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.

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.

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.
