[This is a second attempt]
I'm planning on doing a bike trip this summer from Gdansk to somewhere in
Slovenia (a sea to sea ride). I don't think I'll finish, b/c I plan to
enjoy the environment along the way.
I'd like to set up any meetings, tours, site visits, etc.
For background, I work part-time at the EPA (previously worked in the
Office of International Activities, now in Region III's Chesapeake Bay
Program working on the Anacostia River Ecosystem), just got a master's
degree, and spent some time growing up in Korea when she was growing out
of her Third World clothes/status. I also have a pretty technical
background (physics) though I took a liberal arts undergraduate degree.
As a result, I have a great interest in seeing anything pertaining to
infrastructure development and sustenance: environmental,
telecommunications, transportation, commerce/macroeconomic, government
If you will have some free time in July, I'd love to come and see what's
happening in your part of the world. Please respond to this email

If you're in the private sector doing business in Eastern Europe, I'll
consider being a rolling billboard--I'll wear your t-shirt across Eastern
Europe if you can show me interesting things :-)
Thanks to everyone in advance.

If there is anyone among you who are familiar or have done research among
Hungarians living in the United States, I would like to hear from you. I
am particularly focusing on musical customs but other comments are
welcome, too. If it is easier for you to write in Hungarian, then we
can correspond in Hungarian. Thank you in advance. Looking forward to
hearing from you. Best,

<<No, szia was around at the beginning of the 70s, before those record
<<numbers started to travel. I think there vas a progression to
<<szevasz - sziasztok and than the szia form. I was learning English
<<for years and never have met the "see ya" in any films etc, before
<<I came to England. Hello is different, it is one of the few
<<words which natives throw at Tourists not really knowing how to
<<use it, I experienced this in other not-English speaking countries.
<<Same way in Hungary, it has been acquired willy-nilly.
The "szia" form is much more commonly used than "sziasztok," and many Hungarian
remain a bit uneasy using the plural form. I think "szia" came first, not in
the progression the writer mentions. The move from the "szE" in "szevasz" to
the "szI" in "szia" seems to be a major vowel shift, a shift not commonly made
in a single generation. Are there any professional linguists here?
Young Hungarians in the 1950's were enthralled with American rock and roll musi
(as were those in England and other countries.) The song "See Ya Later
Alligator" comes to mind. Even though it may have been illegal, American Rock
music was heard in Hungary in 1950's on Western European Radio, VOA and RFE.
The Hungarian film "Time Stands Still" documents this era and this music very
well. James Dean became an icon in Hungary, even if American films were forwne
upon. James Dean said "See ya" a lot.
I believe that "See ya" came into Hungarian just as willy-nilly as "Hello." I
also find that even the English use "See ya" from time to time in their films.
Stop and listen.

All right, I was a little foggy waking up this morning. But ... all of my
Cherokee friends seem to start off their greetings with a hearty "Siyo!",
and all of my white friends seem to end their encounters with a hearty
"Seeya!" -- Have we gotten it backwards, again? :-)
