Silent Vlog — Riding the Tram

It’s Monday, which means it’s time for a silent vlog! Remember — the purpose of a silent vlog is to let you see things through my eyes without any biased input from me. In this vlog, I ride the tram to let you see some cool Budapest sights and experience what it’s like to be on one of these popular streetcars that I ride every single day.

Blooper: A creepy guy came over to me asking for money. A lot. And he wouldn’t shut up. The video could only hear the end of the conversation.


Some Hungarian which appears in this video —

nem — no
hogy — how
következik — next is [The next stop is…]
van — he/she/it is
nincs — there is not
végállomás — the end of a tram line; the last stop
viszontlátásra — I hope to see you again
szia hello/goodbye
bocsi — (informal) excuse me; hey
