Well, as I promised, here are my answers to all of you who have been interested in my blog. Thank you so much for spending your spare time writing to me.
Stephen Keeler from London, thank you for your comment. I have never heard about the bookshop called Litea which means Literature & Tea, of course. I did a little research and I have found out that the bookshop still exists. This bookshop/teahouse stocks offers wide range of books on Hungary; CDs and cassettes of the works of Hungarian composers; and cards, maps, and other quality souvenirs for serious enthusiasts of Hungarian culture situated in the Fortuna courtyard, opposite the Hilton Hotel. The address is Budai Vár, 1014 Budapest, Hess András tér 4. I have found sites written only in Hungarian. If you are interested, have a look at the site
http://www.kavehazak.hu/kavehazak/kavehaz.php?id=302 and click on the text: Nézze meg a képeket! And you will see some photos. Is this the same bookshop you visited 10 years ago? Stephen, I will make certain that I go to the Litea when I visit Budapest next time!
Diema from Bulgaria, I am glad to know that you like my entries and I am your old friend. I can understand that you are a bit concerned that you have spent lots of time in front of the PC reading blogs and you might feel that you have stolen time from your family. Sometimes I feel the same. I think we are all obsessed with this site. Probably, you are right, we must limit the time we spend on the net. On the other hand, we must allow ourselves to do things that we enjoy without feeling guilty. Don’t you think so?
Tiasha from Sri Lanka, thank you for the New Year's wishes. I wish the same for you and your family. I am glad you liked my tapestries. I would like to see your cross stich work, too. Yes, sewing every piece took almost a year. I do like gardening. We have quite a big garden, a small vegetable pot, an orchard, a small rockery and lots of different flowers. Around our house there is grass everywhere. Tiasha, I can remember one of your latest comments when you were worried for my daughter when she was ill. You must be a really kind and caring woman. Thanks once again. Please give my warmest wishes to your family.
Mercč from Spain, I do hope you liked the pastry recipe. Please, don’t think that I can do everything simultaneously. Unfortunately, my days also last only 24 hours. I sewed my tapestries 4-5 years ago before I started studying English. I have not sewed any recently. I am pleased that you also liked the New Year’s concert. I live in a teeny-weeny village in the west of Slovakia. It is near the river Danube and about 50 km away from the border with Hungary.
Joseph Malou South Sudan, thank you for your kind words. I really like spending time with my family. I always enjoy their company.
Paco from Spain, I believe you must keep doing exercise and eating lots of fruit, vegetables, porridge every day for breakfast and brown bread – food which is fibrous which is really good for cholesterol. Then your cholesterol level will go down. Don‘t give up! Yes, help yourself and enjoy the cocoa snail!
Marianna from Slovakia, isn’t it interesting that we live in the same country and we are in touch through the net? It is a good fun!
Pary from Iran, I am glad you liked my tapestries and the sites of my country.
Korla from Xinjiang China, practice makes perfect! Just keep visiting this site, your English will be better day by day.
Habooba Ahwaz from Iran, I do hope that you will have a chance to go to England and visit London one day and practise your English as well. I am wishing you good luck!
Lidia from Moscow, I have tried my best to write about my life. I hope you enjoyed it. But I have missed your entries. You should write about yours, too. We are all interested to know more about your life, too.
Hyoshil from Lincoln, yes all my family was around for Christmas and it was sensational. I am sure, you can remember how excited I was in September 2006 when Csilla came home from the UK. Since then she visited us only three times. She was very busy last summer and could not come home because she worked as a camp counselor in the US. So every encounter with her is really a gift for me.
Erika from Hungary, Szia! Thank you for your comment and your wishes. Keep visiting this site! Enjoy kakaós csigát!
My dear blogmates, Ana Paula, Naheed, Adriana, Leila, James!!! My back is aching, my eyes are red and I am incapable of writing any more words…. I will come back tomorrow to say „Hi!“ to everyone.
Take care! See you tomorrow,
