Szechenyi Bridge

with one comment

October 2011

The Szechenyi (Chain) bridge is a chain suspension bridge across the Danube in Budapest. We arrived around 1am on a Saturday night and as we were walking up to the bridge, the lights on the city went out like somebody had just flicked a switch somewhere. Myself and NC Kapita walked up to the top of the chains after waiting for a lull in traffic.

Although I have a tendancy to get a little jelly-legged, I felt quite comfortable on top of the chain. Sat with legs akimbo, propped up against the supporting strut of the handrail, it was serene. After a few minutes we came down and hit the Metro.

Following the huge ethics debate that was entered into on 28days later following the Evening Standard article, it was nice to go through some flicks from the trip last month and just remind myself what it’s all about. Ultimately, we’ll all do what we wish and if people don’t like it, then it’s usually too late to change anything. The best thing to do is just carry on and if you fuck things up for yourself somehow, learn from it and move on. Space is space and it’s going to be there until somebody does something about it. There’s always a way.

In Budapest it was just a case of rocking up to something, waiting for the right time and just doing it. Just like the good old days.
