Bizarre Budapest II: A perplexing people mover
Riding a scary Budapest “vertical escalator” in four steps:
Step one: See that gold ledge on the right? That’s the platform. Step on it before it goes up too high, or risk hitting your head. Or miss it entirely and look like an idiot in front of everyone else waiting for the elevator.
Step two: Pretend you’re in something larger than a coffin.
Step three: face outward. (You don’t actually have to do this, but everyone else does.)
Step five: congratulate yourself for (1) not dying and (2) refraining from pretending you’re in a Harry Potter movie. Out loud.
Have a happy weekend, everyone!
