“Halaszle” – The journey to find warmth

The rain brings the emotions without its shape, perhaps, can call it a nostalgia, regret a bit more regret. Last night sitting looking at the rain, listening to the rain in the window, in the head show up a thousand words “if” and then back to reality, each “if” like a bubble shattered, left on The face of the dumbfounded expression of a man who just tries to think of things that he has never grasped. That feeling, not pleasant at all.

But for some reason, it is still an integral part of our lives, and it is uncomfortable, but otherwise, we will not be able to see our choices. Where and how we should cherish that choice.
Whenever there is a psychological problem, I usually find a corner of the West Lake, not sure why, just look at the lake slightly ripples, look at the new city is rising after the mist early morning mist , breathed the fragrant lotus leaf is strange, feel the gentle stroke of the lake wind is the heart as much peace of mind. West Lake for himself is like a friend who is self-identified who will always find when in heavy luggage.

Back to the Hungarian memories, referring to the West Lake, reminds of Lake Balaton in that land – a lake so large that the people of this country consider it their sea (because Hungary has no coast). And to mention Balaton, must refer to Halászlé – Hungarian typical fish soup. Hungary is a country of rivers and lakes, so the use of freshwater fish in food processing is deeply ingrained in the Hungarian tradition and excels in water-based dishes as soups. Halászlé fish. Traditionally, Halászlé was cooked by the river, in large cauldrons and cooked with wood by fishermen and fish cooked whole, whole, and tailed with round bread called Zsemle.

Fat and sweet fish, Paprika Paprika is very strange mouth. The fish was immersed in the characteristic red and warm taste of the paprika, wrapped in a thick soup of potato paste, which gave me a feeling of fullness that could dispel the mood. The mundane life that brings with it what we do not expect. Possibly, Halászlé is an enjoyable experience that you will want to try on a rainy day full of mood.
