#ViktorOrban had a speech that made waves last week. I watched it so you don't have to.A thread.The #Hungarian prime minister went to #Romania in the middle of the #Carpathians in a region where a sizable minority of around 1 million #Hungarians have lived for centuries. They /1
were sent by the #Empire as settlers & have been living isolated, hundreds of km from the border with #Hungary proper, maintaining their language, identity, surrounded by a majority of #Romanians. The choice of the location matters as the audience lives there (star)/2
in beautiful surroundings. #Hungary has been supporting this minority investing in #agriculture #schools loans, building new sports arenas while the #Romanian government has been tolerant of this encroachment on sovereignty to maintain #social #peace good relations /3

A signature #Hungarian food to try when visiting #Hungary:
lángos (laan-gosh)

Deep-fried bread dough, often eaten with any combination of garlic, sourcream & cheese


(Not for the #health conscious, but I'd also have it occasionally)

1. Scything grass by hand is an art, but unfortunately this is slowly being replaced by mechanisation. This farmer sharpened his blade regularly and kept his stone in a holster on his belt for easy access. #sustainability #grass #farming #Transylvania #scythe #hay Image
2. Hay making in Transylvania #sustainable #farming Image
3. The farmer was just finishing off here. He had a very efficient, fluid motion with a wide reaching arc. He was such a pleasure to watch. #scythe #scything #farmer #farming #makinghay #grass #Transylvania Image

1. "Until the cows come home" At one point the herd became quite orderly following this leader along the centre of the road. The queue of cows extended all the way back to that pink gate in the distance. #cows #dairy #farming #Transylvania
2. Note the white stork's nest to the right of the photo. Hard to see at this distance but there is a stork crouched in that nest.
3. Most villagers have a cow in this village each morning they let them out from their barns and onto the street to join the village herd. A herdsman then takes care of them whilst they graze on communal meadows (for a small fee).

I've never quite been the same since I learned about trovants. These are rocks, actual rocks, that not only 'grow' but MULTIPLY.
The most famous example can be found in the tiny village of Costeşti in Valcea County, Romania. Known locally as the 'living stones' they have been the backdrop to folktales for millennia.
Indeed they have been there much longer than people, coming into existence due to a series of earthquakes some 6 million years ago.
