View from Vysehrad

Kilatas Vysehradrol

After the Bohemian small town Pribram, a little bit of Prague again: one of the best places to visit, Vysehrad.
Pribrama bohemiai kisvaros utan megint egy kis Praga: Vysehradaz egyik legjobb hely, amit meg kell nezni. 
Today I forgot to go to the concert of my (so far) favorite Czech band, Hradistan... They were playing at the Summer Theater (Letny Scena, program)
Ma elfelejtettem elmenni az (eddigi) kedvenc cseh zenekarom, a Hradistan koncertjere... A Nyari Szinhazban jatszottak (Letny Scena, program
Isn't it very beautiful what they sing and play?
Hat nem gyonyorusegeset enekelnek es jatszanak? 
For more of this, visit the / Meg tobb ilyenert latogasd meg oket: Hradistan website
I did go to Vysehrad on the first day of June, with my sweetheart B. If you are visiting Prague, I think it is a must, yet we haven't seen too many tourists. It is indeed off of the obligatory Old Town-Charles Bridge-Castle area that everyone would see, but this spectacular spot is easily accessible. You can take the metro and trams or just have a little bit longer walk by the river, two bridges to the South from the Dancing House.
De junius elso napjan elmentem Vysehradra, a kedvesemmel, B-vel. Ha Pragaban jarsz, szerintem ez kotelezo latnivalo, bar nem lattunk tul sok turistat. Egy picit valoban kiesik a kotelezo Ovaros+Karoly-hid+Var kornyeke utvonalbol, amit mindenki vegigjar, azonban ez a latvanyos helyszin konnyen megkozelitheto. Metroval vagy villamossal, vagy akar egy kisse hosszabb setaval a folyoparton, ket hiddal delre a Tancolo Haztol. 
Definitely worth the effort, you will get some of the greatest views of Prague:

Garden with shirm

Gotta love Czenglish: after Standart Shisha, here we have this:
Imádnivaló a csenglish (csangol? cseh angol): a Standart Shisha után itt van ez:

Garden with shirm...

Garden (angol): kert(helyiség)

with (angol): -val, -vel

Shirm (=Schirm, German): parasol
Shirm (=Schirm, német): napernyő

ohne (German): without
ohne (német): nélkül

Exactly what one needs on such a hot afternoon as we are having these days here in Prague!
Pont, amire az ember vágyik ezeken a forró napokon Prágában

Beautiful stage background

Szépséges színpadi háttér

The Ice Saints seem to be still here in Prague, but as a compensation for the ugly weather, on Thursday I got to perform at one the most beautiful places: two quick shots from the restaurant of Petrinské Terasy.
Úgy tűnik, a fagyosszentek ittragadtak Prágában, viszont a ronda időjárás ellentételezéseként csütörtökön az egyik legszebb helyen léptem fel: két gyors fénykép a Petrinské Terasy étteremből. 

We were playing in one corner of the terrace; isn't this one a gorgeous stage background?
A terasz egyik sarkában játszottunk; hát ez nem egy gyönyörűséges színpadi háttér?

Petrinske Terasy

This was our view:
Mi ezt láttuk:

Petrinske Terasy

It was terribly cold for mid-May and very windy, but altogether it was a great evening, closing party of the Prague Book Fair, we had fun.
Iszonyú hideg volt május közepéhez képest, de mindent összevetve nagyszerű estnek mondhatjuk, a Prágai Könyvvásár zárópartyja, jót szórakoztunk. 

And this was one song that we did, just to give you an idea, with Agnes Kutas and Jaroslav Koran:
Ez pedig az egyik dal, csak hogy legyen róla valami elképzelésed; Kutas Ágnessel és Jaroslav Koránnal



As I love to travel, I am curious: tell me please, where could you imagine me/us singing?
Mivel szeretek utazni, kíváncsi vagyok: mondd meg, légy szíves, hol képzelnél el engem/minket énekelni?

Triangeln Station, Malmo

Triangeln vasutallomas, Malmo

I had an Absolutely Awesome long weekend in Halleberga, performing for the 20th Anniversary Camp of the Association of Young Hungarians in Sweden - so fully packed with beautiful places, meeting nice people, music, singing, dancing, camp fire, laughing, delicious food and all that I am a bit overwhelmed by deciding what to share first...
Abszolut klassz volt a hosszu hetvege Hallebergaban, ahol a SOMIT (Svedorszagi Magyar Ifjak Tarsasaga) 20 eves jubileumi taboraban leptem fel. Annyira zsufolt volt gyonyoru helyekkel, remek emberekkel, zenevel, eneklessel, tanccal, tabortuzzel, kacagassal, finomsagos etelekkel es egyebekkel, hogy azt se tudom, hol kezdjem...

Therefore I chose a subject where I only have a few pictures: on the way back to Prague, I hopped on the train at Triangeln Station in Malmo, to Copenhagen Airport.
Igy aztan egy olyan temat valasztottam, amihez csak nehany kepem van: visszauton Pragaba, Malmoben a Triangeln allomason szalltam fel a vonatra, a koppenhagai repuloterre.

