Hi dear Toto! Thank you very much for your words of praise! Taking pictures in Patagonia seems somewhat irrealistic at the moment ;-) Yes, this is a very special hot lake, you can find some infos there: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sovata Some words about Romania, and the main reason of our summer trip: This part of Romania, as we called "Erdély" , Transylvania belonged to Hungary. The Treaty of Trianon, which closed the first World War (signed: June 4 1920) assigned cca. 103.000 km2 from Hungary to Romania, among others the "Székely Land" (Székelyföld), a cca. 15.000 km2 large historical region with cca. 80 percent Hungarian majority. The majority of the people living now in Székely-land is Hungarian, and their first language is Hungarian. Beautiful mountains, rivers, architectural treasures in towns and in the beautiful small villages, especially friendly people who love everyone who goes to visit from Hungary. I'm convinced that visiting Transylvania and the Hungarians living there is a must for every Hungarian person. All the best from Budapest, Hungary Béla
