Budapest Palaces & Peasants

Ive just come back from budapest and what a strange place it is. A city fiercley proud of its culture but with a flagrant disregard for its couture.

There is a theory that if you put people in elegant surroundings they will dress accordingly. This theory definitely appears to have passed by the inhabitants of Budapest! The city’s architecture is a beautiful example of (pre communist) Eastern European elegance. In fact budapest is known as the Paris of the east. However the people dress, like Stalinist peasants, the women are particularly style less with a nasty taste for garishly died red hair and cheap shoes. In summary great buildings lousy clothes!
