2005_8_bucks2.jpg


The morning I awake in Budapest, the first day of three weeks in this city, comes news from the Old Neighborhood that shocks to its core: Starbucks has, as long feared and long forecast, arrived in the one-triple-zero-two. A movie set… or the real thing?

We’ve been fooled before. Many times before. But something about this just feels… true. If you need us, we’ll be off drowning ourselves in the Danube.
