at the Duna
  When it comes to colder weather, you can see lesser people on the streets in Budapest. This promenade along the river is normally full of opened restaurants and tourists can be seen walking up and down, but nowadays it is totally empty. The city prepares itself to the long sleep and waits for the next spring when the first sunny days will invite people to the streets again…..

The proverb for today is:Even the white lily can have a black shadow.Pls feel free to share with me a proverb from your country today too:)

hmm…. look at this ;) does it make you salivate yet?

This Hungarian food smells really great! Being here, all the food really live up to its presentation;) In case you wanna know, the Hungarian paprika is thought to be the finest, and will be labelled as from the Szeged region. This skewed meat cubes+onions+cucumbers with cheese on top had paprika sprinkled on to add color.
We bought some Paprika powder and I found out that Paprika releases its color and flavor when heated. Thus, sprinkling ground paprika over colorless dishes may improve their appearance, but does little for their flavor. Do you know? if you want to color the contents of a dish, it is best to stir the paprika into a little hot oil before adding ;)

Zsolt hopes you will share with him a similar proverb/saying from your country. It can be with similar meaning also…but its not a problem if its different. The main point is to collect proverbs/phrases/sayings from all over the world!

The proverb for today is:

One man’s meat is another man’s poison.

(meaning: No two persons are alike – every one has his own preferences, likes and dislikes.)
