It is hard to imagine how strong structures can be made from the everyday strings of pasta we eat for dinner. Yet Hungarian students every year spend long hours but rather days building spaghetti bridges only to have them broken (or blown) into pieces for the sake of the Reccs (meaning ‘crack’ in Hungarian) competition – no wonder some of them can’t bear to watch it.

The story of an amazing hockey photo

Not so long ago I found a hockey photo that is quite rare in its kind. On the Ice Hockey world championships starting today in Budapest we surely won’t have a chance to take anything similar. Now that I publish this photo I guess we cannot even expect ever to have photographer holes on the glass here in Hungary – but I’m not sure if I really miss it or not.
