töltött káposzta

Today i prepared töltött káposzta (stuffed cabbage, but i did it Beáta Stanicsné Bödő-style and i layered it). It is one of my favourite Hungarian dishes. Please do not tell me that i prepared it the wrong way because there are as many ways to prepare it as there are families in Hungary. Some families make […]

The Donut Library

A Walk In The Park

My best friend, Pál Tamás, and i decided to take a walk in the Városliget (City Park) in Budapest. We found street art and a great cafe to eat a hamburger, in fact it was the best burger i have had in Hungary. If you are travelling to Budapest and want to eat a very delicious hamburger, […]

Scenes From The Road Of Racism

After i returned to Germany, where i stayed in my friend’s caravan, i travelled to Hungary in a hired van. There are many people who drive vans across Europe and they rent space out to people looking for a less expensive alternative than the normal modes of transport across Europe. It is cheaper, but the […]
