hello from Emmanuelle Richard

frog_petit.jpg

Cheers from Los Angeles,
A quick introduction to explain a frog's presence on this site: I went to Budapest in December '94, at the age of 22, to fulfill my dream of living in a country I had fallen in love with in the late '80s, thanks to a Hungarian Cure fan and penpal. I had spent the summer of '93 as an intern at The Daily News, the English-language weekly from the MTI agency, while writing my thesis about FIDESZ. In France, I was actually a subscriber to the Budapest Week, so when I moved to Hungary, I already loved the paper and knew all these people's bylines by heart.

In Budapest, I gradually became a freelance correspondent for various French media (my first published article from Hungary was for a communist weekly!) and wrote quite a few stories for Budapest Week in bad English. Learned a lot about journalism thanks to the editing of Chris and Julius, as well as Adam's advices. I fondly remember my time at the Budapest International Press Center on Liszt Ferenc Tér, with one phone line for the 5 freelancers sharing the room, and Cafe Incognito right at the corner. I met my husband Matt when he was managing editor of the Budapest Business Journal. Some people remember the birthday party for me he organized at the Gellért Baths, sponsored by Lifestyles condoms, and our farewell party at the Rudas in December '97, which made Anita Altman's column in the Budapest Sun.

Then it was time for us to leave town. After a silly attempt at moving to Cuba, we settled in Los Angeles, where we're both freelancing and leading a happy life under the sun. I often dream of returning to Budapest, but in the meantime it's important to keep in touch with friends from this magical era. You can contact me through my site emmanuelle.net and click email.

It was a long presentation already but how could I forget to mention this article we co-wrote with John N. for Bud Week about "Budapest, Euro capital of porn" back in 95. Not exactly war reporting in Sarajevo but a first that sparked a mini-media frenzy that lasted for years. Now I'm reading about how Budapest has lost its infamous title, partly because of the growing number of Hungarians with cable or satellite: the girls are afraid of being recognized by family and friends.

Very few things actually get manufactured these days, because in an
infinitely large Universe, such as the one in which we live, most things one
could possibly imagine, and a lot of things one would rather not, grow
somewhere. A forest was discovered recently in which most of the trees grew
ratchet screwdrivers as fruit. The life cycle of the ratchet screwdriver is
quite interesting. Once picked it needs a dark dusty drawer in which it can
lie undisturbed for years. Then one night it suddenly hatches, discards its
outer skin that crumbles into dust, and emerges as a totally unidentifiable
little metal object with flanges at both ends and a sort of ridge and a hole
for a screw. This, when found, will get thrown away. No one knows what the
screwdriver is supposed to gain from this. Nature, in her infinite wisdom,
is presumably working on it.
