Dr. Richard A. Van Etten: Cancer
"Please welcome to the show Dr Rick van how you doing. Thank you very much Andrew and Brittany I greatly appreciate the opportunity to be able to come and talk to your talk your listeners today. Yeah. Well, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk to us. So we're GONNA be talking about obviously cancer and how you can prevent cancer do your best to prevent it. But as I mentioned in the Intro, most likely someone knows someone who's had cancer or they've had cancer themselves even it's pretty it seems like it's touches a lot of people but can you kind of tell me how many people does cancer impact on a yearly basis? Well. Thank you for the question Andrew. The lifetime risk of getting cancer is approaching thirty eight or thirty, nine percent. So more than one in three Americans will get cancer during their lifetime. So that explains what you said that basically almost everybody is either been personally. Involved with cancer knows a close family member or a loved one that's been stricken by cancer. So some of the statistics nationwide in the United States, there's about one point seven million people diagnosed each year with cancer. And they'll be about unfortunately six hundred thousand Americans will die every year of cancer. Here in Orange County it's interesting that cancer has overtaken cart diseases, the number one killer, and as soon gonNA happen nationwide. So a very very. Prevalent disease what kind of has led to what's led to that trajectory? Why is that happening? Well, actually the the the death rate from cancer has been falling and it's been falling significantly over the past fifteen or twenty years, which is a success basically for the research that's gone into it through the National Cancer Institute and other mechanisms. But the fact that cancer is now the number one killer has actually also reflected progress in cardiovascular disease. So doing which used to be the number one killer. So we're doing a better job at preventing. Heart disease through the things that you know about treatment of the risk factors like high lipids, blood pressure, diabetes et CETERA. Right? Interesting. Okay. All right. So we got some work to do on the cancer and Kinda catch up. And, that generally, like I mentioned usually happens through education funding, which we'll talk about in a little bit What types of cancers are the most prevalent today? I know that you specialize are a believe in like blood cancers by what are the most prevalent that people run into so we can talk both about incidents, which is the new diagnosis that we have each year and prevalence, which is the number of people living with the disease at any given time. But the top four in both categories are pretty similar. So there's breast cancer which obviously predominantly affects women but also can affect men. Then there's lung cancer there's prostate cancer which obviously is a male cancer and the last one is colorectal cancer. Those are the big four. Close on their heels are diseases like skin cancer and melanoma that's particularly relevant for Orange County where we have two hundred and eight, hundred, ninety days per year rate. And after that come some blood cancers that I specialize in, which is mainly things like leukemia lymphoma and Myeloma Okay. What kind of leads to these types of cancers occurring out of those top four that you mentioned, what? What's the biggest contributor to people getting? Is it? Is it just genetics you got bad genes or something in your lifestyle or in your the world around you I guess causing it. So they're. Probably, equal contributions both from genetics and from lifestyle. Okay. When I say genetics I mean the cancer is principally in the opinion of a lot of primarily a genetic disease in the cancer cells have acquired mutations that contribute to their malignant or cancerous phenotype, their ability to grow and attack the body. Most of those mutations are acquired in other words they happened just within the cancer cell and they're not inherited. So you don't get them from your mother or your father. Now there are exceptions there are well defined cancer susceptibility syndromes the most the one that may be most familiar to your listeners is the bracket jeans Brca which segregating families particularly people, of Ashkenazi, Jewish descent that are inherited either from your mother or your father, and greatly increase your risk for developing breast cancer or ovarian cancer so that the risk for women who doesn't ever bracken gene mutation is about one about eleven percent or one in nine during your lifetime. If you inherit one of these genes, it's virtually almost everybody will get breast cancer ninety percent risk over your lifetime. So, this cancer susceptibility syndromes are very important the need. For instance when there's a new cancer diagnosis, you need to take a careful family history and in some cases be referred to a genetic counselor to determine whether testing family members is indicated. Yeah. Well, that's interesting that you bring that up because my wife actually we went through that process, and so she was found her mother had breast cancer and through that process they found out, she had the bracket gene Brac to and then and so my wife decided because they kind of give you choice like do you want to get screened? Do you not like you kind of have? Do you want to know more or or like not and stay naive to it I guess and so what I've discovered, we went through it and is interesting out of the split my wife got it and her sister didn't so the fifty, fifty there and. It. Seems like. It's I think my opinion is it's good to know because now they're just more aggressively screening her and is that typically the case when you find out about something like that, you're more your screened even more regularly than the average person should be. That's right. A change basically changes the surveillance. In it not to make it more complicated. But there are some genes like the broncos where the penetrates which means that the chance of actually getting breast cancer. If you have the have, the mutation is very high I think there it's pretty straightforward to decide whether to get screened. Right. There are other mutations that can be inherited that don't increase the risk that much increase it above the background, but it's not nearly as high and there it's more complicated to try to decide what to do about that. But. My advice to your listeners is to seek the advice of a NCI cancer center in a a qualified genetic counselor. Those are the people best qualified to help guide you through that decision making process right? Right. When you're going through like you said they ramp up the screening process if you had the genetic mutation but how does how did we get to discovering these genetic mutations I? It sounds like you kind of have somewhat of a background like you discovered or help discover this protein that was causing leukemia right and. How does that process even work? How do we make these discoveries? How do you make these? Discovery I was involved in is one of these acquired mutations not inherited, but it came about from studies done many many years ago actually nineteen sixty that showed that patients with this particular type of leukemia had an abnormal chromosome in their blood cells. And when to make a very long story short when that was tracked down, it was shown that the chromosome was actually an a Barrett. That was acquired in these cancer cells that lead to the expression of this abnormal protein. And that protein. Hasn't is an enzyme which means that it has a ability to catalyze chemical reactions. Okay and that particular reaction stimulated the growth of those blood cancer cells. So. That led a drug company, which is today is no artis to develop us a drug a small molecule inhibited the action of that protein. And that That drug which has the trade name GLIVEC revolutionized the treatment of that leukemia so that in the past everybody died of this leukemia, unless you had a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Today everybody takes a drug likely. And most people go into remission and when they do, they have normal age adjusted life expectancy. That's example would that's Therapy likely that can do to cancer right? So does this all come from these discoveries? Does it come from just? Tons of data over decades like this one you're saying, it came from research started in the sixties and this didn't have until the early nineties. Is that right or wealth the the The structure of the protein was discovered. I'm saying Circa Nineteen, eighty-four which I got involved. The drug development efforts took place shortly thereafter I'm and the was FDA approved in two thousand one. So it's been on the market now for almost nineteen years I and there are many many other efforts in other cancers that are parallel parallel that. The thing that's happened today is because of our new technology and the genomics and the ability to determine, for instance, the genome sequence very quickly that's accelerated the progress that we can make. So what took forty years from sixty two to the drug being approved now can be done in a couple of years. Wow. Everything's happening much much faster. That's awesome. That's great news for those of US living right now.

