The only time I have been fined (and I did deserve it) I got a paper

The police can find a reason, once they look for it.

The Fines are always legal, and I don't even argue that.
All I'm saying, that to stop a vacationer every 35 miles is
not most desirable, and that On the Spot Fines are corruptive.

Can anyone help me with some phrases I found in an American book I'm
trying to translate and I think are Hungarian? Well, I don't know if
the spelling is correct but here they are:
"kitchi lofass a shegitbe" and "minghe morte"
Thanks in advance

Well, I, too, find those seemingly random and arbitrary traffic checks
unnerving, especially when accompanied by rude behavior.  This is one of
the reasons I like to rent my cars at the German airport; the Hungarian
police does seem to be more considerate with foreign cars.

On the other hand, I was told that those traffic stops are to a large
extent intended to put a break on car teft which experienced a major
explosion since '89.

The on-spot payments may also have some excuse in the very primitive
banking system there; most transactions are still in cache.  They also
don't trust people to show up later at a court.  Not to mention
foreigners who could leave the country before such traffic infractions
are even filed in some computer.  So they have a long way to go.

+ - Talking about movies ... (mind) VLASZ  Felad: (cikkei)

I am still vaiting somebody's answer whether the new Madonna movie
(Evita) was indeed shot in Budapest, that city substituting for Buenos

The other thing I wonder about is if the "English Patient" is a Canadian
or British movie.  It certainly does not "feel" American and with
the exception of Willem Dafoe, I don't recall any known American actor
in it.

This is utter nonsense. Don't make assertions about subjects which you
have no knowledge of. I consider your assertions as a rationalizations
of the fact that you are 'still' speaking a 'German dialect' at home.

I cannot count the number of times I have flown MALEV -- on Tupelovs
mostly.  I have never had any problems beyond the incredibly small
amount of space provided in the overhead lockers on Tupelov planes.  As
most people seem to get on with HUGE hand baggage these days, it does
cause a problem (the lockers are only about 8 inches high, if that).
Also, MALEV does give you the use of the new terminal.  I have to agree
with previous postings regarding the food.  It is always the same
unimaginative mixture of slices of salami, hard bread rolls, strange
salad and quails eggs or slices of chicken eggs.  The strangest thing of
all, though, is the Hungarian habit of clapping loudly upon landing.
This must relate to earlier times, when landing was a true feat.
However, there seems to be no need for it now.  I have had great flights
in and out of Budapest and no problems on landing.  In fact, the worst
flight I had in Hungary was on Air France!

They have gone.  I only flied once with the Tu-154 and it was a char-
ter flight. On Budapest Zurich Budapest route, always a Boeing-xyz

Yes, and very little. I could eat the double. Somebody criticized the
wines earlier. I had to switch to wines because there are no anymore czech
or hungarian beer, just German pisses. The red wine is drinkable, in spite
of the fact that it comes from Kiskoros or Kecskemet which is not a
quality-wine  region. Au contraire.

It must be a stupid Swiss or German habit 'cose they always do
it. In our case it is somewhat understandable, because I go with
the evening flight which has a direct connection to Middle East so
we are full of ortodox Jews (they used to pray just before the flight
on the airport, I always keep my finger crossed to them not to punch
their head to the wall), and terrorism comes into one's mind and happy
that lived through the flight without highjacking or a bombing. ;-)
