A View From Abroad

I took this picture of the Hungarian Parliament in Budapest just after Thankgiving on my Fall Vacation. It reminds me that Hungary became a Communist country through the ballot box. Of course, the Communists made everybody's life miserable in their usual fashion, and the citizens had a devil of a time restoring freedom. You can still see bullet holes in the buildings, and the effects of poverty that a nation undergoes when it turns its face from Capitalism.
