Budapest, Hungary

Hopefully ill manage to write this before midnight, as this post would count for Friday and for the PFF...which stands short for Postcard Friendship Day and is hosted over at Marie Reed's really cool blog...its not just postcards there, but a number of various themes you may really be interested in...so just go and have a look...and me, hopefully, will be a regular Friday poster....thing is, Friday being my day off, i just get carried away with stuff and all and need to do all those things im unable to do during the week, so by the time you say 'pancake' the day has gone...speaking of pancakes, i had a delicious one today...i know i shouldnt have eaten it and i know that its not gonna do any good to my complaints that my pants just feel too tight, but oh, i just couldnt resist it...if only i didnt have that huge sandwich before that...

This card was given to me by my friend Marija who spent her New Year holidays in Budapest. She is one of those people who prefer to give you cards in person instead send them from the actual place...i never understood this...i guess not everyone gets the thrill of buying postcards and stamps, addressing them, writing something on them, and then wait for the surprise the other person will have when they find their card in the mailbox...its a pity most people here simply are not used to this...i wonder if its due to the fact that they dont really get mail so they just dont know the feeling...but i would never stop sending cards...even though i go bankrupt afterwards, coz i just send waaay too many :D :D :D :D But i love it, and i rather cut down on food or not by myself some souvenir i know ill never have a use for and that will just catch dust, instead deprive someone of a card....yaaay, hooray for the Postcard Friendship Day and long live postcards!!!!

I read about your pancake on Facebook. For you to write about it twice, it must have been REALLY good.

This is a beautiful card and, even though Marija didn't send it through the mails, I'm sure it was still a surprise for you -- plus it has no postal marks and wasn't bent up by machines!

I was just thinking about making pancakes! Now the idea of a big syrup covered brunch will be realized! Hooray for your wonderful post and love for yummy food!

i mentioned that pancake on the forum as well...so its three times :)
yeah, it was bloody good indeed...stuffed with white cream, coconut, chocolate syrup, roasted almonds, nuts and walnuts...i LOVE that melting-crunchy combination...and i have a soft spot for coconut :)

oh, and regarding Marija...its the thought that counts...she even had two cards and gave me the chance to choose...which was good since i DID have one of the cards, so i chose this one...my point was about the lack of habit people here have in sending postcards...im actually intrigued by the absolute lack of postal culture in general here...
