J-n-O’s B-o-B

| July 17, 2009 9:37 am

As we prepare to depart Budapest (NEWSFLASH for those of you not in the know – details to come), we’re finally publishing our long-overdue list of Budapest favorites that made our almost two-year stint here fun, exciting, unique and/or memorable (in a good way). Along with our pictures of life here, we hope that this collection will trigger good memories for us and, ideally, serve as a decent “to do” list for tourists for centuries to come.

Luckily, you can sample pretty much the entire list in 4-5 days (even 3 if you really run around), which means we’ve overstayed in Budapest for 626 days and counting… so without further ado, we give you (in order of importance) Juan-n-Ognen’s Best-of-Budapest:

In our over one year in Budapest, the one thing that has consistently impressed us has been the local sense for decor. During our house-hunting we saw over 80 flats – most of them over a century old but tastefully renovated to combine a great mixture of classic and contemporary. They really are pleasant to look at, even if they do fall apart rather quickly thanks to unfortunately shoddy materials and craftsmanship. Similarly, although the food often leaves a lot to be desired, the interior design of the vast majority of Budapest’s restaurants is quite impressive. From the cheapest to the classiest, local eatieries really take pride in their appearance and, on the average, far outshine any other city we’ve visited anywhere.  Same goes for local clubs and other nightlife spots, which tend to display an unusually creative flare with their use of space and party planning. We’ve even met several expats who are here taking interior design classes and it seems like the perfect place to learn.

Unfortunately, Budapest’s sense for interior design is apparently limited to interior design. We’ve taken some strolls through the various Christmas markets and “decorated” streets to soak in the holiday atmosphere the last few weekends and were bitterly disappointed. We are usually staunch defenders of Budapest against unfavorable comparisons to Vienna and Prague and we generally think it is a much better city than the other two, but we can’t do that in this case. The holiday decorations really were far superior in Austria this year (see our daytrip to Vienna pictures).

But the worst of all were Budapest’s Christmas trees – bad cuts, bad heights, bad branches, bad decorations, bad lights, bad nativity scenes, just generally unbelievably bad!!!

We’re not sure why this is and we don’t remember the holiday decor being bad last year, so maybe it has something to do with Hungary in general being bankrupt or subject to a series of crippling strikes recently that prevented the locals from decorating in style.

Whatever it is, juan-n-ognen.org is proud to present the following slide-show of this year’s Budapest Christmas trees – it is guaranteed to make you proud of whatever plant/object you’re putting your presents under this year.

Sweet Home Oaklabama

| October 16, 2008 9:39 am

A few months ago, Ognen’s firm hired another young American lawyer – straight from the (possibly) great state of Oklahoma. Eager to make a positive impression on the only young American we could potentially make friends with here, we all went out to the Rudas Baths – Budapest’s finest. Not willing to attempt to make a meaningful connection, especially seeing as we were all in swimsuits and had not yet disclosed any potential Blue State – Red State unpleasantries, we settled for inane small talk and somewhere in the middle of it all Juan asked something along the lines of “What town in Oklabama are you from?

Following the dishing out of the unavoidable, insensitive and merciless ridicule, it soon became evident that Juan had inadvertently stumbled onto one of the greater public policy initiatives of our time, namely, the pressing need to merge Oklahoma, Alabama and everything in between (Arkansas, Louisiana – if it still exists after the next hurricane, Mississippi and Tennessee) into one.

Sparty! (our latest Budapest mission is accomplished)

| 1:02 pm

A few weeks ago we finally made to the long-anticipated Sparty that we’d heard so much about and previously missed out on. The normally relaxing Rudas Baths (our favorites in Budapest) were turned into a giant pool party from 10pm till 5am (but we admit we only lasted until 3): one giant swimming pool, one big thermal pool, four smaller thermal pools, 4 different music stages, spas, multiple bars and dance floors, “relaxation room,” massages, pool toys, beach balls, disco lights, laser shows, belly dancing, fire jugglers, synchronized swimming performance…. and a lot of happy people in swimming suits in the middle of a freezing February night in Cenral Europe. Need we say more?