Travel To Bulgaria
"Bulgaria is a small and mysterious country. It's one of those lands that Americans just don't visit very much. It's long faced east impact in communist times it was famously subservient to the USSR. But. Of course, there's lots more to see in Bulgaria and you can learn about a fascinating culture. When you go there to Bulgarian guides, joined us in our studio to help give us a better insight and a little better appreciation of the cultural. Bulgaria. We're joined by Stephan Bush job and you're. Stephanie thanks for being here. Thank you our pleasure now. Americans we don't know as much about Bulgaria as we know about Poland or Germany or Italy, or Greece that. It's not in the news it's signing country of about seven million people probably, not not a lot of Bulgarians have emigrated to the United States like Polish people. So many know when I think of Bulgaria I think of a back in the communist times a little country that was more friendly with Moscow, than the other countries in eastern Europe in fact, your leader little sort of an communist dictator two-door shifts of Shipka He. Actually proposed that Bulgaria joined the USSR and become the Sixteenth Republic. Is that true that? Yes that's still in the early nineteen sixties shifts for wanted us to be so close to the Soviets. So he proposed to become the sixteen republic. Why so subservient? The USSR you know because as a small country, we have always tried to find our big brother because you're right there in the middle of the Habsburgs and Russia and and. The meat of all those crossroads and your. Little so easy to gobble up if you're a big giant country absolutely, but fortunately, the Soviets were in the middle of the Cuban missile crisis saw they were busy and they were not interested in having trouble themselves Khrushchev or whoever was the dictator say There's a joke in becan communist time. The biggest animal in the world was the Bulgarian pig because the head was in Bulgarian. The body was in Moscow I. Was that funny. So many years ago he mentioned the pick when you have the body of the pick of the good meat is there. So we produced Oh the good stuff food and it was expected to the Soviet. Union. So practically, this is the reason why still nowadays in Russia they remember all those fruits and very funds legal, Gary, all good stuff that came from Bulgaria. So the big shot in Moscow and wind as well. Of course, all the Bulgarian wine. Oh, the best bogere in one when Russia. Well today you don't have that problem. You've got wonderful traditional food and drink and and Yuri. What is one thing we should remember about the food of Bulgaria when we visit incredibly fresh everything is fresh. What's been out of the garden? What's IT traditional? A traditional meal I I remember some beautiful soups. You must have a salad. You must argue with Salads and a little bit of Brandy. As world it goes with the Salads. We always have the strong alcohol first, and then we go to the wine and then we go to the beer you start with the strong alcohol yes, we do. We do. Why is that Stephan? It is deep tradition. What my parents belief is that when we have a trunk alcohol to open your perceptions the food, this is the best way to taste it when you have a few sips of follow traditional. Brandy. Code. Of Akia. So when I'm cooking, if people have the strong alcohol, I can actually eat my food. It helps it helps a lot. Gary is the only country in the European Union that has this surreal alphabet I was in Bulgaria when you're on May twenty fourth, that's big celebration.

So it is really important to understand these different alphabet because this is an alphabet which helped to spread the Christianity because it's surreal religious named after Saint.

Congressional Inquiry Faults Boeing And FAA Failures For Deadly 737 Max Plane Crashes
"Congressional inquiry inquiry has has found found damning damning evidence evidence of of failures failures at at both both Boeing Boeing and and at at the the Federal Federal Aviation Aviation Administration Administration in in the the development development and and certification certification of of the the 7 7 37 37 Max, Max, the report says. Thes failures contributed to to Mac's plane crashes, killing 346 people NPR's David Shaper. The House Transportation Committee investigation finds that there was no singular technical floor pilot failure that led to the deadly 7 37 Max. Plane crashes in Indonesia in October of 2018 in Ethiopia the following March. Instead, it describes the circumstances that led up to them almost like a perfect storm, calling it the horrific culmination of a series of faulty technical assumptions by Boeing's engineers. The lack of transparency on the part of Boeing's management and grossly insufficient oversight by the FAA. The report details Boeing's flawed design of a new automated flight control system on the plane and mistakes and using outdated and faulty assumptions of pilot response, as well as a culture of concealment. Keeping information from the FAA, its customers and the pilots who would fly the plane. There's something that came out of this that's just mind boggling. House Transportation Committee Chairman Peter DeFazio oversaw the inquiry and says What's mindboggling is that both bowing in the FAA contend they followed proper procedures. And found the 7 37 Max to be compliant. That's the bureaucratic word it was compliant, but the problem is, it was compliant and not safe and people died. The report also details how Boeing employees were under enormous pressure to keep costs down in the plane on schedule. Aviation subcommittee chairman Rick Larson says misguided priorities have senior management drove a number of troubling decisions. In one case, senior management went as far as selling countdown clocks in conference rooms. Making clear to Matt employees meeting production timelines. Rather than safety was a top priority. The congressional investigation is one of many into what caused the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines 7 37 Max Plane crashes. Christine Negroni is an aviation journalist and author of the book The Crash detectives, and she says, while much of this information isn't new in the hole, what is to me astonishing about the report? Is the death of the sickness and the deep history off both FAA and Boeing, knowing that there were problems with the redesign of this airliner. And the obliviousness of both parties and recognizing that this was a problem that needed to be addressed. Another thing too grown, he finds remarkable is that a number of people did raise safety concerns about the 7 37 Max, but those were either inadequately addressed or just dismissed by bowing. Many of them never seeing the light of day of the F A. A. And that's an especially painful realization for the families of those who died in the max crashes. It angers us to see how how much going did to cover this up and how much f a A has done. To help them cover it up. Michael Stew, Mo's daughter, 24 year old Samuel arose. Stew Moa was on the plane that crashed last year in Ethiopia. He believes evidence in this report now shows that the first plane crash in Indonesia was preventable but then covering up to keep the max in the air after the lion air crash. So that it crashed again and Ethiopian killed. My daughter was unforgivable. In a statement of Boeing spokesman says the company has learned many hard lessons from the plane crashes and its mistakes. And has made fundamental changes to the company's safety, culture and protocols as a result. How's Transportation Committee is now drafting legislation to improve FAA oversight and certifying planes. Senate Committee is expected to take up its own FAA reform bill later today.

But those were either inadequately addressed or just dismissed by Boeing many of them never seeing the light of day at the FAA and that's an especially painful realization for the families of those who died in the Max crashes. It angers us to see how how much. Boeing did to cover this up and how much FAA is done. To help them cover it up Michael Stu Mos daughter twenty, four year old Samya arose to mow was on the plane that crash last year Ethiopia, he believes evidence in this report now shows that the first plane crash in Indonesia was preventable within covering up to keep the Max in the air after the lion aircrash so that it crashed again in Ethiopia and killed my daughter. was unforgivable in a statement a Boeing spokesman says, the company has learned many hard lessons from the plane crashes and its mistakes and has made fundamental changes to the company's safety culture and protocols. As a result. The House Transportation Committee is now drafting legislation to improve at a oversight and certifying planes.

