Xpat Community Ezine / Thursday 26 January 2017
Dear Member, first for your interest is a note about recent Xpat events which served as bridges between the international community and Hungarian culture.

The main article below is a colourful example of how expats and locals joined together to raise HUF 8 million for charity, whilst celebrating the life of a poet via whiskey, haggis and dance.

Another Robert Burns inspired event was held this week by The Scottish Mission in Budapest, which celebrated its 175th anniversary last year and is also a great example of a bridge between cultures. The Caledonia Pub and Brody Studios also put on local Burns event. Last night the British Ambassador to Hungary hosted an cosy celebration at his residence to commemorate the life and works of Burns - click to see who was there and some of what went on.

Finally for now, it’s worth mentioning that the Xpat Networking event last week also served as a bridge between expats and cosmopolitan locals, with fine Hungarian wine, dance and music enjoyed by a good group of folks from all over the world - follow this link to see pictures of the action.

Now here's hoping you like what's included for you below.
Yours with kind regards, Stephen@XpatLoop.com

It’s that time of year: freezing temperatures, men in kilts drinking whisky, bagpipers, and the customary haggis. Yes, it’s the fabulous Burns Supper at the Corinthia Hotel. And this year was no different, we were treated to some wonderful food and drink, dancing courtesy of the Budapest Scottish Country Dance Group, and on the local front, some magical Transylvanian folk-dancing. more »
