4 responses to Communism, Capitalism and Defining “Eastern Europe”

  1. I feel the same. I love Central Eastern Europe more than the West. You made a good choice to study there.

  2. Thanks! Im glad you enjoyed it. I definitely fell in love with Hungary, and “Eastern Europe” more broadly. Have fun living in Budapest! Im jealous! :)

  3. I love this post! My father is English and my mother is Hungarian, so I grew up between the two countries. I think there are lot of misconceptions about Hungary, but it’s just that non-Western perspective is what I love about it the most. I’m looking to move back to Budapest this summer (I’m going for 2 months to get a feel if it’s the right decision, but I’m looking to stay).

  4. Nicely said. I especially like your take on us/the U.S., how we often look at the world as though divinely (the eye at the top the pyramid on our paper money, comes to mind) . . . apart from it . . .
