IMG_2053Love Locks like these are pretty common in European cities, having originated in Paris, I believe. Traditionally, couples write their names on a padlock and throw away the key to symbolize their everlasting devotion. A bit more untraditionally, Hungarians have evidently resorted to combination locks and bike locks for those maybe-eternal-maybe-not romances.

As I was taking this picture, I overheard two men behind me saying in unison, “Definitely the combination lock.” Anyone care to place a bet on whether these two romantics are single?
