Today: Romania!

This guy purchased some Hungarian stamps from Debrecen 1919-1920 but used by Romania. It seems they occupied the territory.

They are from the end of WWI and few months later. Did Romania occupied/invaded/obtained by compensation this terrritory? How did Hungary recovered it?

Very briefly: after WWI, the economy of Hungary was in ruins, and the country was sinking deeper and deeper into chaos. Finally the Communists took the power in March 1919 - in a time when there was a large fear of Communism across Europe. Hence WWI winners, including Romania decided to defeat the Hungarian regime. They started a new war against Hungary, and in a few months they occupied even those parts which remained under Hungarian control at the end of WWI. (That might have been the period when this stamp was used.) For 1920 their goal was fulfilled: a right-wing government was established in Budapest, the new leaders signed the peace treaty with WWI winners, granting Transylvania to Romania. So the Romanian forces left the remaining area of Hungary.
Colour of living being is determined by the gene.

Monday: a shawarma was eaten in Curitiba. But this is a new wave here: shawarma (a.k.a. doner kebab or simply kebab).

We are too close to Greece/Turkey, this kind of fast food arrived here around 1995.

Well, we are a lot further from Greece and Turkey and it arrived here in 1980.
But we can't be quite sure.

This food arrived in Brazil on last decade with the syrian and lebanese from Foz do Iguaçu. Then, there is a simple version in São Paulo with bread called "churrasco grego" (greek barbecue).

There is a place here what the owner is a syrian and cookers are egyptians and syrians.