Bloomberg Comes Up Big with $100M Cash Infusion in Florida
"So this was another big story from over the weekend was the announcement by Mike Bloomberg that he's going to spend at least one hundred, million dollars in the state of Florida to help Joe Biden win the state. This Washington Post story says that Bloomberg made the decision last week after seeing those numbers on Florida in seeing that Oh may be Biden's a little underperforming there. It's a little closer than we thought official. Voting starts on September twenty fourth in Florida. So the need to inject real capital in that state quickly is an urgent need. This is Bloomberg Adviser Kevin Cheeky he continues Mike believes that by investing in Florida, it will allow campaign resources in other democratic resources to be used in other states in particular the state of Pennsylvania. So there was always this fear of, Oh, where's Bloomberg's money? He got to speak at the convention, but he's not gonNA fork any over even after he said, he made this promise to keep his campaign employed in put all this money into help be trump. Personally, I was really never worried by didn't didn't really come after Mike to personally at least for too long also because they were both from New York I'm sure trump gave Bloomberg his fair share of grief during the couple of terms that Mike was the mayor of New York. City. You can tell when Bloomberg speaks whenever he goes on TV his ads were also pretty devastating, but you can just feel the vitriol contempt for Donald Trump Mike. Bloomberg is obviously a big money guy. You know he's a billionaire but even he trust Joe Biden more than Donald Trump So that should really be a warning to everyone and as Rick. Wilson always says Mike Bloomberg has more money in his couch cushions than Donald Trump has at all I think alluding to the fact that Donald Donaldson, shady loans, and he's probably not even a billionaire really when you get down to went off topic but thank goodness that is a breath of fresh air some good news for Joe Biden on the money side to with an even better August and by the way, the Biden campaign pointed out that since Calvin Coolidge in nineteen, twenty four, no Republican has won if they don't win Florida. And this year, it really is all about Florida because of trump doesn't get that one he's got to pick up a couple from either Minnesota Wisconsin Michigan Pennsylvania Arizona in those are looking shaky I mean that's really really generous because he's behind in all of them. So He needs Florida to have any chance and that's a little note to yourself if you're watching. On election night tour as the votes come in the days after in the mail. Well, we're GONNA know pretty quickly because Florida starts counting there's early. So we'll know on election night mostly with the vote is going to be. So a Florida starts going Biden were going to be in really good shape. That's when you know. Okay we might have this one.

Wyoming Doubles Down On Its Long Support For Carbon Capture
"US coal production is down to its lowest level in half a century, but the country's largest coal-producing state is desperate to keep the industry going with support from the trump administration. Wyoming is investing big to try and clean up Kohl's carbon emissions. Wyoming public radio's Cooper has more the largest utility in Wyoming Rocky Mountain power has found. It makes economic sense to start retiring. It's coal plants early, an invest heavily and renewables across the West. That isn't going over well in a state whose economy is tied to call. At a recent public hearing county commissioner can't Connolly said when a plant is shutdown, it's not just jobs that are lost by lose. Fifty percent of the taxes is just as simple. Connolly says it doesn't have to be like this coal plants in Wyoming could stick around if utilities just considered retrofitting them to capture the carbon they emit we will change how goal America. There's no doubt about it we'll get. The idea a coal plant would be retrofitted with new tack. Its emissions would be removed and then sold, but rocky mountain power says right now that technology is too expensive and not proven utilities rick, link says its decision is an economic one. Is Driven by. Changes in the heart condition even so Wyoming is doubling down on its long support for carbon capture. This year lawmakers mandated that by twenty thirty utilities produce a certain amount of electricity from coal plants using carbon capture technology ratepayers bear the expensive that the trump administration is also trying to boost carbon capture. It's passed a federal tax credit in his funding research projects. Holly crude cut oversees several through the University of Wyoming.

The problem is many others think the moment for Carbon Capture to help Cole has come and Gone Arizona State University's Klaus Lochner remembers giving presentations promoting carbon capture to the coal industry twenty years ago without that, he warned that climate change would be the industry's demise. Is it look if the comes around, you are not going to be allowed to build a new new coal plant because every bank in the country will know that they will not get their money back. So you bid or buy twenty trinite have the ability to build power plants that. Completely carbon neutral but that hasn't happened Energy Economists Rob. God. Says part of the reason could be politics the Republican Party which strongly supports coal actually may have hurt the industry by downplaying climate change climate change doesn't exist. There's no justification to develop low-carbon technologies like carbon capture. So in an ironic way, the Republicans, kill carbon capture as much as anybody else only one coal plant in the US created a successful business model for carbon capture. It's called Petra Nova in Texas, but that fell apart after the pandemic led to an oil price. Crash analysts, Dennis Wanstead with Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis says he can no longer imagine utility saying, Hey, we really WanNa do this.

"How would you rate the episode in general I? Mean we don't usually do that. Yeah, we don't would. You would you? Let's let's do it. Let's do it in terms of this being the fourth. Anthology you know loose Improv. Okay. Didn't have the improvisational feel. I, think as much. But how would you kind of stack it against the other? We'll call them inter. Dimensional. Cable. Type episodes. If we're going based off of. How much I laughed. I think the I think the anthology pieces of of all the other ones are generally stronger. I think the Bechtel test is is one of the best ones. The, the other like little the other little scenes especially in the fifth wall portion. I think a really really cool in there really interesting and I would love to see those fleshed out knowing that they they may not This is kind of sad but really that whole epic fight with snowball and versus a cat Max, and then that that panning shot from citadel of Rick's or you know, said it all morning whatever going. Skinny across you see all the the risks and you see the Aclu Zorba resort and like that that's that's really bad ass I would love to catch that. But. I think they'll. They'll be fine with whatever they end up choosing at the end of seventy episodes and they're going to do great things I I think that. This episode shows that they they're capable of creating epic conclusions in epic. You know. Moments. It's just let's let them do it. Yeah. Let's not try to create it for them in advance. Let's enjoy their creative process and the fruits of. Yeah. So so do I rank it out of those episodes I would I would for what I look for in those episodes I would probably put it. Put it forth but I put it forth because it's not as it's not that. What I fell in love with with those first three I guess yeah. I I think the the improvisational part of some of those episodes really to me makes those episodes when you can tell somebody was in a booth without a script just like saying random stuff or or or when they go really off like. Book and they're and and it to the point where they're not even like really performing anymore but they leave it in and still animated those breaks to me are some of the highlights of those episodes. So I. Didn't really feel like we got any of that I feel like this was definitely anthology and it it took a lot of really obscure ideas and jam them altogether and I think it was really effective in a great.

