In this picture I can see two people sitting in a car. On top of the car there is a sign that tells me that this is a driving school car. The man on the left must be the driving instructor. He has a clipboard in his hand. This must be for grading the performance of the student. The girl on the right is driving the car. She is young, so she must be the learner driver. They are both wearing seat belts, which is very important. They are both smiling, so I think the instructor must be a sympathetic and nice young man.
This is a picture of a live concert. The singer is on the stage in front of a huge audience, but there are no other band members, although the drums, a piano and all other music equipment is there in the background. Music, festivals, concerts and dancing are all important parts of the Hungarian youth culture. The streets of Budapest are filled with young people even in winter and on weeknights. The city center of Pest is filled with alternative pubs and dance clubs, lots of them in rundown old buildings ready for demolition. There is also a big artistic life. The Hungarian theatre and cinematography have very many fans. There is a new generation of film and drama directors, other artists who are more and more acknowledged outside Hungary as well. There is also a very thriving underground art culture, which embraces all branches of art. It is represented, for example, by a variety of summer music festivals, like the Sziget Festival, which has truly outgrown itself and there are almost more foreign guests attending it than Hungarians. I could also mention the numberless exhibitions and visual and other kinds of design projects, numerous modern dance performances and so on. Unfortunately, I still feel that only a certain subculture takes part in these entertainment possibilities. The average youth spends the most of his or her time writing messages on their mobile phones, staring at the TV or cruising the Internet. Their whole social life evolves around the net and it is through it that they socialize and entertain themselves. Youth clubs, for example, do not seem to have any use anymore, because if young people go anywhere, if they leave their world of the Internet and satellite channels, it is to go to a huge shopping mall cinema, occasionally a disco. What is very sad, though, is that wherever they spend their free time, almost all Hungarians start drinking at quite an early age and the majority also tries drugs and smoking. The exception might be the young sportiest who have a variety of good sport clubs to choose from.
