Where to begin with reflecting on Budapest?
I'll start on Kazinczy Utca, the street in Pest where i spent most of my stay. It's a narrow bending lane in the heart of Jewish Quarter of Erzsébetváros, the 7th District of the city. It is loaded with ghosts both living and dead, a thrum of bars and restaurants including Szimpla Kert -- the vast squat-like art bar and nightlife legend -- and a kind of low tension that vibrates like lightly radioactive particles in the air; a wavelength across centuries.
