A weekend getaway to Kunhegyes

Steve and I headed to the country side last weekend (May 1-3). We needed to escape the city, the pollution, the noise, the busyness...and our laptops. So, we headed to Kunhegyes. A small town east of the city. We took a 3 hour train and arrived at a beautiful town where making lace, home-made palinka and marmalade are still appreciated! We were treated to a lace demo by the owner of the home. I was mesmerized by her handwork. Such patience and perfection. I tried to get an estimate of how long she has worked on this one piece. The answer was “a long time”. If she worked on it 8 hours a day everyday, it would take a few weeks!

We stayed three days and came back well rested. We road bikes, took naps and read books. A perfect weekend.
Photos of where we stayed. Below is a picture

On our front porch were tons of old boots.
We took a bike ride around town. Here is what we saw...
