Hungarian Parliament at dusk, originally uploaded by Kevglobal.

I was in Budapest last week for a conference with the European Alliance of News Agencies conference. It was a fascinating meeting looking at the news industry from a slightly different vantage point than I’m accustomed.

I had heard great things about Budapest, and the city lived up to its reputation. MTI, the Hungarian state news agency, was the host, and they were very gracious hosts at that. I took this picture on a dinner cruise on the Danube. The Hungarian Parliament is a stunning building, and it was all the more stunning this night with the remnants of a fierce spring storm framing its towers with bolts of lightning.