Pretty, don't you think?
Csinos, nem gondoljatok?

"With languages, you are at home anywhere"

Nyelvekkel barhol otthon vagyunk

Although sometimes there are a few setbacks of living out of your suitcase and staying in hostels (snoring roommates, anyone?), so far I love the freedom that this life gives. I could go on and on about its advantages, but now let's just take this one: probably the greatest thing in it is to meet wonderful people from all around the world.
Bar neha akad hatulutoje is annak, ha a borondodbol elsz es szallodakban laksz (ismeros valakinek a horkolo szobatars?), egyelore imadom ezt az eletet, es a vele jaro szabadsagot. Hosszan regelhetnek az elonyeirol, de most vegyuk csak ezt az egyet: valoszinuleg az a legjobb dolog, hogy csodalatos emberekkel talalkozunk.

Last night we had a little episode: it's a six-bed apartment, and a small girl, maybe six years old, was sleeping next to me, only the two of us in this side of the big room.
Az ejszaka volt egy kis epizod: hatagyas apartment, ahol is egy kislany aludt mellettem, talan hat ev koruli. Ketten voltunk a szobanak ezen az oldalan.

Around 4am, I woke up a bit startled, looked up and this sweetie was touching my shoulder.
Hajnali 4 korul egy kisse riadtan ebredtem, felneztem, ez a kis edes erintette meg a vallamat.

I smiled at her, took her hand and said "Hello!" Nothing smarter came into my mind than to ask if she spoke English.
Ramosolyogtam, megfogtam a kezet, "Hello!". Semmi okosabb nem jutott eszembe hirtelen, mint megkerdezni, hogy tud-e angolul.

After a second of waiting and thinking, she responded in German and said something where I didn't fully understand the last word, only suspected what it might mean. But Gott sei Dank, she was talking Deutsch that I do speak, and not Portuguese or Chinese that I don't!
Egy pillanatnyi varakozas es gondolkodas utan nemetul valaszolt, es mondott valamit, aminek a legutolso szavat nem ertettem teljesen, csak sejtettem, mit jelenthet. De Gott sei Dank, nemetul nemetul szolt, amit beszelek, nem pedig portugalul vagy kinaiul - amiket nem.

So I briefly explained to her that I didn't understand everything in German, and asked her to show me what she was trying to say, and from there on it went easy: " Alles ist nass." Everything is wet - she has peed in the bed.
Tehat roviden elmagyaraztam neki, hogy nem mindent ertek nemetul, es megkertem, mutassa meg, mit akar mondani. Innen konnyen ment a dolog: "Alles ist nass." Minden nedves - bepisilt a szentem.

The rest is routine: I arranged her bed so that she could continue sleeping in dry, father woke up and gave her clean pijamas, and by the time I came back from the bathroom, the girl already cuddled up in her bed, sweetly, I stroke her beautiful head, she smiled - ready for Dreamland again.
A tobbi mar csak rutin: megigazitottam az agyat, hogy szarazba tudjon visszafekudni, Fater is felebredt, adott ra tiszta pizsit, es mire visszajottem a vecebol, a lanyka addigra mar edesdeden visszakuporodott az agyra. Megsimogattam a szep kis fejet, elmosolyodott - mehet vissza Alomorszagba.  

It's only a truly ordinary, tiny story, not even super-interesting and it happens every day in families, yet I wanted to put it down as a reminder that it's great to know languages, because you never know when and where will you use them.
Igazan csak egy hetkoznapi, aprocska tortenet, nem is haj, de nagyon erdekes, csaladokban mindennap elofordul. Megis le akartam irni, emlekeztetoul: jo, ha tudunk nyelveket, mert sose tudhatjuk, mikor es hol vesszuk hasznat.

Two Towers in Prague

View from the hostel room / Kilatas a szallodai szobabol

ps: Mentioned snoring roommates: a few days ago there was 2 boys in the room, from somehwere in Asia who did make some noise with their packing, moving around in the room in shoes with loud soles, and one of them acting as a tractor while sleeping... One afternoon, guess what: they gave me a pair of earplugs as a present! How considerate, isn't it? :-) Thanks guys, it's working pretty well!
ui: Emlitettem a horkolo szobatarsakat: par napja ket srac volt a szobaban, valahonnan Azsiabol. Bizony, csaptak nemi zajt a pakolaszasukkal, hangos talpu cipovel, az egyikuk meg raadasul traktort alakitott alvas kozben... Egy delutan - nem fogjatok kitalalni - adtak nekem ajandekba egy par fuldugot! Milyen figyelmesek, ugye? :-) Kosz sracok, egesz jol mukodik!

Feel free to comment, share, reblog / Szolj hozza, oszd meg, kuldd el masoknak!
I am curious: has a similar story happened to you when you unexpectadly had to use a foreign language, and you were grateful that you were able to?
Kivancsi vagyok: elofordult mar veled hasonlo tortenet, amikor varatlanul kellett hasznalnod egy idegen nyelvet, es halas voltal, hogy kepes vagy ra?
