Burda Score – Times Two

September 28th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m in Hungary right now — yeah, I’m surprised, too — and guess what I found at a gas station on the day I arrived:

Yes, at a GAS STATION!  I can hardly find Burda Style in the United States, but they’re sitting around at gas stations in Budapest.

And the price?  Less than $4.50 USD apiece.  Eat your hearts out, poor deprived North Americans.  (Don’t worry, I’ll be crying next  month.)

That was Sunday  night.  Today (it’s Tuesday here), I found the October issue at a news stand near the gas station:

Of course, the instructions are all in Hungarian, but given the quality of Burda’s directions, I don’t count that as any kind of disadvantage.  I’m tap dancing here, people!  Budapest is wonderful, and this was frosting on the cake.  Or, rather, frosting on the torte.

      So much fun, Shams, that neither one of us wanted to come home! We’ve never just RELAXED on a trip before. It was a strange and weird experience!

    I’m 3X jealous….for the two magazines and for being in Budapest! Sounds like a successful trip so far.

      It was a fabulous trip, jane S! Posts to follow, once I’m feeling human again after all that time in flying tubes.
