Pretending you understood something can be dangerous

When somebody warns you there are sea urchins in the water.

On the up side, I’ll forget the name of those nasty animals, that’s for sure.

  • Me: There's one at the next tram stop.
  • Me thinking: why, why, why would you go to a Starbucks while there are thousands of amazing local coffee places in Budapest?

Belgian stores

Things you rediscover when you are back home:

Stores are not open on Sunday.

Markets are not cheaper than supermarkets
