This week I spent three days at a training. On the last day around midday I had a phone call from home: “everything is fine here, but Goblin killed a pigeon”. I could imagine how does the whole thing look like, so a sudden wave of worry and guilt ran through of me – this is the first time that I asked S. to take care of the animals, and he has this unexpected problem now… But his voice was calm, and he said that he just would to inform me, and things are under control.
Guess which post was the most popular one here in the last seven years. This one. The comments show the most important feature of Hungarians: they take themselves too seriously. To make peace I’ve decided to show some parts of Hungary that I’ve visited in the last two weeks. These are not parts of the famous ‘tsikosh-gulash-puszta’-feeling nor as famous as the architecture of Budapest, but it’s worth to visit them.
Hungary is practically a flat place, the highest point of the country is just 1014 meter. If we want to see real mountains we have to go to Austria, Slovenia or Slovakia. But even if we don’t have snowy peaks, there are some extremely beautiful mountain forests. Look at this:
The tiny black spot in the middle is S., who is a man of average height – like this you can imagine how do these trees look like. The picture was taken at Paradsasvar, which is a nice small village in Matra surrounded by forests like this.
This summer is extremely hot in Hungary, so if we would to escape from the sun the best is to find a place under the trees. This place is next to Budapest on the Buda side:
They say that the world is changing at every seventh years. I don’t really believe in this, but I have to admit that seven years ago a lot of things happened to me. 2008 changed in my life in different terms: I lost someone who was important for me and I found others who are still with me as friends, helped me to take decisions or made me re-think my principles. An yep, I started to write a blog… I have to say thank you to Hyperflite for this special opportunity, you don’t know guys how much did you give me with this idea. Since that I have two other blogs in Hungarian, one about my job and one for my poems and short stories. But this one will always be the ‘one and only’. I don’t know what will happen to me in the next seven years, but one thing is for sure: you’ll be informed about everything here
To celebrate I’ve changed the text of ‘About Kata’ in the main menu. The old one you can find as the very first post here: introduction
Happy 7th to us!
As I mentioned before first weekend of July was a busy one for us. On Friday we had a short trip abroad – details later, if everything goes fine, in October 😉 Now I can not tell more about it. On Saturday we went for a dog-dancing competition, the first one for us this season. I wouldn’t skip it anyway for different reasons. First because it was a nighttime event which is always a lot of fun. And this was he very first competition of Goblin.
After a long Friday I really just would to have fun with some friends and dogs. In my interpretation it means that I entered to the competition with all of my dogs, of course. But believe it or not, this time I was not me who appeared on the field in every class. Thank you Orsi for saving me from the ‘crazy chick with a lot of dogs’ title this time And you did a GREAT job on the field!
What could happen if you give an empty suitcase to a dog trainer?
Some are happy to pack themselves:
Some find the whole thing a bit suspicious
But who wants to stay at home this weekend? There will be two important doggie event that we’ll participate. So it’s better to be sure that we have everything that we’ll need
Oh, and we should not forget to take some dogs!
