VIII District (part I)
Agi's dog walker on Matyas Square - he is 75 - unbelievable!
No idea what is for sale here here!
The glory of electricity.
Not in these shoes either .... ( for Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch whose beautiful book of poems 'Not in These Shoes' has been shortlisted for the Wales book of the year prize)
Budapest has 24 separate districts. The VIIIth lies close to the centre of the city and depending upon your point of view is either the Roma getto or 'up and coming' - ripe for social regeneration.
The old housing stock is delapidated and slowly being replaced by new high rises.