When they try to pull the lever on the on the console and they can't hit any buttons and they and they tear away that sticker I just thought that was so wonderfully done as a way to be like This is this is yet another. Layer inside. and. Then we see the the story train running its course around the the smiths living room as as rick and Morty. Are Getting Ready to settle down to watch some international cable. Yeah.

"It's is it just me or early making fun of the Bell Test in America wrote we rock ourselves through through morty and I don't know if she meant like were mocking ourselves a Aka women or she's mocking themselves as writers like the writers trying to build strong female characters and going so far. To just. Simplify. It to my special time heavy flow. Yeah I. I think by US I think she meant to show collectively the people making rick and Morty and sometimes the ways that they've tried to give them agency but have have fallen pretty flat yeah yeah. And they immediately follow that with. The that they have. Their two men with penises and they have agency Jesse has two penises and all the agents say. Yes, indeed. Yes. All right. So this gets us into a couple of collections of stories. I call these wants to quickies off the train. These are the glimpses that we get as rick and morty are are fighting was the story Lord. And and being thrown out of the train and and and the thrust into some different quick clips. The first one is I, just called it egg escape morty. This is something that showed up in the trailer for these five episodes that seemed like it could potentially be something really big and then was really not much of anything. Is 'cause but I, I will say and Kudos to the the animation team the way that they transitioned with the action of like in this one more trying to slide under a door, and then that transitioned him being pulled back into the train the way the way that they did that between these scenes. Amazingly done by fan fantastic stuff. Yeah. Those those transitions are worth the price of admission as far as I'm concerned I'm not not not an animator by any stretch artist by any stretch, but but those. Similar to. The season four premiere Rick Dyer repeat. Just. There are certain things and animation that just like God that that's so that's so good and that's so so talented and those transitions just like I tried pausing and slow mowing. So I could see the those how did that in? It's just Incredible to me. Of those of those clips definitely A. I love that they introduced. In Vietnam getting some kind of mind bending drug. And then and then coming back to it, then rick going someplace where he's he's created a drug and he just he's hurt so many people and then Moore's character from Vietnam comes back who is now not a Vietnam and kills them like it's okay. It's okay. Nothing's real nothing that stab remember remember core truth that you're getting beat up on a train. Classic stuff and then we moved from that that fistfight into beyond the fifth wall This is where the story Lord has them captured and we get a couple of a couple more quick scenes as he's he's tearing continuity. Straight out of the the souls of Rick and Morty The first one is is a heartwarming scene where summer goes off to college. And Rick is really really really touched by it It's. I, I I.

So quickly that you also had a VAT of acid guy unrelated to yeah. Yeah. He he's only got like four different types of village and and one of the four always has a giant battery. Bassett just it's just what he does. It's part of his style. Rick has every he has. He has a rotation, has a pattern like morty gets every tenth episode ten adventure. Every fourth villain is a there's a VAT of acid. It's just it's just the thing he does I mean I thought that was I thought it was cool. Seen Rick doesn't speak. He just communicates in Farts otherwise You know as it was, it was a good primer to kind of get you thinking about Cuda ways and then we get what was the the tease for the episode this was share on social media. Before the episode airs entitled Wreck Saves. Christmas but this is the planes, trains and automobiles. Christmas return with what's his name Google Gumi Gumby Gumby Gumby. The gooby every time I hear Gumby I think of there's those really crappy animations of like Donald Duck and Goofy, but his name is gooby. We? Spiderman Guba spider-man. I I think it's great that they're all sitting around and the train discussing the different ways that rick saved Christmas and and I. Think that the Christmas episodes of Rick and Morty. Are the greats so yeah I don't know it's nice nod to that as well. then we start to. Understand the episode a little bit more tickets please the ticket taker rips his shirt off and exposes his his gutters to to rick and Morty and After after the fight he is his his is upper half anyway is smashed outside of the train and we he finds himself in a familiar place blips in Chits where he basically takes off like a roy.

Took almost until the first ad break before you really understood that this was going to be at not a conventional rick and morty adventure and. I thought I you know I. I Love Anthologies. Anthology Shows Anthology comics I love I love very short standalone stories that have a beginning middle and end. Cool bite-size. I don't have to dedicate forty hours of my life to catch up on three seasons of ozark. I don't need to do that because it's still feels very specific and I feel like whatever whatever the net flicks situation is in your current Cova Quarantine back there I feel like maybe ozarks involved and I don't want to pick sides I watched too.

Oh you. Don't worry about it. Let's just enjoy this for the first time. Right? It is strange because there is even though it is one of these clip show type episodes they they mentioned inter dimensional cable twice they they call it out specifically in this episode I think as a way to reinforce that this is not a traditional episode. This is this season's version of inter dimensional cable. But it at has a narrative feel throughout it where..

