Kristof and I have had a couple good conversations lately about the homeless here in Budapest. Coincidentally, there was an insightful article in the newspaper yesterday on the topic, and Kristof offered to translate it. When he is finished, I’ll post the article here. I think it will catch your attention.

The Hungarian word for “Homeless Person” is hajléktalan. Literally, it means “without a lid.”

OOOOPS!! Correction: I got my terms mixed up. The word for “Homeless” is hajléktalan but it means “without refuge.” Many homeless people try to sell a small magazine on the streets in order to make some money. The name of this magazine is Fedél nélkül, “without a lid.” Thanks Kristof!
