    And just think, Opapa spent summers in villages like this, right around this time, up to 1938. (Well maybe he started a year or two after 1932, but maybe not. Can’t ask him now.

    Yes! I know there’s a picture of Opapa wearing the regional attire of a village he visited somewhere in Hungary. I will have to go on a thorough search for it. I hope there are more!

    And yes, we’ve seen some lovely horses — https://adiligentobserver.wordpress.com/2013/01/07/magyar-monday-equinne-aristocrats/

    I wonder what beauty products they use.

    That I’d like to see! (Opapa, not the horses’ beauty products.)
