Today, with the world slowly becoming a ‘global village’, one of the current debates analyzes the relationships between Nation-States, culture(s) and human groups. The subject of this section, aims to review the Hungarian culture from an ‘international eye’, considering that our group of new anthropologists consists of people coming from different parts of the worlds (Albania-Macedonia, Ecuador, Egypt, Georgia, Hungary, Indonesia, Mexico, Mongolia and Philippines). We will present our stories and experiences while living in Budapest and discuss our perspectives on the local people as well as the Hungarian society. What can a foreigner observe for the first sight? And how does these first perceptions transform through time? What makes this place particular and what are the similarities/differences with other places? Our questions take various turns starting from asking ourselves if it’s possible to undertake the challenge of anthropologists to provide objective pictures of the reality and what surrounds us? Finally, we hope that this section will help us understand and interpret contrasting approaches to cultures and Hungarian culture viewed from several prisms – political, social, economical and religious.
