Great event with very nice local Hungarians in their private house just outside the pulsating metropolis. An absolute MUST if you are interested in the country, people and customs. The hosts, an elderly happy couple, who really enjoy cooking and exchanging foreigners and the guide, the son of the family, were very pleasant, friendly and we also had a lot of fun and joy. Many thanks to the great hosts !!!
