Living in a News-less Culture
Budapest is a laid-back city, and Hungary even more so. The news stories are no different: not much to report. Whenever I peruse the Hungarian news, the stories are sometimes political, but most often not. More typical are articles about living in Budapest or a famous person's birthday. My favorite article last month was the five best places to buy kremes, a typical Hungarian dessert. These are today's headlines:
A little different than Kenya invading Somalia or America withdrawing from Iraq. But I like the calm atmosphere in my new city. It's peaceful. I think I'll be happy living in a news-less culture. For awhile, at least.
