Then we boarded a horse drawn carriage that took us to the puszta, or plain. Here we saw how the farmers and cowboys lived, complete with a barn, a pig pen, a chicken coop, some outdoor cooking (Hungarian goulash being cooked over an open flame), tractors and horses.
We then headed back to the ranch and were entertained by a horse show. It was performed by traditional Hungarian cowboys who’ve learned to perform various tricks.
After the show we were led to the lunch area and where we had a terrific lunch served to us with plenty of goulash, bread, meat, potatoes and wine. We were entertained by a very good gypsy band that played traditional Hungarian folk music. After lunch it was time to go back to Budapest. Fortunately we had a driver so we could all fall asleep after engorging ourselves with the fantastic food.
