Surprising and adventurous story of how my camera got lost and found. I mentioned my old story in a recent blog post about a lost camera and I told I too managed to loose a big and heavy camera once. Like many others. It is a years old story, what I wanted to publish many times, but I never did ever since. Here is the story I learned at least one very important lesson.

I think it is important to tell on Easter Monday I too get watered – I hope not to wither without this celebrartion this year!

People in period military uniforms re-enact a historic battle in Tapiobicske (about 60 kilometres East-Southeast of capital city Budapest), Hungary on April 4, 2018.

169 years after the real Battle of Tapiobicske history enthusiasts reenacted the famous event with great joy. Hundreds of school children witnessed the unique history lesson and they enjoyed it almost as much as the people participating dressed as Austrian or Hungarian soldiers.

Participants enjoy a pillow fight flashmob on Heroes square in central Budapest, Hungary on April 04, 2015.

This weekend I photographed the pillowfight under the Millenium monument at Heroes square in Budapest, Hungary. Just like during the years before there were a lot of joyful participants enjoying the fun of the event, hitting each other until their stamina lasted. Then they cleaned up the mess caused by the feather and other stuffing released by the pillows.
