Angol ruha – by the kilogram

Hungarians do it differently

  1. There are several items still in my wardrobe from the "kilo bolt".

    The last were purchased in 2008 at the Pest end of the Szabadszág Híd. What I bought then, at an incredibly cheap price, were not English but expensive German and French clothes.
    I did not buy these by the the kilo as I would not have had enough space in my suitcase.

    The shops in the centre of Budapest are geared up for tourists and offer indiividually priced items.

    A nice trip down memory lane . Thank you.
