I have to second Charlie Hook's comments about the festival in Hungary.  ]

The Boondockers were there last year in 2004 & we had a great time.  We did 
5 concerts from one end of Hungary to the other.  Tamas had everything 
wonderfully organized.  The music at his festival was superb, including his 
Bohem Ragtime Jassband.  There is also a young 15-year (probably 16-year old 
by now) trombone player there who is very good & will someday be a jazz 

At a restaurant we saw a phenomenal Gypsy band.  They could play anything. 
The food was wonderful.  For 5 of us, complete meals, desserts, drinks, tip, 
was about $90.

As I remember, the very nice hotels ran about $20 to $30 a night.

The country was beautiful and the people were very gracious & friendly.  We 
would go back in a heart beat.

I do encourage anyone wanting a great, inexpensive vacation  good Jazz, to 
visit Hungary during the festival.
