Budapest 1991


April 1991, Budapest

One sign of the times in Budapest was the dismantling of signs of the old regime. In this case it was done via the street signs, reverting to the pre-communist names (I suppose).

Another typical sign of the times was the sale of Soviet paraphernalia. Though by this time there was already an industry producing fake stuff, so you couldn't always be sure it was real.

Actually, if you look really hard in the right hand binocular, you can see me - dressed in my travel gear: leather jacket, jeans and walking boots.

The 15-minute blog post.
I like to blog, but I can't afford to spend a lot of time on it. Solution: limit myself to 15 minutes per post.
One link, one picture maximum [oops, not always then!].
