Budapest, compared to Ukraine, is the land of choices when it comes to restaurants. In Donetsk, where I live, there is one decent choice for fast food: McDonalds. Budapest has several US chains as well as some good local restaurants.
Today, in a moment of weakness, I decided to go to Subway. I don’t do Subway as I feel that I can do a pretty good sandwich at home, minus the good bread at Subway. I had a roasted Chicken sandwich that was ok, but not great. This is exactly why I don’t do Subway.
One side “benefit” is to hear lots of folks speaking English. There were 3 girls from Britain talking and laughing. Then a boy and girl from the US came in and had a sandwich and left quickly. They didn’t talk much to each other.
What I “learned” from this experience is that I should listen to myself. I really didn’t want to go there, but decided to do so out of convenience.
Life is full of choices. This choice wasn’t a life or death situation. Yet, many of our choices impact our lives to varying degrees. The most important choice I ever made was in 1974 to follow Jesus. That is one decision I have never regretted.
