Weekly Photo Challenge: Cheeky

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Murren, Switzerland

Location: Murren, Switzerland
 
Murren is a small village town located 5,413 feet above sea level. it’s inaccessible by car. It took two aerial lifts to get there. From Lauterbrunnen Valley, we rode the cable car going to Gimmelwald and then switched over to another cable car to Murren.

I think Emily Dickinson will be happy to be here even if she doesn’t venture out. From the window of her hotel room, she’ll have a spectacular view of the village and surrounding alps to serve as her inspiration.

For those who like to roam around, the clean mountain air provides the perfect setting for adventure and exploration. If there’s a caveat, distance can be deceiving. Expect that going from Point A to Point B will likely be farther than initially thought. This is especially true when hiking uphill. Good luck! Don’t scale back! If a rookie like me can do it, so can you.
 

 

The Angle of a Landscape —
That every time I wake —
Between my Curtain and the Wall
Upon an ample Crack —

Like a Venetian — waiting —
Accosts my open eye —
Is just a Bough of Apples —
Held slanting, in the Sky —

The Pattern of a Chimney —
The Forehead of a Hill —
Sometimes — a Vane’s Forefinger —
But that’s — Occasional —

The Seasons — shift — my Picture —
Upon my Emerald Bough,
I wake — to find no — Emeralds —
Then — Diamonds — which the Snow

From Polar Caskets — fetched me —
The Chimney — and the Hill —
And just the Steeple’s finger —
These — never stir at all —

– Emily Dickinson
