Magyar bloggers have spotted us

I was Googling around this morning when I spotted a reference to Generation Expat on a Hungarian-language blog, szanalmas.hu.

Szánalmas means pathetic or forlorn. This is a group blog, but I didn't find any statement about who runs it or why. Quite likely a circle of friends, though.

The post features a photo of Ian MacDonald with a wide grin (from the New Year's party, and this caption: "A blog devoted to those who lived in Budapest, Prague and other East Euro environs in the early 1990s, specifically those involved in Budapest Week and Prognosis newspapers and their circle of friends."

The post attracted 17 comments, including stuff like "I've always been interested in how foreigners see us. If only I had the time and patience to browse the site."

Someone named 'Gergo' linked to Tom Popper's photo with the comment: "How could you not love that smile? Well, I don't know."

I couldn't figure out how 'Rafasy' came up this statement: "I was a little annoyed by what they wrote under the picture. Of course, we're not America. But we never will be ('in the stinking life' - this expression doesn't translate too well.) It's a pity to constantly compare us to them or anyone else!"

I couldn't figure out which statement 'Rafasy' was referring to, the caption under the photo or the fellow who expressed interest in how foreigners see Hungary (but couldn't be bothered to browse this site).
