"People Watching in Budapest" Local Life Tip by budapest8
Local Life, Budapest: 43 reviews and 80 photos
I have lived
in Budapest for 10 years
soon and the first thing I did was
when I arrived by train at the Keleti Railway
Station was to watch the coming’s and goings that
hot Summers day in the station. It was a good place to get a
sort of vibe on the city and the Magyars. Stations always seem to show
the best and worst of the cities they serve. On the train I was approached by
at least 4 different people representing various hostel companies with their flyers and eager to please selling pitch I quickly gathered as the train was fast approaching Budapest that I was a commodity! I had seen it in India at Delhi airport ten years before but not
on the trains, people coming into the private sanctuary of your compartment.
I had a choice of 30+ places to stay in with free transport from the station.
They all want to transport me somewhere, sign me in, slam-dunk,
BOOM, next please! So I kept smiling and listened and looked
but in my mind backed up and thought, YES I'm going to
eventually end up staying somewhere but let the
best salesman/woman win.!!
