Mr. Hat finds his relatives. MagyarorsagHungary

 

Mr. Hat visits relatives in Hungary.

These are photos of our visit to Hungary in 2004. These are pictures of my relatives. Most of my immediate relatives live in Kaposvar (on my mom's side) or outside of Pecs (on my dad's side). We went in time for a Hungarian wedding (my cousin's daughter, Kincso and Balazs). My parents, my brother Csaba and his family, and my nephew Justin also went. It was one big family reunion. Bring on the Palinka (but not the Unicum).

Some basic Hungarian vocabulary.

Hello     Hungarian - Jo napot kivanok.

Goodbye     Hungarian - Hello (what's up with that) or Cia (pronounced See Ya)

I would like a beer.    Hungarian - Egy sor letseves.

Where is the bathroom (important for women)  Hungarian - Hol van a WC? (you will have to learn how to pronounce WC correctly)

Enjoy the slide show, click on any picture to enlarge it. (may take time to load, please me patient and have a glass of wine. Egri Bika Ver (Bull's Blood) or Tokay would be acceptable choices.)
