Photographer's Note

'Hello Tourist!' - Its my personal favourite from the series, maybe because we don't often see tourist being so obviously tourist on the 'most famous main street on TE.' While Miskolctapolca, the spa and holiday part of the town is popular among Slovakian, Polish, Romanian and Ukranian tourists, they don't often come to the downtown, since they came for the Cave Bath or one of the spa resorts and get everything they need there.
Or maybe because the officer supervising the scene made me remember the song of a Hungarian rock song about the socialist times: 'its a nice and clean house with decent people, the warden sees everything.'Plates stating that a house was nice and clean was a thing back then. It was a promotion from the sanitary authority for houses that fitted the sanity regulations. And of course the wardens - often being officers of the state security - saw if someone did something that went against the morals of a socialist man. - Of course being only three at the time of the change of regime, I only know it from stories and documentaries on the topic.
