Travel Stories from an Asian Man #5

Links to stories #1, #2, #3, and #4Continuing on the Hungarian theme, this story takes place in Szentendre, a sleepy, quaint town a short train ride north from Budapest.

An Asian female friend and I were walking around Szentendre. It was November, so it was quite cold and there weren’t many tourists.

Since the town is so small, we walked through the main square several times, and every time we walked through, the sole man offering horse-drawn carriage rides would yell at us and try to get us in his carriage.

While this isn’t so unusual, this was his pitch: “Hey, Jackie Chan! Yoohoo! Jackie Chan! Romance!” I wonder if he’s ever been successful with that.
