… Is the name of the town with the Burger King, Subway and movies in English. Lucky Hungarians!
While, usually, I deplore the globalisation of food (I’ll never complain about a non-dubbed movie), there is something innately comforting about the familiarity of these brands, after a very short flight of only one hour and a half. Previously Mr Moi and I have seen the need to fly alll the way to the UK for a good dose of ‘home’, which takes three and a half hours, involves a crappy airport (Heaf’row) and costs around $US600 each return.
Imagine our joy on traipsing through customs in Budapest nice and quick, then getting a taxi (with a meter!), driving into town past signs for Tesco supermarkets, and finally hitting the inner city, with its beautiful ye olde Europe architecture with the occasional Burger King and Subway oases thrown in.
Budapest is a great town! Photos soon, and an update on what LMM did next…
