weekend

Life On the Street

puccstiyagiAn Indian man cooking outside in the middle of November. Has he been locked out from his apartment? Why did he leave the TV on? Was he carrying a hot plate in his pocket? How big are his pockets?

puccsoutsideThe answer is, just another opening at Puccs with the artist Tiyagi making mulled wine. It was a good idea in the cold. For those who drink mulled wine that is.

keklolemonI don’t drink mulled wine and had to go straight to the after party at Kék Ló and drink real wine. Mainly because it was cold. Also because it was Friday.

Life is Beautiful

eva-and-ivanaAlmost bedtime for me so let’s see what happened on Friday might when I could stay awake a little longer. I started the evening at Muszi with an art opening by these two fine Slovakian artists, trying out the comfy armchairs, Eva and Ivana. The names are of the artists of course.

musziThe place was still quiet and chairs empty which made up for a good night of testing different ones. For those inclined.

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.

IMG_3505Imre is the owner and to my knowledge only person working behind the bar and he does it very well. With wine, pálinka, sausages, a smile, and a Canadian accent.

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.

Where the River Bends

révLast weekend I was invited to a wedding ceremony in Kisoroszi the tip of Szentendre island up by the Danube bend. We took this ferry, before this we were on a tram, a local train, and a bus. Perfect trip for those who like to try out as many means of transport possible in a day.

good byeOn the Friday we said good bye to Mark’s dog Jocsó. He’s now swimming down the Danube after a stick. Forever. I cried.

fireThe night ended by the fire place with some drinks and BBQ. Around 11 it was time to try and find our little pension walking through the darkness. At this point I wasn’t so happy about not camping. Until I was in my comfortable bed that is. The wedding ceremony gets a blog post on its own.

Balaton Fauna

balaton toys Killer whales and lobsters down at Balaton, new and welcomed change to the lake fauna. What I really wanted to say is I’ve been busy with visitors and this is all I have time to show you right now. This picture’s got a lot of animals and should keep you busy/happy for at least a minute. If you’re bored I mean.
