Just across the Border

Typical house front in Sopron, Hungary

Poor one-eyed kitty

Little rascal Pascal

Colorful facade

Static moment

So many words to say "No parking"?!

Last weekend we took a trip to Sopron, which is a little Hungarian town near the Austrian border less than an hour away by car. The little streets and even the main plaza with the fire watch tower and goat church were deserted on this Sunday morning. Over all, the town had a flair that reminded me a bit of Italy, however a somewhat run-down version of it. One acquaintance we made in the main square was a one-eyed cat. I was wondering what had happened to her. Despite her injury she was very sweet and trusting. While the rest of the family petted the cat for quite a long time, I took a short walk and discovered a few sights of surprising charm. Sopron will be worth another visit in the summertime!
