A fanciful view of an otherwise messy little room on an upper floor of Szimpla Kert

Szimpla Kert is a romkocsma, which means ruin pub in Hungarian, located in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest. I fell in love with the place. The term “ruin” is not used lightly – the whole place, particularly this room, looks like it was taken over by deranged squatters.

An animated vision of a very interesting door in a small alley in Nafplio, Greece

For me, this door is irresistible. It’s got fairytale written all over it.

Captured this on a walkabout in Nafplio, a very charming and beautiful town in the area of Argolis (in eastern Peloponnese).

I only had a few days off from a short assignment in Athens and wanted a different taste of Greece. with the limited time and resources I had, Nafplio was a perfect fit. Very happy I made the trip.

One small area on the first floor of Szimpla Kert, the Budapest Ruin Bar

My own particular, very subjective and surrealistic take on the Szimpla Kert ruin bar in Budapest. When I went there, it was love at first sight. This is one small area on the first floor of the romkocsma, (means ruin pub in Hungarian), located in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest.

Obviously a day capture. The night scene here is a different beast. The animations (quite a few if you look closely) represent how I see that place. I would definitely have made this pub my personal hangout if I lived in Budapest!

One of the many details that attracted my attention at Szimpla Kert, a romkocsma, or ruin pub in Hungarian, located in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest. This is a daytime impression, with added animation all my own, of the place. The night scene is an altogether different experience.
