It's my last night in Budapest so I stopped off at all my favorite spots on my street - poppy seed pastry from the bakery; hummus, eggplant salad, hot pepper sauce, and a pita from the Syrian place; groceries from the mini-market. Yum.

And a/c, wow. That's the a/c controller that I bought for tonight so I'm sure to sleep well for my early departure.

Köszönöm! That's thank you in Hungarian, an expression that seemed guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of everyone I had occasion to thank, and let me add that I did say it very well thanks to the BBC.

I'm now a total devotee of the BBC free language lessons online. Here's the website www.bbc.co.uk/languages. There's a section for travel expressions spoken clearly with the written text too. It's fantastic. Some languages have extensive lessons but Hungarian was not one of them. But basically Thank You did the trick because English is so prevalent.
