Bali … Ritual Trance Dance Exhibition … Photos of Gill Marais – Ferenc Hopp Museum @ Budapest

Might have had slipped visiting the Bali… “Ritual Trance Dance” Exhibition, yet still have a couple of days to make up for a visit to the Ferenc Hopp Museum – Budapest. The exhibition is to close on January, 30. 2022.

Bali, an Indonesian island, began to be promoted as a tourist paradise in the Netherlands in the mid-1910s and has been a popular destination for travelers and vacationers ever since. By the early 1930s, the beautiful tropical island had become a world-famous tourist destination that contemporary world stars wanted to see. Charlie Chaplin, for example, “fled” to Bali from the achievements of Western civilization in 1932 to find a renewal in traditional arts.

In the 1930s,  were no longer a rarity in Hungary and at that time, thanks to the travelers, could already read in Hungarian about the exciting culture of Bali’s “earthly garden of paradise”, its enchanting and mysterious, often strange, transdances.

The photo exhibition at the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts presents to the public a little-known side of the island of Bali from the perspective of two travelers – by both women. One of them arrived at Bali in the mid-1930s, the other in the turning of the 20th and 21st centuries. They did not know each other, but, with nearly a hundred years difference, both were receptive to the same phenomena in Bali.

Gill MARAIS arrived to Bali as a photojournalist in 1988, and spent much of her life there. She created captivating photo series of the island. A selection is presented at the exhibition. These dances are important means of communication with the world beyond our visible world, and include elements that sometimes might seem uncanny to the uninvolved viewer. The Hungarian public already had the opportunity in the 1930s to learn about traditional dances that represent the eternal struggle of good and evil. These dances are also important means of fighting against malefic powers and keeping them away.

Ilona ZBORAY came to the archipelago in the mid-1930s to visit her elder brother, who was working and living there for a decade and a half. She also aimed at exploring the mysterious tropics. In the present exhibition visitors can read her contemporary accounts on, among others, the very same trance dances that Gill Marais captured in her photographs in the early 21st century.

Exhibited texts and photos presenting trance dances come to life in an abridged version of the documentary titled “Sacred & Secret”, directed by contemporary Basil GELPKE.

In Kashmir Valley 125-y-old church opens again for prayers.

With less than 1,000 Christians in the Kashmir Valley according to official estimates, St Luke’s Church was shut down for prayers before the onset of militancy in Jammu and Kashmir. The church remained abandoned for decades until 2016 when the Christian community approached the J&K administration.

With Christmas around the corner, a dozen people gathered in Srinagar on Wednesday and offered prayers inside the 125-year-old St Luke’s Church — for the first time in over three decades.

With less than 1,000 Christians in the Kashmir Valley according to official estimates, St Luke’s Church was shut down for prayers before the onset of militancy in Jammu and Kashmir.

The church remained abandoned for decades until 2016 when the Christian community approached the J&K administration. The renovation work has started last year, halted for a while due to the pandemic, and restarted a few months ago.

Inside the  Church there is a library and people used to come and read there. But this was for the first time since the 1980s that prayers were held here and the church bells rang.

The church is being revamped with a budget of Rs 90 lakh as a Srinagar Smart City project under the Center’s Smart Cities Mission. There are no seating or heating arrangements in place yet. Therefore was no Xmas mass held this year.

The St Luke’s Church situated in the foothills of Koh-e-Sulaiman or Shankaracharya hill which was built in 1896 by Dr Arthur Neve and his younger brother Dr Ernest Neve, who were with a missionary hospital that mainly provided treatment to TB patients. The hospital and the church were built by British engineers. In the 1960s, the doctors handed over the hospital to the J-K government. The main reason for the closure (in the 1980s) was that the Christian hospital staff moved out of the Valley.

Winter Season – Recreation in India – Health & Ski Resort.

Kashmir

While the pandemic played a huge part of poor tourist numbers in the Kashmir Valley, after two years Kashmir welcomes tourists back with week-long celebration to ring in the 2022 New Year. Many may know and most probably many are aware of Kashmir itself giving a splendid and panoramic view of the Himalayas.

The celebrations began last Saturday, on Xmas, at the twin tourist resorts of Gulmarg and Pahalgam.
The series of celebration will end on the year’s last night 2021.
Normally, celebrating Xmas was usually for a day and then New Year for another single day.
This time, holding a grand weeklong festival, organizing it to send a message, welcoming hosting the tourists in the valley to visit Kashmir.
While the pandemic played a huge part in the lower tourism numbers in the Kashmir Valley, experts realized it has helped to revive winter tourism @ Gulmarg.

Gulmarg

After two dismal winter seasons, Gulmarg has witnessed a heavy rush of tourists coming to enjoy the winter sport activities this year. The ski resort of Gulmarg has the festive look from Saturday as it marked a white Xmas. While hotels and buildings are illuminated, a musical program enthralled the tourists attending the celebrations in large numbers.
Last year, most adventure hunger tourists couldn’t go to Europe because of the travel ban caused by the pandemic. The local Winter Sports Association brought to life by discovering the slopes of Gulmarg – the ski capital of India. Thus the locals spent their holidays there. The ski slopes of Gulmarg match any ski slope of Europe and are found inexpensive also. Perfect place to relax, recharging at the beauty of Kashmir this year as well.
Less tourists visited the valley in the three months of summer tourism season than in November when 125,000 tourists arrived to Kashmir and most of them headed over to Gulmarg. Xmas celebrations are also held at the Pahalgam health resort in South Kashmir.
Expecting a huge rush and congestion at Gulmarg this year, the J-K Tourism department has already planned to open two more tourist destinations @ Sonamarg and Dodapathri for winter tourism this year.
(Travel restricted to these destination COVID-19 test required on arrival)

Last Rays of Summer @ The Lake Balaton

Balaton Circle – “Taste the Circle!” … This year’s first event of the “Kostold Körben” – “Taste Around” wine & gastro festival with restaurants, wineries was held in a worthy location … where else … than at the middle of Lake Balaton, on the ferry between Szántód and Tihany.

