After my mother married a Brasilian Ambassador, I was introduced to this wonderous drink. Fuelled with emotion and the spirit of Brasil, Cachaça (ka-sha-sa) helps kickstart my weekend, gives me a buzz after a long hard day creating ideas at the agency and creates conversation when situations can be tricky. This drink (although I am not an alcholic!!!) is something I can never live without... pure fabulousness in a bottle and on top of that. Caipirinha! - That says it all!
The beautiful blue Danube winding around the Margaret Island, sweeping past the immense Houses of Parliament, the chain bridge that twinkles at night, the Liberty Statue that shouts out love freedom at the top of her lungs. The Palace that reminds us of a golden age. The little streets that hold wonders of days gone by, the smell of fresh coffee wafting from every street corner. The parks, the trees, the old rickety yellow trams, the smell of the first underground ever in Europe. The grandeur of Heroes Square. The nightlife and the parties. The immense beauty this capital emmits is breathtaking and a place I love to live, to work, to be happy, to love...This place I call home, the city called Budapest.
