Budapest

99 Luftballoons and some Wine on Top of That

balloonsI’m just going to pretend it wasn’t a month ago I posted anything here. Please do the same. So let’s see what I did last Friday. Took pictures of balloons in the dark for example.

IMG_3497The reason for the balloons was an open night at all the community gardens in Budapest. Since I have a little plot together with some friends I visited my own garden. Not that I can’t go there any other time, only other times there aren’t a lot of people there and this was the first time it was decorated and full of sweets my fellow gardeners brought.

cintanyerosWhen we had enough of the dark garden we headed over to a nice little place up the street.

outsideHere you can see 3 of us, plus 1 person behind the camera and one behind Kate in the striped shirt. All in all it was 5 of us. In case you wonder.

Name Dropping

szimplaHere I am with my sister Camilla, her boyfriend Alex, and Nicole at Szimpla kert having a drink. Reading the names of people who probably had more than one drink before they started writing on the walls.

bulletBullet had a drink too.

fuck off it's FridayNow it’s Friday and time to fuck off on new adventures.

What are you doing this weekend?

I’m going to a place not so far away and a ferry is involved. If the ferry takes me back home again I promise to post some pictures. If not I’m sorry to give you the finger as my last picture. (Of course it wont be the last)

Painters Palace

flowerBudapest’s a great place for those who like to hang around in artsy places. Now there’s one more to add to your list, The Painters Palace on Bródy Sándor.  Here are some pictures from the opening last Saturday. Jesse above is one of the founders. If you’re a founder you get flowers.

Dirty Deeds

tulipsTo be honest I’m not really known as someone who likes bugs and worms and that is because I don’t. My last close encounter with a worm/big ass maggot occurred the other day. Strawberries were involved, maggot was very much involved in the strawberries. However you like to put it, I was put off and am not sure I can eat strawberries again. What I wanted to say with this is that I now together with some friends have a little plot of land, and that also involves strawberries.

watering cansCans to make sure worms don’t get dehydrated.

Despite dirt and worms it’s all happy faces in the garden.
