Should I say, HU?... |-) (Date/time is traditionally "yyyy. mm. dd., TZ", with some parts usually omitted.)

Well, although HU might be also generally called a German-influenced
country in some respects, at least we appear to use that notation by
tradition :-). (Hungarian address is generally
addressee-followed-by-address, each in most-significant-first (as is
date, and personal name, for that matter)). Minus ZipCode, of course,
which might have been added to the _bottom_ of the address because of
technical (not traditional) reasons.
