Last day in Budapest, back home tonight. Here for my birthday. Marred by the tragedy on the Danube on Thursday. Death toll probably 28, highly preventable. I've always been suspicious of safety standards on tourist River cruises in any big city, inc London. With no enforcement of navigation rules, there are bound to be tragedies.

NO POP-UPS ON SUNDAY! Really sorry, folks, but I’m not able to do Pop-Ups tomorrow The broken toe isn’t a problem, but the raging toothache overnight really is. I’m on antibiotics now, which if you know me isn’t anything I’m inclined to do except in extremis. Next week, Sunday 26th, will carry on as normal.
