More than 10,000 Chinese live in Hungary - more than in any other country in central Europe. Though xenophobia is a reality there, the Chinese community has been largely tolerated.The Hungarian government sees ties with the Chinese as a way to help revive the country's weak financial situation. Beijing hopes to make Budapest an economic bridge to Europe - and the Chinese community there has been largely left alone. But the group has not completely integrated; they have their own newspapers and television channel. A large and modern Asian shopping center caters to members of the community - and a bilingual school has also been opened in Budapest.
I was blessed with an opportunity to travel to Central Europe (Czech Republic, Poland, & Hungary) last fall with my husband and mother-in-law, and we had a wonderful time...I chose to keep a travel journal along the way to capture our adventures, and this is the result. I found much of my inspiration for this style of travel journal from Mary Ann Moss' blog, I highly recommend it. To see what my handmade journal looked like BEFORE my trip, click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgt0oR... Thanks again for watching!
Travel Journal No.3 is finally up people!!! So hyped, this is my favourite vlog yet. I honestly had so much fun making and editing this one. But let me know what you think still :D Also check out our friends' blogs, they're inspiring in the fashion world. Promise. If you're hitting up Budapest, make sure you check out Szimpla Bar (which was where we went but not captioned in the video). Possibly the best bar I've ever been to! ^_^ And special thanks to the awesome people we met at Budapest: Kata our Airbnb host, Susie, Bence, Bence's fabulous boyfriend (I feel terrible for forgetting your name, SORRY!) and Dina the Carrot Lady, you are so gorgeous. **I do not own any of this music. My intentions are to share good music from such talented artists. I hope you guys enjoy them as much as...

Following the introduction of strict border rules, Hungary declared a crisis situation in two counties struggling to cope with the growing number of migrants. Mark Kelly reports.

Relations between Hungary and Slovakia have become strained after the government in Budapest offered passports to members of Slovakia's Hungarian minority. Bratislava has reacted angrily.Hungary's new prime minister Viktor Orbán has wasted little time in announcing that ethnic Hungarians living in Slovakia will soon be able to apply for a Hungarian passport. Orbán neglected to inform the Slovak authorities first and they were quick to voice their disapproval. Slovaks of Hungarian descent who accept Hungarian passports now risk losing their Slovakian citizenship. In addition, Slovakia's Hungarian passport holders won't enjoy the same rights granted to regular Hungarian citizens. They will neither be able to vote in Hungarian elections nor qualify for social security benefits in Hungary.
Farmers in northeastern Hungary are complaining about large-scale crop theft. Some of them have had to give up their farms.Impoverished villagers often steal a little food from farmers'fields. But increasingly, whole truckloads of animal fodder or alfalfa are disappearing. It's suspected that livestock breeders are the clients of these well organized thefts. The farmers have little chance of stopping these nocturnal thieves given the size of the fields. Some farmers have hired security companies to guard their fields. But that's expensive and doesn't offer 100 percent protection. The government has now increased the penalties for such crimes. But that hasn't deterred the thieves.

Last October, a toxic sludge spill from an aluminium plant in western Hungary claimed nine lives.Travelling at speeds of 60 kilometers an hour, the red slurry flooded several villages. Those affected were promised help, but so far little has been forthcoming. Most are still in emergency accommodation, while the aluminium factory responsible for the disaster resumed production long ago. Meanwhile, there is evidence of heavy metal contamination in rivers in the area.
Two years ago Hungary approved its National Social Inclusion Strategy, intended to improve the lot of its Roma population. Back then, the strategy was hailed as a milestone that could be a model for Europe. But the ethnic minority has seen little benefit. Read more: http://www.dw.de/program/european-journal/s-3065-9798
Nearly two million people in Hungary - particularly in the southeast - lack access to clean drinking water. In a number of European countries, the groundwater is contaminated with heavy metals. Hungary, Serbia and Croatia are especially affected. For more information go to: www.dw.de/english www.dw.de/program/european-journal/s-3065-9798
The head of the Hungarian prime minister’s office said on Thursday that the “tolerance period” toward illegal immigrants will end on Sept. 15, a move intended to make them “change direction.” Mark Kelly reports.

Viktor Orban's conservative Fidesz party won a landslide victory in the Hungarian parliamentary elections, garnering over 50 percent of the votes. The far-right Jobbik party will also be represented in the new parliament - pushing an openly xenophobic, anti-Semitic agenda.The election result not only reflects the country's beleaguered economic and social situation, but also its deeply polarized political climate. The new Prime Minister Viktor Orban is now facing major challenges, including tackling Hungary's enormous state debts, creating jobs and reducing red tape. And the rest of Europe will be watching to see if he can keep a lid on the country's right-wing extremists.
Hungary holds the Presidency of the European Union. But it is currently risking conflict with the EU. It has forbidden sales of agricultural land to foreigners.When negotiating its accession to the European Union, Hungary agreed to liberalize the purchase of agricultural land. But now the government in Budapest wants to keep farmland from being sold to foreigners. With a Law on the National Stock of Land, it controls private sales of fields, meadows, and forests. Many farmers, especially from Austria, had bought such land and now feel cheated. They were counting on seeing their pocket contracts legalized.
Said goodbye to friends whom I traveled with almost 2 weeks in Bratislava, went to Vienna to run into a girl I met in London. Stayed at a party hostel in Budapest which resulted in ... partying and met some of the coolest dutch and english dudes ever. Music Credits: Maybeshewill
