"Cope was received by officials from the Australian, Mongolian and Kazakh embassies upon his arrival. Csongrád County Council chairwoman Anna Magyar said in a welcome speech that "Cope's enterprise could set an example to all Hungarians, as this is a triumph of willpower, which sends the message that one can delve into the past to gain strength." Park director Gábor Horváth announced that a garden paying tribute to world travellers will be established.” –caboodle.hu
