Having only just arrived this evening there's not much to report yet but I'm sure I can summarise a few things.
* As a Brit abroad one thing that friends and family are bound to ask before anything else, even before "did you have a good time?" is "how much is a pint?" so yeh it's about a quid, the beer is cheap which makes you not realise when you're buying an 'expensive' super strength beer for £1.50, still gotta drink it though eh?
* everyone speaks perfectly good English which is a bit disappointing because they have no patience whatsoever for an Englishman trying to dribble out a few Hungarian phrases in a Polish accent. If I can't master the Hungarian fully then throwing in a bit of broken German to compensate still counts right?
* I put my foot in a pond, after a few drinks I thought it was glass not water (???). Walked about the bars with a soaking wet left foot all night.
* they have some proper dudes on their bank notes these Hungarians
