I had a pint at lunchtime and the barmaid was Hungarian. This reminded me that I had 2000 Hungarian Forints (about £5) in my wallet which I could change into usable money.
So, I walked into the change bureau M&S and the old woman in front of me was buying a big wad of Forints. I changed mine back into GBP (£5.67 to be exact) as the old behind the counter joked that it would be ‘cruel’ if I couldn’t change them.
I walked outside and a woman walked past me shouting at her child in Hungarian.
Mi ez? I thought. What’s for dinner, szalonna and goulash?
