Szombathely -- Saturday Place
"Our Hosts -- Csalad Matok"
I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. Cleveland has more Hungarians than any city in the world except Budapest. I have many Hungarian friends, and one of my best friends Andrew's family is from Szombathely, so we had to visit. This is the Matok family who we stayed with during our visit. Best friends of Andy's mom. Ipsi was in Cleveland for the summer and was tutoring me in Hungarian.
"Szombathely means Saturday Place"
Szombat is Saturday, hely is place. This is where the country folk come to market. This makes it a lively place on weekends, with fresh produce, and interesting folk.
The only rain we had on our trip was in Szombathely! So I don't have many pictures. The other reason is that we were given a whirlwind tour by Lulu at breakneck speed in his automobile.
