The Monkey scores a technical visit to Hungary, and feels lame about it.
The Monkey very technically set foot in Hungary while en route from Bulgaria to the United States in 2002. He spent several hours exploring the terminal at Budapest Airport, but didn’t have quite enough time to venture beyond its walls. He also bumped into the Bulgarian kaval (flute) player, Teodossi Spassov, and chatted with him for a bit.
In this photo, you can just make out the airport’s rather strange control tower on stilts.
The Monkey is fully aware that airport-only visits are lame. Some day the Monkey will return to Hungary—and he’ll be sure to leave the airport!
