Barren Budapest 2020. Between February and April 2020, the capital city of Hungary was a startling site! While Hungarians have been faithfully observing the lock-down rules, we spent time walking around the city to gather photographs of this historical period. Who would have imagined an over-crowded Fisherman's Bastion in December  becoming void of people in March?

Hungary’s “state of emergency” criticized by both media pundits and leftist politicians still remains a subject to be apologized for. Because Hungary has handled the Corona virus emergency better than most countries in the world! As of mid August 2020, there are no new hospitalizations! One must admire Budapest’s resilience and it's disciplined citizens.
