Budapest, Margitsziget – part 1

Some more photos of Margitsziget. As I found out, the only weather my camera seems to like and is willing to cooperate with, is radiant sunshine. Under other circumstances it creates an atmosphere that makes you feel like considering suicide on a rainy day in mid-November. I guess I need to move to the Kalahari Desert to be able to make some decent photos.

Today I visited Margitsziget, one of the islands of the Danube. Under its trees ninety percent of the Hungarian literature was born. The rest of it was written in Paris, because we always intended to be international, even if we never quite managed it. We Hungarians are proud of our unique language, of our rare quality literature (even if its beauty will never be fully appreciated in the cruel non-Hungarian speaking world), of our wines and of our thousand and one hundred years of – mostly self-generated – suffering. We even build our politics on the remembrance of this everlasting pain of ours. Me personally think it is a big, big mistake.
