This is interesting. Thanks for starting this thread. What about folks who wee born in Hungary but left at an early age? I, for example, left in 1956, at 5 years of age.

actually I tried it 2 times and I wouldn't like to live there is what I can say after those 2 tries, well, the second one was like "I don't really want to" anyway.

place where I am living is paradise on earth for me. why would I change that for a society that is conservative to the bones which in turn is my nightmare?

I emigrated once from a conservative society, why would I now go back to another one even worse one?

also, you need loads of money to live in BP. unless you want to live a very basic life. then, if you don't show your wealth all the time, you are pretty much looked down at. not my cup of tea.

4000 euro more like.

with 2000 you are a king in Berlin, not in BP.

basic life = bread and water. and a rat's hole as appartment.

good about Berlin? basically everything.
cultural offer like in new York, at the prices of BanglaDesh. you can do wahtever you want, nobody would look at you strangely. best nightlife.
good restaurants at afforadble prices. (f.ex. a 1-star Michelin restaurant charges 80 euro for a 6-course menu here while in Munich you'd pay 150 for the same). people from all over the world, including loads of hungarians, brazilians. almost no Berliners weed is basically legal. wildlife in the middle of city centre (boars, foxes, rakoons etc galore)

Floripa? nah not this time. been there last time. now it's Rio, Bahia, Piauí, Sao Paulo. want to show my "homeland" to my gf who has never been there.

however, Budapest has its bright sides too. I am just a bit frustrated about some things going on there. esp the right-wing and racists coming up big time. the mentality of lying, stealing, cheating whereever you can. weed is anything but close to legal. hell, now they punish you even when you drink beer on the street. america I can hear you. :thmbdown:

well maybe I overreacted with the 4000. but truth is, BP is more expensive to live in than Berlin.

but Stuttgart? now come on, seriously.

why do you want to leave Zagreb so badly?

You are a Brazilian now? Traitor. So, what's Brazil like?
bad luck you are not EU. otherwise you could go wherever you want. p

that wildlife thing is 100% true. especially foxes. they are like rats, everywhere. but very cute. and clever, too.

Brazil best country.

I have always been a honourable brazilian. p

I have had enough of the catholic church, the nazies, the corruption, the fake patriotism, the incredible idiocy of the common people, and a lot of other things/reasons.

And anyway, what's wrong with Stuttgart? It is a lovely city.
so Croatia is similar to Hungary

as for Stuttgart, I don't want to insult our 3 members from there, so I rather keep my mouth shut.
