4th day, Saturday (1/4): Preparations for the wedding
The great day has arrived, the day of Agi’s wedding. In the afternoon she is going to swear permanent allegiance to Gόtzy Gyulának in the local church. The whole morning guests have been arriving, whom Adi has provided with food and Gabi with drinks. During that time the beautician together with the co-operation of the bridesmaids have tortured Agi.
In the Silver Carp. Zsuzsi had ‘gulyás’ in ’bogrács’, Patri ‘scnitzel’, the rest of us ‘fogas’ (a type of pike-perch from lake Balaton) in tarragon sauce.
After having failed to solve the problem there was still time to relax with a ‘short’.
In the background Adi is watching that the men do not overstep the line.
Ági, Adi’s cousin, has arrived to help watching over the men
The ‘Gang’ has arrived to make Ági even more beautiful for the wedding.
Poor Ági! You have to suffer for beauty’s sake.
No, no! I am not trying to strangle my cousin. He wanted me to tie a Windsor knot, which is not so well known in Hungary.
Having got tired of unsuccessfully embracing Gabi, I decided to tie the knot on myself and then transfer it onto Gabi.
First attempt: put it on like a noose.
In the meantime the first guests have arrived and sat down to lunch.
The two bridesmaids have come down to join the guests. Is Ági’s torture coming to an end?
Ági has reappeared alive but still rather pale and bemused.
More guests have been arriving. The women tuck in to the food, ...
... while the men need something more substantial.
