    Canola fields
    2 more images

    Coming from a "Western" country with all modern contraptions, we enjoyed the change of pace in the countryside around Gyro.
    This area is farmland, and in May it was a picture, as paddocks and paddocks were full of bright yellow Canola flowers.

    We took a step back in time when we had a farmer pull out onto the road infront of us with a Horse & crop seeder, then a little later, a farmer and his Horse and plough were out working the paddocks.
    It was really interesting for me to see the old farm houses and the style of farming carried out in this area of Hungary.

    Well this not a local custom but different from my country.
    All petrol stations were self service.
    Must put alone the benzene, well this is something uncommon for my country.
    We see this and in Slovenia and Austria.

    Dance till your feet'r on fire - the "Csardas"

    by iris2002 Written Apr 15, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Csardas - hungarian folk dance

    Old traditions - new talent

    I am close to crying everytime I hear this music, it goes under your skin - trust me!

    > Listen to Csardas music now!

    Csardas - also sometimes called the HUNGARIAN GYPSY MUSIC ----is the equivalent of what Tango is to Argentina - and to be honest I detect similar elements in those two music and dance styles...... both deeply rooted folklore that has spread through the whole world and is now becoming more popular than ever (thanks to Riverdance - Yoi!)

    A traditional Csardas band consists of many rather unique instruments> originating in Gypsy traditions:

    > the cymbal (a large piano like looking instrument with strings, played with sticks
    > clarinett
    > contra-bass
    > various vionlins/violas
    > tamburin

    Watermelons for sale

    fresh from the fields

    Watermelons were for sale - all over town - on the day that I was in Gyor. I saw them being sold from car trunks, from flatbed trucks, and from improvised stands in different parts of the city. Big fat round watermelons must be a local specialty. The general going price seemed to be 45 forint -- per kilo? I don't know.
