Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I highly recommend you watch this nine-minute video. Shot by the Index.hu journalists who joined the trek along the highway, you can hear some of the heroes of Friday in their own voices.

The subtitles are in Hungarian but all the interviewed speak English. The one part where there is a lot of Hungarian and some Arabic is from 5:00 in, that's when the buses arrive. The man in red jacket explains that the first six buses won't stop because they will pick up the trek along the railway tracks (the one from the train stopped at Bicske) because they are in even worse health. Later the two Syrians in yellow baseball hats debate whether to board the buses or avoid another trap by walking on. Later the Hungarian interpreter relays the demand that all bus drivers confirm in front of cameras that the buses are really going to the border.

Also, for example the shot of the guy at about 1:05 is priceless.

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
