Hello Theolfa, You've put this picture under label "Carpathian Mountains" but placed it in Sylvania, a hilly region. You know, this is the "forest land" looking from Hungary center Transsylvania is "over the forest land". The Carpathian Mountains are farther. But this misplacement makes me to find your fine pictures. Greetings, and come back to Transsylvania!

Szia, Szilágyi! Thank you for your welcome explanation. If it is possible, I would like you to correct my mistake on the map, please. It was definitely forest when we drove through, & I would love to visit Transsylvania again, the people are so welcoming. "Hi!" from Saskatchewan, Canada. Theolfa

Hi, Theolfa! Fortunately there are so many forests and rocks and mountains in Transsylvania it's really impossible for me to place your picture. Might you have some more points of reference. If not, never mind!

Already wrote for other people: (Szilágyi is my last name. You know, we, Hungarians put first our family name, because the family is much important then ourselves as a person)

Greetings, Dezső

We and 30 family members of our friend Zsigmond (Andrew) hired a bus to drive from Budapest to Parajd & area. Somewhere along the way we stopped to view these magnificent mountains. I will be travelling to UK next week to stay with our friend Zsigmond & I will ask him to name the place. Köszönöm szépen, Dezsö!

Hi, Theolfa!

Do you have some hungarian roots? If not, is all the more appreciated your impeccable spelling.

Greetings also to your friends! Dezső

Köszönöm, Deszö! I have no Hungarian roots, but we have many Hungarian friends, I will be in Liverpool,UK, this week and will pass on your greetings. Thanks, Theolfa

Köszönöm, mirceaciurdar! I've moved it!

While the others are helping you geo-locate this photo in the Carpathians, no one has commented on the fact that it is a violet! Now that is specially significant. Did the others pick a bunch for you?


Theolfa on April 11, 2010

Ian, how clever and observant of you to realise exactly why I took this photo. This one was about two metres high up on the cliff and there were no others within reach. Besides, I do like to leave things growing. I'll sign off wth my Hungarian name. Ibolya.
