hosok tere, miting biciklista
Hosok tere- Square of heroes is centar of many events. There is two museums, and both of them has great exebitions that day. When we left them, it was twilight and square was full of bicyclists. Number was rising. Soon, whole square and Andrassy Avenue where full.
And some nice bicyclist explane that  they come  to square to protest against unsafe bicycle paths, or something like that. It was 22.april,  Earth day, and also it was Critical Mass ride in Budapest!! Wow that was some sight!
At that time we think it is so childishly. We come from country were was war, and people go to strike or meeting only if your rights as human being are endanger.
We was cheerful and happy. It is not everyday spectacle. We take walk very slowly down the Andrassy Avenue, we saw House of Opera, and then go to have diner in restaurant.
bicycle meeting at hosok tere, square of heroes


Na Trgu heroja postoje dva muzeja, i oba su imali divne izlozbe tog dana, te smo proveli citavo popodne tamo. Kad smo izasli, sunce je bilo na zalasku, a broj biciklista u porastu. Uskoro ih je bilo toliko da nisi imao gdje sibicu baciti, a kamoli proci automobilom. Ispunjen citav trg i pocetak Andrasi bulevara.
Saznali smo od jednog ljubaznog bicikliste da su dosli protestvovati jer su im osporavana prava u saobracaju.
Stvarno?!!!
Bilo je to pravo otkrovenje. Biciklisti zdruzeni u borbi za svoja prava u saobracaju!
 Uzivali smo u toj detinjariji, jer u zemlji iz koje mi dolazimo na miting se ide samo ako ti je ugrozena egzistencija kao ljudskom bicu. O pravima biciklista i ostalih manjina niko ne vodi previse racuna, samo dok su svi zivi.
Oraspolozeni i srecni sto smo prisustvovali necem tako retkom, otisli smo do Opere, a onda jos dalje do Vaci ulice trazeci restoran u kojem bez zurbe mozemo vecerati.
