It's a Small World

My friend, Judith Papp  and I experienced the ubiquity of Magyars first hand in New York City many years ago. We were walking along Third Avenue in Manhattan, chatting merrily in Hungarian, of course. Wanted to cross westbound and were waiting, among many other pedestrians, for the light to change. Suddenly a strange fellow addressed us:

“Tessék vigyázni, ott egy pocsolya van!” (“Watch out for the puddle there!”)

We appreciated the warning but were too speechless to thank him...
