Well, let me tell you that Hungarians are very well fed, and they're hungry when they go on a diet after a holiday feast.
About the "Hungarian goulash" that is nothing more than elbow noodles cooked with ground beef and tomato sauce, I assure you that it's not Hungary's national food the "gulyas".
Usually goulash, gypsy music and Zsazsa Gabor pops into people's minds when Hungary is mentioned.
Well, there is so much more to the place where I was born.
I have to admit, I flinch when people tell me:
1. Oh, Hungary is that Eastern European country
Nope, Hungary is located in Central Europe.
It is a fact the the English is considered to be the richest of languages with a vocabulary of 600,000 to 800,000 words.
But, I found this bit of interesting fact:
In a book entitled Hungary, Essential Facts published by MTI Media Bank a journalist, Tamas Vladar, states that ''the Hungarian vocabulary is estimated to be between 800,000 and 1,060,000 words'' and,
being an agglutinative language, ''computer analysis has shown that Hungarian has some 27 billion inflected, affixed words and word fragments''.
Ancient Hun writing called "Rovasiras"
