Prague & Budapest Memories - 1

It’s been about 3 years since I spent 7 days without my laptop. I took it to Barcelona, to Egypt, to Amsterdam and to Cologne. But this time I decided to switch my mind off completely. Consequently, I arrived at Budapest in a state of total freedom from structured thought. I spent the next 7 days following instructions and directions provided either by Topu or by Karuna or by both of them. Without disquiet, without petulance or rebellion.

As I write this, Budapest is pulsating with the fury of its people who have stumbled upon that truth known to most capitalists, communists, democratic and autocratic countries. Governments lie. Nonetheless, all this could have been a million miles away as we wandered through the city. (how many miles do you have to be to be even one second away in time?
