Hungary

I studied at the University of Budapest in the IMM2001 MBA program in 2001-02. I have been there many times on business.

Good friends

One of the nicest things about travelling is meeting people. It is so nice to be invited into their homes to meet their families, and to break bread and drink wine together.

On this particular ocassion, Kristine cooked enough food for a dozen guests, and we were only five, including the kids. Needless to say, I was embarassed not to be able to eat more than I did, but I am looking forward to going back!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:inexpensive, charming city, good restaurants
  • Cons:hustlers, pimps, prostitutes, scams
  • In a nutshell:watch your wallet and never accept an invite into a restaurant or bar by an attractive young girl
