I'm not quite sure what I like about this car, maybe it's the colour? Yes, I like green!
I had a Hungarian girlfriend for 4 1/2 years, thusfore I've paid lots of visits to Hungary. We've lived together in my hometown for a couple of years, but of course she wanted to visit her family in Debrecen whenever she had the chance. So I happily tagged along. In the beginning it was pretty hard for me to submerge myself in a surrounding in which I couldn't understand a single word of what was being said. However I met a couple of nice people there who willingly wanted to show me around. I picked up the language along the way. With some effort, of course, Hungarian isn't the easiest language to learn, I soon found out. And as a matter of fact, sometimes I'm still struggling to get my head around those grammatical features. But, I can't complain now, I'm doing pretty well, if I might say. The fact that I spoke the language helped me to understand and appreciate the Hungarian culture even more. We all know that in translating something is lost and other things are untranslatable, and are question of feeling the intention. If you catch my drift... This first blog will be about Budapest. I'll leave a couple of pictures with some comment, because it has been a while since I was there, so I can't actually remember what happened or when I was at a particular spot. (The dates isn't right, I was in Budapest on the 3rd of January, 2005, 5th of June 2006 and December 29, 2006)
