What do you do when all your planned activities for the day cancel? Well, if you are a senior missionary with a car and one of you is horse crazy, you set out in search for the famous Hungarian horses and horsemen!
We found this one who looks like he forgot his saddle!
Here's a momma with a baby.
Here are a horse-drawn wagon made of wicker and a sleigh for children. Do you think that ponies pull these?
But that's not what we are looking for. We are not looking for horse statues on buildings...
or horse drawn carriages.
We don't want Hussars.
I stopped and asked this old Hungarian where we could find the genuine Hungarian horsemen that we were looking for.
He suggested we go out on the puszta or Hungarian plain to Rádpuszta on the south side of Lake Balaton and find a nice csarda, or old Hungarian restaurant, and let the magic happen.
Here is Caroly with her onion sandwich hors d'ouevre. Does she look satisfied yet?
Maybe some nice Hungarian Gypsy music will be the magic touch.
The waiter suggested we try the wine in the 160 year old wine cellar. We declined.
The food brought smiles to our faces--goulash and stuffed cabbage.
But this is what we were looking for.
Now we have a happy camper.
