Last week, four journalists, one photographer and me, beeing in charge of this project, discovered Budapest on the ground, successfully hosted by our Budapest team. The first meeting between the participants and our hosts is in a restaurant in the city center: Who are the babelians from Budapest actually?
Three of us arrived together at the restaurant, we see a guy in the inside who is looking at us for a few seconds and then immediately joining us at the front door: “Yeah, you are from the team?” is he asking us. “Sure” are we nodding, and soon our photographer Gonzalo from Spain joins us – he has been quite sure that we are the babelians too.

It’s a way of life actually and we all share our passion about this unique magazine – how different we might be, whatever we are doing in our lives or how different our political views are.

Budapest_2 Here we are late at night in order to exchange our impressions and discussing life in Budapest with the local team members.
