“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™‚

On Repeat Today: The Cranberries

I just learned that Dolores O’Riordan, singer of The Cranberries, just passed away. It’s such a big part of my childhood: I discovered music with them, it was the first CD I got when I bought my first hi-fi. I think I’ll be listening to them quite a bit in the next few days.

On Repeat Today: Kraak & Smaak

My wife and I discovered Kraak & Smaak about 10 years ago and loved it. So when we learnt that they would be in Budapest at Akvårium Klub, we had to be there!

The whole set was great, but I really liked their take on I Feel Love by Donna Summer. Since it turns out they had already played this the last time they were in Budapest, you can enjoy it too! :)

TV Series: This Is Us

If you follow this blog, you know I watch quite a bit of TV series. My wife and I watch a lot of science-fiction but sometimes we need something different; you can’t just watch one post-apocalyptic series after another, you need something a bit more positive and less dark from time to time. :)

This Is Us is perfect for that.