We like to check in with you are traveling listeners here on travel with Rick Steves. Tell us where you're looking to go next and if you need a little help figuring out what to plan for he's calling from Prescott Arizona Hi Casey Hi Rick. I'm planning what I'm hopefully is going to be an epic trip to fame. I wanted to know what like small villages or towns should I make sure I see and then if I had to choose between Madrid Barcelona which one should I spend martime man okay well. Spain's a huge country and there's thousands of villages that I'm sure ordered delightful. I I gotta be honest. I don't know a lot of the villages in Spain but I'll say you want to kind of think. Of What region are you interested in. I mean the parents mountains are just fascinating. If you want that sort of Alpine Spain I mean there's a lot of traditional no culture hiding out up there. There's different regions Spain. If you go to subway sandwich shop in Madrid you might find menu with four different languages and they're all Spanish languages ages. He'd have Catalan for the people in in the northeast around Barcelona. You'd have a bask- for people in the Basque region and you'd have gallician for the Celtic people in the North West and when you travel in the northwest there are beautiful little hideaway medieval towns that are part of the Santiago de Compostela and they are the villages that people will walk to or bicycle to these days when they're doing that trek medieval pilgrimage trail the most famous villages is there the most classic and rewarding villages are these whitewashed villages in the hills down in the south and end Lucia to a lot of Americans their image of Spain really and Lucia. That's the quintessential Spanish sort of Flamingo world. The famous region in Lucia is the root of the Pueblo spunk host host the root of the Whitewashed Hill towns and you're jumping off point is the biggest of those towns that would be Rhonda. It's no secret a lot of tourists go to run but it is just just an amazing town on a gorge with dramatic bridge connecting the two sides of the gorge with the modern town on one side and an older town the other side and from there you can drive have into the hills and find these just gorgeous dramatic. Whitewashed Hill towns that were put on the top of these hills for defensive purposes so personally I would go to the root of the publicity bunkers. I've always loved that near Sa- via near Rhonda near Arcos while you're done Arcos is famous for the Spanish riding school school and also for Sherry. No you're talking about Madrid and what were you thinking Madrid and Barcelona. I couldn't decide which one I should spend more time in or maybe just forget one and spend all my time in the other. Barcelona is suffering lately because it's just too popular the mayor's actually thinking about how can we keep. I from flooding into our city. The local people are actually getting a little bit ornery about tourists changing the character of all of their their neighborhoods Barcelona's a place where AIRBNB has come in and driven up the the rents. I mean Airbnb doesn't drive it just gives landlords and opportunity to make a lot more money renting out to travelers instead of renting out to the local pensioners and so on so that drives away the local people into the suburbs and the characteristic neighborhoods are suddenly without the the local population that makes it really characteristic and instead of real produce in the markets you've got slushy isn fruit on skewers and that kind of thing for the tourists so you know you go to. Barcelona anything about about the Romblon and you think about the book career market and all that and it's still there but if you were there twenty years ago it's it's not the same thing because now it's just overrun by tourists having having said that. I love Barcelona but he really got anticipate. It's going to the streets are just going to be mobbed with with tourists whereas Madrid feels just more like a a workaday capital. Madrid good to me is you feel the pulse of Spain in Madrid beautifully. I love the architecture of the skyscrapers on the grand via and you can just trace the evolution of Skyscraper Architecture through the Twentieth Century one decade at a time as you walk down the grand via in Madrid. You've got the greatest collection of paintings anywhere in Europe at the product and and you've got a palace that used to house the most powerful king in in all of Europe into Palestinian rivals Versailles in Paris in Sean Brennan in Vienna Anna and that's the Royal Palace in Madrid you've got plenty of opportunities to enjoy the nightlife and the TAPAS and Flamenco the best Flamenco in Spain bane is famously offered in Madrid and you've got a chance. If you want to go out and see the bullfight. That's the the most visible arena in all of Spain and you've I've got tight trips from Madrid that I think are more interesting than the side trips from Barcelona within an hour. You can go to Toledo you can go to Salamanca you can go to the Valley of the fallen in El escorial the big palace of the Inquisition Palace the stern serious nonsense palace outside of Madrid. There's just I love to see in Madrid so I think I'd say if you're choosing between Barcelona Madrid. I think I'd go to Madrid well. I have to say I'm sold definitely be spending spending my time in Madrid. It's going to be my first time and all my friends have gone and told me how amazing it just wanted a little more detail. Remember in Spain. you've gotTA gotta go with the local tempo of life. Okay it's hot in the middle of the day the elite WanNa be indoors or take a nap or Siesta and then be out in the evening things are it just really hopping in the evening and there's something just wonderful about having the whole community out for the CEO in the evening when I'm doing my research for my guidebook if I'm trying to look at restaurants at noon and at six they're just empty. I mean if anything the staff will be eating but you come back at two o'clock for lunch and they start to serve and for dinner. You can have nine o'clock or ten o'clock. You'll have the dinner one thing to remember. If you go early it'll be terrific in the restaurants which is not bad. It's it's easier. It's a a little more relaxed and then if you go later it won't be touristy at all. It'll be filled with local. The same restaurant can have two different personalities and for a lot of trustee. You have to be pretty pretty aggressive. If you're trying to get served at ten o'clock all the local people are in there and and they get favored by the wait staff because they can speak directly and they know they're. They're just good solid customers. Customers whereas tourists are going to be kind of maintenance and everything so not to say you shouldn't go there but if you go in the evening you're going to have to know a few Spanish words and you're GonNa have to Beller it up to that bar and demand end some service. If you're going to get any respect I like the challenge I think all the Oh that route go for it. That's so good. Also there's a lot of sort of entrepreneurs now that are into different kinds of travel experiences. I think wherever you're going in Spain if you go to tripadvisor type under the city and then go to things to do I do not take very much serious consideration of eating and sleeping places in trip adviser but I really like the things to do section because then you can see. There's a cooking school cool. Are there's a a walking tour or oh. There's a some sort of a special experience with this or that slice of the culture anybody WHO's trying to make money in tourism. We'll have their little business listed in trip advisor things to do and you can browse through that and then you can go over to that website and take advantage of that and and that's how I find doubt about a lot of great activities while I'm in these towns year after year. I love that idea I like being more engrossed in the culture and celebrating the smaller all our businesses as opposed to the large. Oh yeah everywhere that is so important because you know the large companies they have the connections with the hotels and the gut their advertising all over the place and they're in with the booking agencies and so on but the smaller feisty little mom and pop businesses I find they are just really creative. They love their work and the we're done with that. You feel like you've got a friend in that town got to celebrate that tenacity as a small business good for you have a great time.

There's a company that I I love in Amsterdam which is called a wetland safari and wetland safari is a chance to go on a canoe ride in the polder land with a local guide who will explain to you how the detrick claimed the land and and what the little communities were like and are like today in the you know the rural countryside. It's called polder land that is what was reclaimed from the sea and the company is called Wetland Safaris. It's run by a woman named Miguel A. J. E. L. I believe but you go canoeing from village to village and you realize what these charming little towns or hamlets are like and you approach them by. Water also when you're out wonderful in when you're out on that you you realize that it's sort of a bog land and there's a we've of organic material that makes kind of a big Saad Topsoil and and under that is water and you get out of the canoe and Mai L. takes you to a little point where you can jump up and down on the side and you the whole place is like a trampoline because because you're literally on a mattress over the water and I love that and she's just a petite canoe and she takes a long pole and she pushes. Che's it through the sod and then she shoves it down ten or twelve feet because it gets through the layer of sod and it just hits water and it demonstrates this the Dutch terrain that a lot of us are oblivious to so that's a fun way to get out of the city and connect with the countryside far from Amsterdam again actually leaves from Amsterdam. You meet her behind the train station and she takes you on a public bus out her little depot where she has her canoes and and then you get on the news and you go paddling around and you get out and demonstrate this here and you get out and check out a windmill there and you get out and have a picnic lunch here and then you get out and pedal through all the ducks and then you're Beckett your spot and she takes you back dempster down. It's a lot of fun. It sounds great but that's just one of many kinds of alternatives are excursions. You can have from Amsterdam you can also go directly out to the ocean front and they're you've got beach resorts and some of them are sand dunes national parks and desolate kind of hikes on on the wide open beach and others are really really crowded and popular and multigenerational festivals on the Sand Scheveningen is a suburb of of Rotterdam and everything within an hour of Amsterdam. It seems like on on one of the trains and the fun thing about Dutch Public Transit. Is You hardly need the train sketch Africa's four times an hour trains go everywhere and everything's within thirty or forty minutes away. Everything's flat and you're out in the in the countryside and in no time and then pretty soon. You're at another another town nearby. Harlem is a great town disagreed town. Rotterdam was a big city that was bombed flat in World War. Two has been rebuilt sent in a modern way in fact. It's Nice Ace to compare Amsterdam and Rotterdam.

