I'm a very low key person, I've never been to a prom (not a tradition in my home country), our wedding we did it as simple as possible, and that's just left birthdays, well..I don't think so..haha , it's just not me!
Have you ridden on a limo before?

|Half-marathon @ Vasarhelyi Marathon Futóvesztivál |
We were there...... as spectator, of course. Although not a bad idea to participate next year, perhaps finally I could shed the excess 10kgs!
|One more shot 'cos I like this one, too :) If you're wondering, I took this from the bus.|

On the other hand, I would love to get my erm.....hand on one of those pallets. It has potential to be a great roll-away table!

display and contribute to the commemoration of March 15 . Amongst the many contributions of flags and flowers , I found this Huszár (Hussar) soldiers unique and adorable. Study the uniforms and mustaches, one or two are different!

I am not sure about the truth in the quote, but this yellow brick road will lead you to Liberty square ;)

I heard chanting, look out the bed room window and saw this group of football (soccer) fans gathering before a trip to the capital, for a match later in the afternoon.
The fans of this club (am not saying these people), I read, are known to be overly enthusiastic and at times get out of control, if you know what I mean... Anyway, I found out their team won.

Reading the town's coffee table book and online info., the Katona József Múzeum (est 1894) is as if still in operation. However, I took a walk there one day and found the museum in state of disarray. See it for yourself in the picture below
To say the national flag in the picture is dusty is an understatement! What a pity to see this gorgeous building in such a state. Hopefully the mayor's office will act fast before it really become an eyesore; especially that it is located right next to the main bus and rail station.

We're at another Hungarian brand cafe. It is a straightforward set up and catering more for takeaways rather than sit down. But once in a while it is nice to just slow down for a cuppa + newspaper + chocolate linzer biscuits ...bliss!
About the cafe...
Fornetti bakery was founded in our town, starting as family business, in 1997. Later it offered franchise business, which is why you see them all over the country now and even a few abroad.

Cafe Frei's chairs on this month theme day. Now we zoom out of the chairs and give you the interior. So, here is a view of the cafe from 1st floor of the library. It has very high ceiling. The wall is adorned with cow hide and portraits of people from around the world to coincide with the concept of global coffee and adventure.

When I see this old fashion cafeteria located in the Sunday market, it reminded me of the many occasions I spent in coffee shops back home. Nothing too fancy but always a joy.

Lángos, pronounced lang-gosh, a Hungarian deep-fried flat bread.You could eat it plain, which is what I preferred but most people order it topped with sour cream and grated cheese, like what you see in the photo. We usually have this only when visiting the Sunday market, of course you could have it anytime!

We don't have a zoo in our town, but the waterworks company does keep a green area for the wild life. On a good day, you see herd of deer. The sight is just wonderful! Imagine these creatures are just next to the suburbs - so near yet so far. Alas, on the lucky day when we do see them, chances are my camera is not with me..grrr..but I have vowed one of these days, I am going to spend a whole day nearby to get a close up shot!
I was informed by commentator, Sala that we do have a wild park ; which my husband knew about :p. So, he said we could visit this coming summer!

The theme this month is "cafe chair."
Which one do you prefer : The traditional cafe chair, the arm chair or the "bean" bag? Take your pick. Mine would be the arm chair!
You can see "cafe chair" around the world from other members' here.
A little on the cafe....
This cafe is located within the library and so we usually stop by the cafe for a drink whenever we're visiting the library.
Cafe Frei is a relatively well known cafe chain in Hungary as it is own by Támas Frei, a former tv personality turned coffee enthusiast.
I like the atmosphere and their concept of global adventure. Because of the global concept, it offers huge range of coffee from all around the world, without going through a middle man, so their prices are very reasonable.
