Flower power, love, peace, save the earth and music that stirred your soul and moved your heart signified the energy of youth during the 1960s. They seemed to get so many things right.

Another thing they got right was the thinking that we should cool it and relax more.

DWWs Joanna sure absorbed that line of reasoning to the max.

I’ve heard of people seeing relaxation as taking a break but I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen anyone list it as an actual hobby.

If you do what you love, it is the best way to relax.….Christian Louboutin

Joanna did. Good for her.

It’s fitting that when the DWW leadership and reviewers speak of her they refer to The Golden Era of DWW wrestling and if you watch the matches during that time period it would be easy to agree.

Her Golden Era jousts include matches against Wanda, Iva, Kriszta, Susanne, Svetlana, Antonia to name a view.

Here are a few reviews of appreciation.

“If some fans don’t know that Joanna was one of the best submission wrestlers in the ‘golden era’ of DWW releases, they should first watch DWW-181 (Part 1/DWW Movies) from the great Wrestling Island series (DWW 174-181). She’s probably not so easy for the eyes as e.g. her opponents Barbara and Luzia (on DWW-181). Nevertheless this Joanna special DWW-405 shows that she’s not only a strong and skilled competitor with a fit and attractive body, but she has so much fun with wrestling, because she really enjoys the competition and the physical contact with her opponents. You can learn to enjoy watching Joanna’s matches since she’s smiling and joking even during fights which are tough sessions for her.

This ‘Oldie but Goodie’ is not only remarkable because of Joanna but also due to the perfect selection of her opponents.”

Here is a review of her match against Iva. “This match was an international pins and submissions wrestling match and therefore there was a lot of intensity and a lot of cheering on by their teams. Both women wrestled aggressively to exhaustion and you’ll see a lot of crushing scissors and female muscle worship between those two strong and successful women of the past.”

It’s easy to fall in love with a match when it features two legends. When Joanna faced Germany’s majestic import in Susanne, intensity was in the air. A fan wrote, “The first match was a clash of great skill and power between Joanna and one of her best friends, Susanne from Germany.”

I enjoyed revisiting Joanna’s matches because not only did she wrestle hard but she had a sense of humor and was constantly flirting and bantering with the other girls. She never seemed to take it too seriously.

It’s understandable since her name means Gift from God.

The fantastic naming site sheknows.com expands upon the description and analysis. “People with this name have a deep inner desire to lead, organize, supervise, and to achieve status, power and wealth.

They also tend to initiate events, to be leaders rather than followers, with powerful personalities. They tend to be focused on specific goals, experience a wealth of creative new ideas, and have the ability to implement these ideas with efficiency and determination. They tend to be courageous and sometimes aggressive. As unique, creative individuals, they tend to resent authority, and are sometimes stubborn, proud, and impatient.”

Wow, that’s a lot. No wonder Joanna loves to relax.

The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.…..Sydney J. Harris

She also loves watching movies, drinking Pina Colada, listening to all kinds of music (including great songs from the 1960’s I would guess), writing poetry and well……relaxing.

With that spirit in mind, let’s do some relaxing ourselves.

Joanna wrestled at Hungarian events so let’s travel to Budapest to do some people watching. Don’t you love to travel, relax in the right spot in a city new to you and watch people? I sure do. Do, where would be a great place to do that in Budapest?

The informative site theguardian.com provides us with a chair and refreshments. “Built in 1897, the splendid, wrought-iron Great Market Hall (Nagycsarnok) is the place to go for foodie treats. Aside from the usual fruit and veg stalls, there are counters piled high with meats, cheeses and baked goodies, as well as more exotic fare like foie gras, truffles and tokaj wine, though it is a little more expensive than elsewhere. Locals tend to head upstairs for a no-frills, canteen-style lunch at Fakanál, or just make for one of the many stalls selling lángos, a delicious, doughy, deep-fried flatbread topped with sour cream and cheese.

Few European cities can rival Budapest’s glorious setting astride the Danube River.”

Great. What are you having to snack on and drink? Don’t you love the setting?

The Great Market Hall or Central Market Hall is the largest and oldest indoor market in Budapest.

The idea of building such a large market hall arose from the first mayor of Budapest, Károly Kamermayer, and it was his largest investment. He retired in 1896 so when the building was completed, he participated in the opening ceremony as a citizen.

It is located at the end of the famous pedestrian shopping street Váci utca and on the Pest side of the Liberty bridge at Fővám square.

The building was designed and built by Samu Pecz around 1897. The market offers a huge variety of stalls on three floors. The entrance gate is with neogothic touch. A distinctive architectural feature is the roof which was restored to have colorful Zsolnay tiling from Pécs. The area size of the building is 10,000 square meters, which is covered by steel structure.

During the World Wars it was completely damaged and then closed for some years. Throughout the 1990s restoration works brought back the market to its ancient splendor.

Most of the stalls on the ground floor offer produce, meats, pastries, candies, spices, and spirits such as paprika, tokaji, túró rudi, and caviar. The second floor has mainly eateries and souvenirs. The lángos stand, which Rick Steves considers to be the best at the market, is located on this floor, serving the deep-fried snack lángos. The basement contains butcher shops, fish market, and pickles. Not only do they have traditional cucumber pickles, but they also offer pickled cauliflower, cabbage, beets, tomatoes, and garlic.

Sounds yummy and healthy.

Here is a sound tip from budapestmarkethall.com. “You may wonder when it is the best time to visit the Great Market Hall. We often get this question, and the answer is, it depends.

Definitely not on a Sunday, as, in contrast to shopping malls in Budapest, the modern markets of consumerism, Budapest market halls are not open on Sundays. The market is open from Monday to Saturday, so schedule your market tour by taking into consideration the current opening hours.”

The Great Market Hall has beautiful women, families that bring back memories and a beehive of activities. What an invigorating and refreshing place to people watch and relax.

The main thing to do is relax and let your talent do the work.…….Charles Barkley

Joanna brings back wonderful memories of the golden era that didn’t seem that way in that time period. Then it was viewed as just plain old good wrestling. Time does have a way of placing things in perspective if we keep our minds open. Virtually all of our Fem Competitors through their stories have taught very important life lessons.

The timeless beauty Joanna did as well.