"Raphael fell as a really interesting neighborhood to visit to because it's a very old neighborhood. It was one of the first places when the aristocratic families wanted to start moving out of the CENTRO. They started moving into these new suburban neighborhoods right now. They feel like they're right next door. You know that's walkable between the Century Study Cassandra file but at that time they built their mansions there it was like moving out into the country and now all of those buildings they've been there for hundreds of years and now they have mechanic shops in little careers in them. It's a really vibrant neighborhood hood with lots of people walking around the street there some cool coffee shops but mostly. It's just a lot of old time places. That's a really fun place to explore on foot. If you wanted to go to some real neighborhood in a random way that was a working class neighborhood with vibrant markets and just a slice of life of urban Mexico. What would you recommend fail. L. Is a good working class neighborhood to explore as is the Santa Maria Larry Beta which is just a little bit further out from the center and if you're looking for some vivid a little slice of life what would it be. I mean I remember these old fashioned tortilla machines that were just so beautiful so rickety and they would just be cranking out endless bliss so little produce yeah definitely lots of those. I think there's a lot of places in Mexico City where you can find really long running vibrant culture. Are you know there's tons of coffee. Shops Mexico grows a lot of coffee and there have always been a great coffee culture there so that you can you know walking down any neighborhood. Even the trendiest neighborhoods are still. We're gonNA find the old coffee shop with the old man eating pundits. You'll say sweet bread and having their coffee reading the paper. Those places are everywhere wrote that again. Tina's in your moon guidebook to Mexico City you wrote about how that tell you find a little intimate corner of the local cultures going to cuffy shop. What about CHAPULTEPEC multiple pack doc is Mexico City's gigantic urban park. It's more like a forest than apart. It's a beautiful park and it's also the sight of some of the most important museums in the the city notably the absolutely unmissable and absolutely spectacular anthropology museum. That's brings a lot of tourists to to pull back to spend a day or half a day wandering through the anthropology museum but it's also worth taking a spin around the park itself which is shaded by these old cypress trees that have been there for hundreds of years and it's actually been a park since the time of the machine pretended to cheat lawn the Aztec City the Mexico City to pull apart that the rulers would go out and spend a day in the country cheer and afternoon in the country so it's always sort of been this country and then later the Spanish did the same you mean didn't just take over a bunch of grumbling barbaric humans animals. I mean they were actually civilized in Mexico when when the Spaniards came in fact the Spanish were blown away when they saw the city of Tennessee line it was enormous and orderly and it had beautiful spectacular markets they couldn't believe in fact it was all ridden by canals. Isn't that an amazing easing thing to think that Europeans conned themselves into thinking that they just were you know invading heathens and giving Christian faith when when really these were very very sophisticated societies and beautiful cities in some cases Mexico City compared to Venice at the time and it had those canals and an amazing system of government and and criticize happened to be able to go in there and because of a few quirky little lucky breaks was able to conquer Mexico yeah and a lot of what we know about the city today or about ten feet long about the Aztec city is from the Spanish chronicles. You know they wrote about it. They were blown away by what they saw. When they came to ten feet long you can learn about that that the National Museum the event apology and that's in the Chapultepec area and I'll tell you if you're going out into the countryside and going to be visiting some of the ruins and so on you you gotta see this first and if you're not gonNA get the chance to go to the countryside then you need to see also it's just it's a beautiful museum and it's so important to gain an appreciation of Pre Columbian Mexico. That's right the report about the neighborhood called a Roma well. Roma is today probably the hippest coolest neighborhood in Mexico City but it was built originally in the nineteenth century so or the very beginning of the twentieth century actually so it's also a place with lots of gorgeous architecture a lot of ECLECTIC architecture some beautiful art nouveau architecture and for a long time. It was sort of working class neighborhood but little by little it's become the hot spot in Mexico City so this is the place to go. Oh you are a foodie. The Rome is the place to go. There's really wonderful restaurants of all types great nightlife bookshops great shopping cool boutiques six this is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Julie Mead and she writes the Moon Guidebook to Mexico City and Julie in your book. You've got this wonderful list of top sites eight and Cantina culture mid the list of top quote site. Why would you rate Cantina culture right up there with all the great museums and galleries well. I think that it's a pretty unique and wonderful part of life in Mexico City. There are cantinas everywhere. CANTINAS can sort of range from a place that really is just sort of a barebones bar where the neighborhood locals are. GonNa get together and talk and play Dominos and everybody knows each other and they maybe served some peanuts to place where you can have a full sit down meal where every drink you order comes with a plate of food and some of Cantinas are even really good dining destinations nations the other well known in the city as a place to eat so it's a really low key he version. It's a nightlife sort of thing or afternoon evening place to go out and get got together but it's a very low key. It's like a Tapas bar in Spain is is it a vestige of the Spanish colonial experience well. That's a good question that I don't know the answer because because I mean you got you got that wonderful ambience you know you can just stay awhile atmosphere and fund workaday food in a Tapas bar in Spain. It sounds like you got the same thing in a Cantina in Mexico City. What's one tip to assure you fit rated in the Cantina culture well. The best tip would be to learn the lyrics some some popular songs in Spanish. That's kind of a tall order. I guess I'd say don't drink corona with lime. People don't do that Mexico. Lyon your corona. I think a lot of people going super local that you're being Super Gringo now. If you WANNA even be more locally you can drink the intoxicating drink to talk about the the Polka Polka fermented beverage made from the sap of the McGee cactus and it's been drunken Mexico since long before the conquest and it was really popular popular during the time when the machine ruled Mexico they were very upset me as people they wouldn't let anybody drink pool except for the priests and the nobleman but once they fell in the Spanish Spanish took over while everyone said great. Let's drink pool K. because it's a delicious sort of fizzy sort of slimy which sounds terrible but it's not it's delicious drink. Ah then is usually flavored with a fresh fruit gum guava mango sorte peanut flavor. It's a fermented sap of CACTUS. That's slimy and end with other fruits sounds so good but it's not as mode exploited to this. There's no big commercial production well. There can't be because pork is something it has to be drunk within a day or two of its productions so all of the Polka Mexico City is a big place to drink it because most of the Production Pool K. is in the ranch's right around Mexico. Oh City in the states around Mexico City and really it has to be pulled out of the CACTUS and fermented and within a day or two. It has to be consumed so there's no way to really export polka. Can you get drunk on it yeah. You got to drink a lot. Though it's a very low alcohol content you can feel the effects of it after usually at served actually very big glasses for that reason so you know feel it. Let's head no option. They got drunk on Pool K. Yes that's right interesting data. Eh the equivalent of a of a medieval kind of mead or something like that in Europe would be making a big comeback in in Mexico City which is becoming quite trendy. I would think vermouth and cocktails tails would be more hip but there's actually a mess drink. That's holding its own with its own burkhalter. Yeah well you get a little bit of both actually and nowadays so a traditional nope Acadia the places where they serve McKay. There are some that have been around for over one hundred years well. Those places are PULCI and nothing else and they serve it in the daytime. You know they open at ten o'clock in the morning. They're done by six. The pool is gone. That's a traditional Katya but now you can find lots of cocktail buyers that might have a pool in curtail on the Menu Julie. This has been such a great review of the neighborhoods of massive Mexico City congratulations on your guidebook the moon guidebook for Mexico City. Let's just finish with an idea where I can just I just want to kick back and be part of the parade of local life and either sit and enjoy watching it or actually be part of it on a Sunday afternoon. Where would I be in Mexico City. Well I would say the best place to go is to the CEO delivery format and then right next door to to put the pack the park because on Sundays the buzzer La Reforma is closed closed to automobile traffic. It's this big old boulevard that runs all the way through the city studded with monuments skyscrapers on either side and it runs through the park of triplet the pack and they closed it on Sundays so that people can ride bicycles. They can jog take their dog on a walk families. Go Out. There's music. It's really fun and and you get a really great Sunday vibe everybody comes out and then you can pop into the park where it's a veritable party on Sundays so really family family oriented place people are picnicking there flooding little boats on the lakes there. I think that's a wonderful place spent a Sunday so the Paseo de reform a boulevard Lavar close to cars on a Sunday were filled with people enjoying a beautiful afternoon and then from there head over to Chapultepec Park. That's what I would recommend sounds good. Thanks thank.

