Speaking Bolgoslavian

  • Turkish is very close to Hungarian apparently. In fact, there are very few words in common. Small in Turkish is kucuk. When I used it to ask for a small bottle of vodka, I didn't realise it was also Hungarian for "you filthy faggot".
  • English films are popular and cheap on DVD in Hungary. Almost irrestistible is the new Noah Wyle film, Librarian: Quest for the Spear. Or, as it's sold in Hungary: TitKok.
