Today they have find an abandoned car with a dead body in it in Budapest. A piece of paper was placed to the window warning people not to open up the car as dangerous chemicals are in it. I guess the guy comitted suicide like this.:( The photo was taken by Mihádák Zoltán (MTI)
While in London the Pride March of the gay community is an event with a million people (among them the conservative mayor of London) in Budapest the Pride March is full of tension. I took this photo yesterday at the Oktogon where the police started to separate protesters from the marching community peventing any confrontation. The dark side of the moon….
Since there are a lot of foreigners on the Sziget Festival mostly from Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, Netherlands and UK they invited policemen from these countries. They serve the visitors on their own language in case of any problem. I guess its a good idea, makes people feel more secure. But to be honest their job is mostly to pose on photos with the lot of crazy guys and girls:) To see a Bobby in Budapest was unique to me and I also tried hard to approach him with my camera:)
This glass building is called “Police Palace” in Budapest. This is the headquarter of the Budapest Police Department and also the State Police Department is located here.
