  Horse with rider
by ruubje

When you walk around the House of Parliament, you'll find this statue. This is just a nice picture of it, but at the time I wasn't really thinking about who it actually was...
And when you walk in Budapest for a few days, you'll notice that you don't understand the language at all. You'll recognise nothing, no words come even close. In the underground for example, you hear these nice melodies every time you arrive at a station with this totally not-understandable talking after it.
Anyway, my theory is that the Hunagrian people came from somewhere in Asia, Mongolia perhaps (?). And they came on horses, having children with the local women and settling down in an area we now call Hungary.
Hmm, maybe I should read some literature first before making all this nonsense...
