Hungary had municipal elections very recently. Citizens of cities and villages have decided who will be the decision makers that represent them in the next five years. Due to the nature of every election there are winners who (supported by the logic of the election law and by the number of votes)...

Anna, my 5-and-half-year-old daughter spent a night at Magda, Anna’s 7-year-old best friend. After a pleasant evening, dinner and a bath, once Magda’s mother started to read a story for them, Magda started to cry. No one understood why she was crying and no one could calm her down.
