In my last post I talked about setting fiction in Argentina. However, another overseas location is on my mind today: Budapest, Hungary. I went there in 2006, and recently had a story accepted for publication that is set there. The story is slated to appear next year, meaning that the story will be published ten years from the time i actually was in the city. On that trip, I went on a lovely Danube cruise, and so was able to send my protagonist on a similar cruise. This photo I took helped remind me of what it was like when I was there.
And now that the story is being published, I am grateful for the opportunity to remember Budapest again.
