a photo an hour, approximately, yesterday

by ada

6 am:

Getting up, drinking my morning coffee, reading my feeds (yes, it contains a lot of cat gifs) and listening to The Cat complaining about how she had a terrible night. She actually spent it with sleeping on her electric heating pillow under her 100% woolen blanket, without waking up even one single time, but from the complaining and moaning she does every morning you would think she fought dragons all night long to save the ungrateful world.


7 am: Early morning commute. The hate-part of the day.


8 am – 1 pm:

Staring at the screen of the anaesthetic machine and trying to keep up with all the new information.

Also, for obvious reasons I can’t offer you a photo of neither the OR nor the hospital, so here is the basement where we change. Hungarian Health Care System in all its glory.


1 pm:

Having lunch in the park. It’s not quite the right weather for it yet but I was craving the sun so much that even the cold wind couldn’t hold me back.


2 pm:

Crossing the city.




3 pm:

Buying groceries…


…and receiving physiotherapy treatment for my back.


4 pm:

On my way to the library.




5 – 7 pm:

Having coffee with my friend Ancsangyalka at the cafeteria of the library. Usually it’s only one coffee and a lot of studying, but lately we are both very tired, stressed out and somewhat frustrated, so we discussed our favourite topic, the folly of the human race, very thoroughly this time (instead of studying, obviously).




7 – 9 pm:

Checking out the Budapest Fish Festival.




9 pm:

On my way home. So much nicer than in the morning, isn’t it?


10 pm:

Evening routine: showering, drinking bone broth, checking mails and offering emotional support to The Cat after her terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, which involved sleeping, sleeping, eating and some more sleeping. Hard is a cat’s life, y’all.

music of the week – Republic: Kék és narancssárga

by ada

I almost never listen to any other music than Baroque, I guess it’s just something of an occupational disease with me, but my friend Ancsangyalka sent me this video as additional info to yesterday’s blue and orange post. It’s Kék és narancssárga (Blue and orange) from the Hungarian band Republic. So let’s get acquainted with the popular rock music style of the post-revolutionary Hungary of the 1990’s :o)

For today we planned to take some photos with Ancsangyalka in the city but it was so freezingly cold that we had to give up after forty minutes, because even in gloves we couldn’t move our fingers anymore. They were like frozen sticks of wood, not the least flexible. The art of pushing the tiny button on my camera with gloves on is something I never really managed to master. So we ended up drinking rum-flavoured hot chocolate in a bookshop cafe.

Another walk in Vár, this time with Ancsangyalka. I’m kind of obsessed with this district lately. If I win the lotto, I will move there and feel like I’m part of our history but not our politics.

Another coffee with Ancsangyalka, in another library. I’m experimenting with scaling my pictures, by the way.
