Trip to Hungary June 2008     Gallery of Photographs
Oh!, what joy to return to friends that we hadn't seen for 6 months. This trip was to follow up the work, that we were doing in the villages last year. I took a team of 8 people along with me, who had an interest in helping.
We visited 5 towns and villages, in Hungary, and briefly crossed the borders over into Romania. We hired a minivan, and started our journey in Budapest, driving NE, to Bag. We had arranged for another Summer Festival Day, like we did last year. This occasion brings the village people together, to share and enjoy, music, and dance. No strangers ever enter this part of the village, because of the poverty. Mudbrick,two room homes, have no running water inside, or toilets, or roads. The children looked healthy this time, as they were enjoying the Summer sun. Winter tells another story.
Next it was up to Dani and Kati s in Nyirbeltek, where we continue to support the work,  this amazing couple are doing. Kati has learnt to drive, and passed her driving test. Dani works hard in teaching the children music, and he works hard maintaining the two buildings. Dani and Kati still continue to feed the children every Saturday, to supplement their diet.
