a place in the world


Grand Market Hall, Budapest

The ground floor sells mostly produce and a variety of foodstuff– paprika, fruit, Hungarian sausages, and other cured meats. The second floor offers souvenirs, cafes and food stations. I had purchased a small can of foie gras (goose liver pâté) thinking it was only 1000 HUF, only to discover that it actually costs four times as much (that’s roughly $23). I am still not used to the way the Europeans write the number 4.
