Csíkszereda Musings

My life in and around Csíkszereda, also known as Miercurea Ciuc.


Posted by Andy Hockley on 4 December, 2006

Over two months after his death, reported by me back at the beginning of October, a British newspaper (The Independent) has finally got around to printing an obituary of Sütő András. Better late than never, though, and it is well worth reading.

    You’ve been tagged one book, Andy. Read the full story on my blog and enjoy.

    Thanks for that.

    A little clarification, please… is yours a Hungarian family? (Obviously, yes, but even the obvious is often wrong.) 🙂

    The short answer to that is “yes”. There’s a longer answer though which will form the basis of a post sometime in the next couple of weeks.

    Sorry, that’s not very helpful (and not one of the four of us have a Hungarian passport, so make of that what you will)

    Another Transylvanian who should be famous:
    Körösi Csoma Sándor, 1784-1842
    In 1819 he walked from Nagyenyed to Turkestan looking for the origins of Magyars.
    He discovered Tibetan civilization, stayed in a Buddhist monastery for years and wrote the first English-Tibetan dictionary.
    I found all this information in a little book by Edward Fox: The Hungarian Who Walked to Heaven.
    Fascinating read!
