For freedom & democracy

Last Saturday was an important day in Hungary – like a National day called St Stephan’s day. Free from Sovjet since 20 years. A new free Hungary. Who doesn’t want to celebrate freedom and democracy!?

A young man was waving the US flag in front of me – some tourists I think.

The fireworks went on for half an hour and from two places. From the Gellert Hills and from the Parliament.

Så mange fine bilder, og lærerikt å høre om deres frigjøring! Jeg likte spesielt bildene av fyrverkeri. Takk for opplysningen om feil link. Jeg har lagt til en ny, men får ikke tatt bort den gamle.
