Coppages in Hungary: Previous Pictures

I used to put up a new picture or two every week. Then it was every month or so. After the end of 2012, it became never; I decided to spend my time on lesson plans instead. If you want to go further back in time, then choose one of these links. In proper blog fashion, time goes backwards here.

For Christmas, my friend Ildi took me to an operetta.
Here she is standing next to a display about a
special actor from years past.

The theater was beautiful!

Doug and Pascal on Christmas day.

Karen's youth band played at church
a couple of times at the end of the year.

Here's what the baseball field looked like on New Year's Day:

Szalagavató is a major event for seniors here in Hungary.
On this special night, they receive a ribbon ("szalag") showing
their school, class, and years of attendance. Then they have a
long show, with dances (including the waltz), songs, and skits.

Some of my favorite kids did Gypsy dances and music.

If a class has no girls, the guys have to take the part.
I'd love to ask these guys if they enjoyed wearing bras.

Every month, a group of people from our church go to a
village to be with kids from an orphanage there. A few
people hang out with the teenagers, and the rest do a
Bible lesson, do a craft, and play with the kids.
I went for the first time this past week, and I loved it;
I'm hoping my schedule will allow me to go again.
