverence all over Budapest. Amid grandiose government structures and treasure-laden museums, you find things like a Michael Jackson memorial tree. And a cafe in the back of an old VW van. In our last Budapest post, we share a few quirky bits found 'round the city. 

One thing we DIDN'T get a photo of was the multitude of people strewn on blankets all over public park space come sunset. One particular city square was packed tighter than a Brazilian beach during a heatwave. People would just sit for hours, in a big blanket-people quilt, elbow-to-elbow with strangers, eating picnic food, chatting and drinking wine straight from the bottle. It was weirdly wonderful. 

If only we'd had more than a couple of days to uncover additional oddities...  

We left our mark on a table in a kert.

A table for two in a VW. (The sister cafe is on the left.)

MJ forever.

My favorite: A braille "sightseeing" vista along the riverside
