This may need some explanation here. I am not the emperor who has just run away from the local nut house. This is an annual festival held usually on the third week of July. Combined with a re-enactment activity, it is located in Dunaszekcső, a village where the Romans used to have a military fort. Kids come here as well and practice all sorts of Ancient craftsmanship while they also dress up like Romans. Here is a picture of the event with a group from Slovakia (they also have a Roman fort):

 And some (late) Roman soldiers:

 It's always a cool thing to participate.

Great to put names to faces as our Local Guides Connect moderators!

 

But, why aren't there any Connect moderators who are women?! There must be women Local Guides who are extremely active on this forum?

Thanks @KarenVChin. As you may know, most of the "Google Moderators" are women, so womens are many steps ahead
