"We, Hungarians are well-known for our hospitality. May I here ponder on a sentence from yesterday’s dinner speech. Not even the 40 years of Communism had the chance of getting rid of the greeting 'Welcome'. It could not expel this expression from the Hungarian language, the literal translation of which is 'God has brought you here'. This is a saying with some very strong and deep meaning. Whenever a guest arrives, or whenever we meet somebody, we believe that this is not mere coincidence, but there must be some providence in the background."
