True, the good thing is the older people usually get the good meds, that will put a smile on anyone's face!
The 27% Vat tax is really high and is a turn off to buy items at times here in HU.
We shipped over a few things but of course many useful things we just didn't bring and don't care to replace here in HU.
I personally feel I am living in the rough here in HU, no reason for it really other then I do not care to invest here any longer, don't wish to buy any more expensive household items because I may find myself reselling or giving them away sooner then later.
Thank goodness my MIL left me allot of housewares, furniture and all, down side is almost everything has that old "commie" feel to it, everything is from the 1970's.
In fact we saw a very similar cabinet in the National Museum, one I use daily here in our flat.
Maybe it's time to buy something more 2016 and not 1972.
I can tell my heart is not into buying new things here in HU so it's time to think it over, easy to get comfy and not go forward with big issues like moving away and staying away.
I know almost every Hungarian we know from my next door neighbor to the local grocery clerk ask us why in the world we came to HU from the US. Grass is always greener...
