Unlikely Friends in Budapest

More than any other city I visited on my Eurotrip, Budapest had the most emotive, active and ubiquitous statue scene. Far from the stoic statues of the Viennese parks, or the timeless statues of Paris’ museums, Budapest’s statues were everywhere and very original in inspiration and execution. I took it upon myself to befriend each one I came across, and it wasn’t difficult, as each statue gave off a strong, distinct impression that was quite easy to mimic.

Me, flirting with Imre Kálmán, who is sitting in front of and gazing lovingly upon the opera house that put up much of his work.
