“Gorilla” Gardening / “Gorilla” KertĂ©sz

KĂ©tfarkĂș Kutya PĂĄrt (two-tailed dog party) is a joke political party in Hungary. They’ve been mocking Hungarian politicians for years, and they keep doing just that for this year’s elections.

Yet this little sign, that I found in the park where Lili and I go to play, is the best thing I’ve seen come out of this year’s campaign. They planted red currant, black currant, mulberry, raspberries, thyme, rosemary, all around the park, as part of a Gorilla Gardening (sic) action to make our children’s parks friendlier and more beautiful.

Here is hoping that no one destroys those plants out of spite.

Joyeuses PĂąques ! / Happy Easter!

Adri and Lili were busy this year for Easter: they made lots of little decorations to make Easter special!

Adri et Lili étaient trÚs occupées pour Pùques cette année ! Elles ont créé plein de décorations !

Cooking with friends at Chefparade’s Cooking School

This is not our first time taking cooking courses with Adri, and certainly not the last. We always enjoy a nice evening talking about food, learning new tricks, laughing, and eating obviously. 🙂

This time around, we cooked mussels with parmesan and parsley, followed by warm goat cheese with salad, olives, and wallnuts, and a beef cheek stew (with lots of wine) with mashed potatoes, and crĂšme brĂ»lĂ©es for dessert. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? Wait until you see the pictures! đŸ™‚

The Danube’s changing colours

Depending on the weather and the light, the Danube can look dramatically different; these days it’s mostly grey but I got the chance to catch a nice green Danube last week. Compare it with this Blue Danube a couple of days later!

A few days in Albuquerque

Working for Automattic is pretty great. Not only is the work fun and challenging, I also get to travel quite a bit. In the past few years, I’ve discovered San Francisco, Pune, Kauai, Dublin, and many other interesting places.

This month I added two more cities to my list: Madrid, Spain, and Albuquerque, New Mexico. I didn’t take many pictures in Madrid, but I know my colleague Donncha will keep adding more pictures from our trip to his photo blog in the next few months. 😊

I did, however, take a few pictures in Albuquerque.
