|Lots of Langos Choices|
On the main floor of the market people shop for vegetables and meats. This market has some of the best looking vegetables in Europe. Tomatoes, perfectly ripe, cabbages, corn, broccoli and cucumbers. We found this bin of cucumbers interesting as it held examples of what you see here. This looks a lot like 5 cucumbers grown together.
While eating our first Hungarian dinner we saw several tables where people were squirting fizzy water from large bottles. We had to try that! It had a fresher taste than what we get in Italy, and from then on, we had to have this on our table. I was also happy to see that this miniature water dispenser cost less than what we would pay for bottled fizzy water in Italy.
They have good beer in Hungary, but this seemed to take the edge off the heat of the day. Plus it was kind of fun to push the top down and fill our glasses.
You can see a glass of hot tea behind it, which most shop owners in Turkey offer their customers. We like this tea as it is a bit sweet and not bitter, and brought home 2 kilos.

I can make fried bread balloon up like this when making sopapillas, but it is more difficult to obtain this bubble of air in my oven. I would need a pizza oven.
Travel changes when one gets older. You begin to enjoy the little things. I have to admit to you that I have seen enough castles and lodgings of the rich people of the past, enough museums, and enough famous sites that now I like finding these small things along the way. I really enjoy sitting and people watching, watching the residents go about their day, for instance. I use my painting of watercolors as a way to slow down and just enjoy the day. 40 Countries in 70 years. It has been good!
