Fears for Foreign Dumpster-Divers in District VIII


We knew that life for Budapest’s dwindling band of expats isn’t as sweet as it once was, but it was still a bit of a shock to see the above poster in District VIII warning people in English that they might be the “next victim” of the municipality’s controversial ban on rummaging through trash bins.
