The Bevásárlóközpont

One evening during the study abroad in Delft, I was hanging out with my Hungarian friend Csaba looking at one of his books that was written in Hungarian. I picked out the largest, most complicated word that I could find and asked him what it was and how it’s pronounced. I chose bevásárlóközpont, which roughly translates to supermarket; ever since then, it has served as an inside joke between us, but on a deeper level it was rather apropos that that was the word I picked – it never ceases to amaze me how much can be learned about a culture through a simple trip to the supermarket / supermercado / bevásárlóközpont.
