In 1995, I wrote in my journal, “Budapesters love dogs. They don’t pick up after them.” This has not changed. In other respects,¬†though, Budapest has been tarted up beyond recognition. And without becoming a tourist theme park like Prague. It’s beautiful, walkable, full of little surprises.

This week’s holiday is Bastille Day, which was apparently celebrated
with a street fair in Budapest, though I was swimming at the Gellért
Baths that night and missed it.