"Will open the phones at eight seven seven three three three rick to check in on your travel plans in just a bit but first we're finding adventures in the new world with tips for experiencing Mexico City One neighborhood at a time that's next on travel with Rick Steves. The ancient capital of the Aztec Empire is now the massive capital city of Mexico off Mexico City has grown into an important cultural and business hub. You could even didn't say the most influential city Latin America. There's more than one hundred and fifty museums gorgeous parks and some of the most vibrant markets and hip eateries in the Americas. It's a sprawling metropolis of some twenty million and it's full of surprises contradictions that make the city worth the effort. It requires to explore. We're joined now now. By Julie Mead she writes the Moon Guidebook to Mexico City. Julie fell in love with the city on her first visit some twenty years ago. She's here to help us explore Mexico City Eighty one neighborhood at a time duly. What was it about Mexico City that drew you in and what about it made you WANNA leave. Californian actually lived there for ten years well. It's it's hard to say exactly. It's the city like no other in the world and I was a young woman early out of college and I traveled there for the first time and and the energy of the place the fact that it was so close to my my home in California growing up and yet felt so different so foreign so many worlds away those things really drew me in and I wanted to feel a change in my life in that city just felt like it could bring it about. It felt powerful every time I fly there. I'm just you you connect from Houston or wherever and it's you're there in a couple of hours and you realize wow this is a completely different cultural capital and it's not even on the radar of so many American travelers so many people go to Cancun or the resorts on the West Coast and they're missing something when they get Mexico City. What's The vibe lately and what are the Challenges Challenges for the American visitor. What you're describing is true but it is beginning to change. A lot of people have recently recognised. Mexico City is a wonderful place to visit culturally culturally Colin narrowly so tourism has been taking off especially with that sort of younger hipster crowd. You've got a lot of cool bars lots of great food restaurants tons of museums and galleries a bunch of opened in the last decade so you're getting a lot more tourism than say when I first moved there in two thousand one rare you would see a tourist maybe in the centre with their backpack looking at the ruins or at the anthropology museum but now people go for all sorts it's of reasons they go to go out may go for the food they go to checkout galleries and underground poetry readings so it's definitely changed over the past twenty years now when you fly in it seems like it sprawls forever in fact it's one of my favorite views at an airplane window is coming into Mexico City because he just think whole twenty million Ryan people or whatever it is but you can think of Mexico City as a collection of neighborhoods and does make it a little easier doesn't it it certainly does it's very provincial in a way you can go from one neighborhood to another and each one feels like its own distinct city with its own community and vibe and things to do their glasses go through them because your book covers the city so well it pulls it down to size and we can deal with one neighborhood at a time first of all you have the central historical district. What is that well. That's the oldest district in the city five hundred years ago. When the Spanish arrived in the Valley of Mexico there was a little island in the middle of a huge lake and that was the Aztec City the F. penalty plan that city is what today is considered the central story for the very oldest neighborhood in Mexico City so that's where the Spanish vanish after the conquest built their own capital the capital of new Spain and they named it after the people who are living there the Sheikha people is where Mexico gets its name so that that little island became the founding neighborhood of Mexico City and it's got this beautiful old colonial architecture square this Colo.. That's does Okelo which is the main square was called the plaza my yard men throughout all of the colonial era and today it's called Zocalo because it adjoins the Cathedral resume or yes so if you if you've been to Spain. It's just it's another pleasant mayor. Every town has agreed square with the Cathedral facing it and and it just makes sense that there you would find the colonial area era palaces and chapels and grand buildings. It's a great area to explore from sightseeing point of view. Do you actually see any as tick remains he do and I think that's one of the most fascinating elements of visiting Mexico City in general right there right adjoining the cathedral which the Spanish built was at the most Holy Temple for the machine people and when Cortez Conquest did the city they raised the Masika city of ten not plan and they built their city right on top of it using the same bricks from the pyramids that they've Feld and they built over it so completely that everyone forgot where it was they forgot that the city was underneath the KISTA doors. They build right on the holy spot. We're exploring Mexico. City's neighborhoods travel with Rick Steves with Julie me. She's the author of the Moon Mexico City guidebook. Julie has spent more than a decade get into New Mexico's capital from its grand tractions to its earthy delays. You'll find web links to her work with this week. Show at Rick Steves dot com slash radio all right so you built your holy spot on top of their holy spot. That's the Zocalo and you you decorate the the big square with your colonial infrastructure and today as tourists four hundred five hundred years later. That's the number one thing to see probably but a lot of people are drawn to the What is it Alameda Central yeah well. I'll let made a centrale was the first big park in Mexico City. It was the first step public strolling park and that sort of on the western end of the central and the big attraction there in my opinion is the beautiful beautiful Palacio biggest artists the palace of fine arts within that does have Diego Rivera Mural in it a famous one that Rockefeller Commission and then threw a fit when it had communist themes in it and so they relocated it to that got palace but it's also just an amazing building a beautiful marble building and on the inside it has one of the most spectacular art deco interiors you can imagine so that's definitely worth a visit right on the element of also what colonial-era churches or their Zima pump several throughout the entire you're centrally story go and the Alameda that whole area is just replete with Beautiful Colonial Era Mansions Palaces churches a a lot of giant convents and churches were destroyed during the reforms of the nineteenth century but there still remains a religious buildings and convents all throughout the Centro. It's really fascinating fascinating and beautiful. It's one of the most captivating places in Mexico so one place that has historically been the tourist zone as Zona Rosa. What's that like these days. There's Zona Rosa has come and gone in terms of its fashionableness. It was very fashionable place to hang out in the sixties and seventies it was sort of the heart of Bohemian culture and since then it's become a little less noisy chaotic. It's right next to the salary forum. I saw a lot of business people passing through Kinda ugly end of tourism to me that the Warez neighborhood is a little more trendy. Isn't it right next to it. Yeah you know there's only Rosa has lots of architecture to but in the whereas you're seeing it preserved served in a more historical way. There aren't as many you know fast food restaurants. It's quieter. You know sort of gone that way more but that doesn't mean there aren't interesting things there you know there are some really great. Korean restaurants because that's where a lot of the local Korean population lives so there's things to explore even in places that seem like they are little down at heel now. They're still really interesting things to see. This is traveled Rick Steves. We're talking with Julie need her. Book is the Moon Guide to Mexico City and were learning just what to do when you get to this overwhelming the city when you do tackle the city neighborhood at a time. It is very reasonable to get your brain around it. Let's talk about San.

