Miki, friend of Sebastian and Meta

Miki organises art and music festivals in Hungary, which is also how he met his friend Sebastian. He talks to Team East about the buzzing art community in Budapest, and how media sometimes has a negative effect on local people's perception of the world. He sends Joey, Paula and John to Bled in Slovenia, where his friend and the next host, Meta, lives. 
What is your superpower?
That's a really good question, thank you. I always use this question as a conversation tool. My superpower would for sure be super-jumping. It's like jumping really, really high. For some reason I had it in my dreams when I was younger, and I still believe that I would really enjoy huge jumps.
What would you change in your country if you were able to?
The mentality. Somehow, I would make the people a bit more open. In the countryside, it is really tricky for the people. I think they experience a lot of the world around them through media. And the media, maybe almost everywhere, does not report on nice things. This starts to make them feel afraid of other people. That's a really unhealthy mentality I think, and I would like to change that and open their heart or eyes.
What are you proud of?
I'm really proud of the people around me. In Budapest we have a really big collective of around 200 people. It's a big group of friends, they're all kinds of super amazing human beings, and I am really, really glad to have them.
What is your spirit vegetable?
Beetroot - it was not a very good friend of mine for a long time, but now I am really into it. And I'm also really into its color, it has a big effect.
