Fat Policeman

Location: Budapest, Hungary
 
He stands along Budapest’s Zrínyi Street close to St. Stephen’s Basilica.

I confess I missed him on my first visit to Budapest. But last month, I finally met him.

He’s referred to as the Fat Policeman with a round belly.

In other countries, he’d symbolize a cop who indulges in corruption and abuse of authority for personal gain.

In Budapest, however, he represents a love for hearty Hungarian cuisine such as the goulash, which has become one of my favorites.

It’s said that rubbing his belly can bring good luck, especially in love. Small wonder that it has become shiny from all the rubbing from tourists and passers-by.

The cold weather didn’t stop Ryan from walking Sparky around the neighborhood for the last time.

A big promotion caused his dad to move the family to another state.

For a moment, Ryan and Sparky enjoyed watching early snowflakes fall softly on tree branches. Then, it was time to go.

“Dad, can I take Sparky with me?” he asked.

“Sorry, son, there’s no room in the van.”

“But, dad,” he protested with Sparky staring helplessly by his side.

“Don’t worry, I’ll pick him up along with the rest of the stuff later. In the meantime, he stays with your grandma.

Loch Ness

Location: Highland, Scotland
 
It was on a clear day when we took a short cruise on Loch Ness.

The lake is supposed to be inhabited by a prehistoric monster which remains as elusive as the Big Foot.

I stayed on top of the boat with a camera ready to shoot anything that looked suspicious in the waters to prove the skeptics wrong, but I was disappointed.

Nevertheless, the beauty and serenity of the place made up for it.
