Photo of the Week – Statue of Ronald Reagan in Budapest

This week’s photo is of the Statue of Ronald Reagan in Budapest.

P1000588

The statue is located in Freedom Square not far from the old Soviet Monument.  The recent death of Margaret Thatcher has reminded me of the time they were both in power. The Cold War was at its height. Their role in ending the Cold War meant that whole of Eastern Europe was opened up to travellers to explore.  I did not agree with their politics but as a wannabe traveller I am grateful to the pair of them.

Until the next post stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.