He's territory so they could actually go and pick it up and sell them as well they could have backed tracked from the Philippines and they considered that because they they were entering into Portuguese territory but the current go the opposite way and they weren't quite sure how to get back and if they had gotten back Mexico had not yet had been conquered by the Spaniards so they would have been on the west coast of Mexico and unable to cross to the Caribbean which they had control of Tour Guides Christina Dorothy from Lisbon Robert Wright who now lives in Seville are helping US celebrate five hundred years since Magellan's crew proved that you really could sail all the way around the world. There's more on our website at Rick Steves dot com slash radio just to wrap things up for the celebration and it's not a certain day. It's the next three years because that it was the duration of the voyage as travelers. What will we find Christine. Is there any celebrations what we look for. Well in Portugal. There will be not the celebration we've feel proud because he was portugeuse but we are not going to celebrate that because he's not a story call event that is for the Portuguese event historic so there's lots going on with experts and discovers but not specifically to celebrate five hundred years of Magellan and Robert in Spain Spain. We're definitely going to celebrate. Woo Hoo. Ah what will probably be going on for most of the three years is they have made a reproduction of the ship that made it back it was the now Victoria and that was the one vessel that did return and they have made a salable reproduction and it is at the dock in the port of severe and different cities around Spain and it will they've taken it around the world already but they will be going to different countries around the world and you might see it when you're in Spain because it will probably be traveling up in the Basque country as well okay okay you can actually walk on board see how the sailors lived compare the the size of the cabin where the captain slept and then everybody else left outside of really attempts to imagine what it was like from a gentleman and his guys five hundred years ago and all my traveling days have gone to civilian.

It's different from the Slavic languages around it could could you talk just very clear and slow like a teacher count one to ten in Hungarian so we can get a little dose of your language Okay H.. Kathy had them need hot thought he knew what's key lands these. There's no no dose or Einstein tray of it. We're we're we're in no mislead challenged. Oh my goodness and Monica. Is there any fun. Little tongue twisters fund well. Would you like to really hear a melody or some really tongue twister in Hungarian like for example Charlie Bunch Richer Water Metro Vancouver Chaka check check is few troubled Shag. Oh my goodness I want to hear tongue-twister say that again slowly slowly and Hungarian and then tell us what you said so Charlie Bungee Chug is Chato Gash trouble charitable Gash csonka Chad fan to torture Rag Cherokees Few troppled achieve egg and it says <hes> that <hes> in the Lilla forests the Lilla birds are singing and Lilla Lake is can be seen so practically it is just an interestingly porter attacked listener little birds actually since <hes> Hungary had just received the title that Hungary is considered to be one of the most difficult language in a word and you may wonder why you know I mean there are grammatical rules. <hes> there are exceptions read the Rose and then you learn the language so what could be so difficult well the problem is that <hes> we have more exceptions from the rules then Roussy itself so that really frustrates me when I'm trying to learn a foreign language is is this way except when it's not this way you are not the only one who is frustrated. I'm trying to find find the solution. <hes> how come that the Hungarian society is still even in two thousand eighteen is completely Hama gene probably because everybody else <hes> who had not learned the language of in the language environment. It's almost impossible to learn so they find other areas so that it has a actual impact on the budget Nadya on the demographic makeup of because your language is harder to learn than German absolutely harder to learn than any any other languages actually in the European environment. What can we learn from the Hungarian language about the Hungarian people? Does it give us any insight into the culture language sets the mind and so if we have a language which has so many unexpected twists then please don't be surprised if you feel things which are unexpected in our culture in our history in our everyday life as well if you come to our Roman Catholic coronation church and the interior area of the church is decorated Pagans Tribal Hungarian motifs and so on in other words Monica. You're saying <hes> when you walk into a Roman Catholic church it has a deeper heritage than Christianity. There is a religious undertones that survived to this day that are actually the Pagan Magyar routes. Yes and the makers just came a thousand years ago right. The Magyars are the Hungarians seven Hungarian tribes arrived in eight hundred ninety six in the ninth centuries came about twelve hundred years ago from way over by Mongolia or something like actually a whole bunch of commerce rivers area therefore we have this language sitting in the middle of all these <hes> more Western languages and it's <hes> it's part of the Finnish Hugo Rick language grew house need three <hes> there are in Finland Estonia and Hungary. It reminds me of the independent spirit. It's just hard to defeat the Hungarian spirit for the Soviet Union. The Hungarians were just the biggest problem and you actually we had to be able to have your own Goulash version of communism and so on what is it about the Hungarian independent spirit. I think the Hungarians would really want to express themselves and they don't want to be compressed one of the examples if you're bringing <hes> something unique up is how we do our bads <hes> your bed yeah so working your bid and how our bedsheets are prepared and I I'd like to share a personal experience very first time we came over to the United States of America and we went into. I don't know if it was a hotel. Someone's house we were introduced to our bedrooms and we went in and then it took us time to actually decide where we go like we lifted one layer another layer and another layer. We couldn't decide between where we go because we have where you put your body fantasies. Where do we fit in his bat setting? They're all tucked into tight exactly and then you had these sheets and then all we have is basically a cover sheet which sits on the mattress and then we have a single engle do which is top to bottom sites basically a standalone unit and it's not tax in so we can easy lift it up and then go under and then our feats are are free. We can't have our feeds compress down at the end and still still today when we go to a hotel and get up in the middle of the night. I have hard time to pull the sheet out from the bottom to freer exactly to have a Georgia practically even today even I'm putting off the don't disturb sign because <hes> the housekeeping ladies are talking beautifully my bad and every single day I'm struggling it out because I need freedom during the night so I can't be oppressed underneath the in bed sheets story sorry he does this.
