|When my kids and I first moved into our Brooklyn |
apartment, I gave them the master bedroom to share
and took a much smaller room. They've now
moved out and I've moved into the master—but I love
this cozy, quiet room and still sleep here
sometimes. It's especially nice in summer to wake
up to a cool breeze coming in through the wide-open window.

|I'm pretty sure I used "opera" for O in the |
last round. But that was the Metropolitan Opera
in NYC. This is the Hungarian State Opera House,
in Budapest. This extravaganza of gilt and
red velvet was completed in 1884.

|I spotted the aftermath of a little Paris|
pick-me-up. Naturally, the waiter was in no
hurry to clear things away and pick up
the check—these folks could have occupied
that table until closing time, I bet.

|On a sunny Sunday in September, |
what could be more fun than
going to the Jardin du Luxembourg
with your papa and sailing your
boat in the pond?

|It's almost rush hour at the Nyugati|
(i.e., Western) Railway Terminal in Budapest.
This beautiful structure was built in the 1870s
by Gustave Eiffel's company—and Eiffel's
hand is evident here, I think (more than
a decade before he built his famous tower).

|I liked the expression on these ladies'|
faces just as much as I liked the
ones on the people in the ad above them.
So I tried to be sneaky with my phone in the
Budapest metro—however, I don't think
I fooled the woman on the right.

|One morning recently, this was my view|
of the Manhattan Bridge and the sky over the city
(from the Brooklyn Bridge). And, I swear,
this photo is entirely un-edited!
