Hi all .. its me Twinny !Back from HUNGARY !
No! No ! This country …
Is NOT related to Attila the HUN
NOR is it full of HUNGRY people!
In truth ….it is absolutely Wonderful !
3 great attributes of these great Siberian settlers … the Magyars…..with GENES ENTIRELY DIFFERENT from the rest of Europe….
FIRST….They are STRONG!
Brawn ! Brawn! Brawn!
The number of Olympic medalists from this country of a paltry 10 million .. shocking !
Champion swimmers 🏊
FENCERS 🤺 and 🤸♂️ gymnasts!
Water polo specialists!
BUDAPEST , the capital…
Likely to be the seat of the 2020 olympics!
POINT NUMBER TWO….Hungarians have BRAINS!
Big big ones…!
Ever wondered where the RUBIKS CUBE came from.. mystery ends in Hungary..
ERNO RUBIK invented!
Yes ..they use their second names first! Just like other Easterners… the Chinese/ Koreans!
Fellow traveller ARVIND GUPTA got whiff of this instantly….
Introduced himself as GUPTA ARVIND…
Small things like BALLPOINT PENS and SAFETY MATCHES were discovered in Hungary …
So also large things like HELICOPTERS! Wow!
Ok ok .. Leonardo Da Vinci drew the first helicopter in the 16 th century ..
but it was IGOR SIKORSKY
Who actually designed the first SUCCESSFUL one!
And The line up of NOBEL LAUREATES …simply daunting!
Not to forget the great ”ESCAPE ARTIST” HOUDINI…he was born here .. a Hungarian! Of course he ‘escaped ‘to New York and did all his amazing stunts there..each one a test of resilience and ingenuity …!
HUNGARIAN BRAWN ,
What a combo!
Here’s a pic of a museum in his name..
The ‘PEST ‘ part ( pronounced Paish)
Is the ‘PLAIN ‘part of Budapest… literally flat .. 3 times the size of Buda….hey …but there’s nothing ‘plain ‘about it…..
Now dimunitised from the proverbial BRAIN of EUROPE
To the Baby HEART of EUROPE!
Just look at the buildings…
Hungarians are Brawny
ooh lala .. hang in there Amruta ….they are
ROMANTIC too !
Land of FERENC LISZT the maverick composer..
Of actors ZSA ZSA Gabor , TONY CURTIS
…Of WILLIAM FOX…. founder of 20 th century Fox!
Here’s a picture of the perfect LISZT!
What more could a gal want??!
Yes ! Yes!
But I have to tell you Amruta …
the MOST number of SUICIDES in this world are in Hungary !
And of the Seven bridges crossing the Danube .,
From Buda to Pest …..And vice Versa .. the Chain Bridge , the Margeret Bridge etcetc ..the one ‘MOST CHOSEN ‘to jump from is the LIBERTY Bridge!!
Heavens ho! IRONICAL!
Why oh why Twinny??
Its something to do with Hungarian history ..Amruta …
Too often has Budapest been destroyed !
Too often has it been rebuilt !
Bombed over and over again.. by the Turks, then the Germans and finally the Russians..who came ostensibly to HELP rebuild the broken city .. but ….stayed for a long 45 years.. Hungarians finally got independence only in 1989!
Twinny. has a good mind to stick one in..and Change the wheels of fortune!
Of this great country….
HOW TO DO??
Hey Twinny….Solve ‘one ‘problem
at a time …
Woah Amruta…..that’s impossible!
NOTHING is Impossible!
Look…here it is!
In perfect alignment!!
