Boswell in Budapest

In Mark Griffith I might have discovered my Boswell. Except that he lives in Budapest.

I didn't have time to blog about my very brief visit to Budapest but Mark did:

December 20th; Saturday. More time with Paul from Romania having leisurely coffees before his flight, discussing ambition, destiny, love & the value of history. On the subject of Portuguese dictator Salazar, he says "He personally intervened to make sure Coca Cola would not be allowed to sell their disgusting drink in Portugal. He truly was the father of his people." At another moment, in between anecdotes about men on trial for having close friendships with their dogs, he wisely avers that "Assassination is the sincerest form of flattery."
