In an email today, after my enquiry as to now to reach my appointment for Saturday lunch:
" I am right in thinking I have to go from Moszkva Tér over Margit Bridge and then walk a short way to the left?"
I received the answer:
I wonder how many times I will have to be reminded once I get to Budapest that names have been changed yet again. I had to remember the changes once already, shortly after I arrived in Hungary for the first time in 1989. That time no sooner had I learnt all those terribly long foreign street names than they all changed.
I look forward with excitment to my visit but also with a fear that in the past three years so much will have changed beyond recognition, not only in name.
