I was born in Hungary – travelled around in Europe & USA – spent 1 year in Tunesia learning Arabic ( the language and music).

Since 1997 I have been staying in South Africa … as if I have come home …I have been living here since with my husband and my two beautiful kids. I love playing the violin and the guitar (and whatever I find to make noise with – :-)- like drums, didjeridoo, rainstick, kora etc.) A few years ago I have discovered the Internet and open source technology – I haven’t stopped learning since ( all the things I have learnt – I should actually be given a diploma by now).

I am the project coordinator of the OpenCafe and ArtMarketOnline projects. Very exciting tasks, the OpenCafe for me is an opportunity to create an open, international learning environment – open source style – where everyone is a student & teacher in the same time – always something to learn & teach here. ArtMarketOnline – is similar to the OpenCafe – but we are doing it with artists – writers, painters, musicians, bloggers and the great thing is – anyone can become the artist or the audience and change these roles regularly.

    Szia Zsolt – orulok, hogy ratalaltal a blogomra – en is nezem majd a Budapest kepeket – orulok – hogy felfedezek egyre tobb magyar blogot. En sok mindenkivel tartom a kapcsolatot otthon – de mindig jobb, ha minel tobb magyar kapcsolatom van. Szuper a blogod by the way!

  3. Szia!

    Örülök, hogy egy magyar ilyen szinvonalas bloggal rukkolt elő Dél-Afrikából, sőt le a kalappal előtted. Remélem tudunk kommunikálni közösnek vélt értékeink mentén, bármilyen téma is legyen az. Gyönyörűek a képek, elég érthető számomra a szöveg – gyér angol tudásom ellenére is – s a lényeg, hogy az egésznek van mondandója, s értelme a világ számára. Ezt én már (csak) elhivatottságnak nevezném, ha nem bánod!

    Szívélyes üdvözletem Kaposvárról és őrízd meg tenniakarásod, kitartásod és rajongásod a jó ügy szolgálatában.

    Szavanna–wonderful to find your blog. I have been to Hungary twice I and just love it. Thinking of going back in October of this year. I spent some time with the Csikos out in the Puszta. I posted some pictures on my blog of them under the “Hungary” post. I love that you know Arabic—something I have wanted to learn for a long time. Excited to keep reading and learning from you.