GasztroFerry gave gastronomic presentations within 10 restaurants and 10 wineries out of almost 50 members of the Balaton Circle. Find out what flavors, scene, experiences and programs awaited the invited guests and media representatives.

We were one of the One Million passengers on the ferries on Lake Balaton!

In recent years, September has also become a summer month, and it is during this period that Lake Balaton shows its most beloved face. There is no more mass tourism, so they can deal with the guests even more and organize a quality program that promotes the region and the restaurants of Lake Balaton. The goal is to even out the often extreme fluctuations in terms of the number of guests, and to allow entrepreneurs in the region to plan with a year-round opening time. Also added…Many new quality restaurants have opened around the lake this year not only for local businesses, but for the interest of all of them to make Lake Balaton not just a weekend destination. In the future, travel decisions will not be determined solely by the weather report, as in all circumstances and every month, guests will find the right place to visit where programs, attractions and gastronomic experience are in favor around Lake Balaton. With the services and local products of the members of the Balaton Circle, they contributed in making Lake Balaton one of the outstanding gastronomic regions of Hungary – told Lajos Szilágyi – President of the Balaton Circle.

Alíz Markovits – CEO of Veszprém-Balaton 2023 Ltd., spoke about the framework of the European Capital of Culture 2023 project, it had already been recognized in the tender phase that only the region and Lake Balaton could achieve outstanding success. “This aspiration is confirmed by the fact that more than 103 settlements have already joined, and together with them, they can support the aspirations of the Balaton Circle with diverse cultural programs”

“This year celebrating the 175th anniversary of the BAHART was pleased to join the initiative of the Balaton Circle. During the autumn season must be filled with meaningful programs and quality services, which include wine, gastronomy and shipping.” – emphasized Gábor Veigl, CEO of BAHART.

A total of 26 restaurants, confectioneries, wineries and brandy distilleries of the Balaton Circle were presented at the Autumn Opening GastroFerry event. All dishes were freshly prepared on portable hotplates. Participants could get a taste of the yummy finger-food and delights.

“Taste the Circle!” The fleet was divided into two parts, serving on one side were the gastro delight and on the opposite side the wines, Pálinka and gin.  There was an abundant supply of wines and Pálinka. Wineries such as Attila Hajdú – Olaszrizling ⋕1 from Fürjes Winery. The winemaker. former goalkeeper later found his future occupation in hospitality – deals with wine production and can be reach at Fürjes Villa PensionBalatonfüred, Pócz WineryBalatonlelle, Kemendy Traditional Champagne Workshop – Balatonfüred, Szabó and Son Wine Cellar – Balatoncsicsó, Martinosa Winery – Mount Tagyon … just mention a couple brilliant wines from a/m wineries.

An everday Q! …Wanna be loose well all who tasted the „Dare-Devil” – „Fenegyerek” selection of Pálinka from Zamárdi surely felt the succulent fruit flavors. Gábor Pach, one of the founders of the Balaton Circle, opened his pálinka distillery in 2014, but he calls it the Wellness Fruit Center. Gábor Pach has been dealing with pálinka over12 years, but he would not have thought at all that he would moor in this area, in fact, he didn’t particularly like pálinka. Then, through an old business relationship, he started working with the Zimek Pálinka Distillery and was completely enchanted by this world. He completed all the training related to pálinka in Hungary, but he actually learned a lot in practice. At the Zamárd plant he still practices the cooking of mostly fruits around Lake Balaton. Was a real pálinka oasis, on the spot to taste almost complete offer of Fenegyerek pálinka and Gin … such as: blueberry, apple, married with apple+raspberry, peach, quince, grape, grape+late cherry. Every sip was exploding and powerful. Tasted a couple and must say Gábor Pach’s pálinka deserves to be known not just in Hungary and/or Europe but overseas as well. Succulent fruit world – wizard of man.  The COVI-DINKA pálinka within the series of “Dare Devil – “Fenegyerek” bombastic within 73% Alcohol. It is a booster of mix fruits. Furthermore, it is so strong that could probably kill the COVID as well :-). A guy who tasted the „Dare-Devil” „Fenegyerek” pálinka said „Leaps and bounds better than anything in showy boutiques or that you can find in a store. We made sure to get a few extra bottles to take back to Texas this time.”

The invited guests on board the ferry were invited to sample the region’s traditional and flavors.  On board the John’s Pub (Restaurant in Keszthely) served a mini mangalica burger with all the goodness of flavors, sweet potato bars, celery salad and various homemade sauces. Tasty cold appetizer were amazing, the salmon trout with beetroot remula and wasabi salad. Next to it, the Lavender Terrace – Balatonvilágos offered pistachio duck liver on top “ice cream” with a cake stick. The sweet tooth lovers made their day as the taste buds felt like being in heaven tasting the MóniSüti Confectionery – Gyenesdiás. The guest tasting plum pie and “Rákóczi” cottage cheese cakes along other sweeties. Walking along the fleet the eye caught the sight of the catfish ceviche of the Vocational Training Center – Siófok – could not resist offering their avocado slices, decorated with sprouts and burnt dough donuts and the pear-chocolate cream dessert.

The “Taste Around!” Lake Balaton following stations of the wine & gastro festival series will be on  October, 9. 2021 – Siófok, November, 6. 2021 – Kövestál, December, 12. 2021 – Balatonfüred, January, 29. 2022  – Zamárdi, February, 12. 2022 – Keszthely.
