Summer time...

Time just flies by in the summer. I have been out of school for 2 weeks but it feels like I ended yesterday.

So much has happened.

I got to see Southwestern Hungary.

Tried to do a pub crawl in Pecs with some Swedes, but failed because everything closed at 12.

Was scared in a kocsma in Nagybajom. It was quite interesting because the name translates as "My big problem."

I got to visit with Franny and Jon in Kalocsa and was fed an enormous amount of food.

Had to say goodbye to Jaime when she left us on the 18th.

I was happy to see my kids, but was very sad again when I realized I would have 2 months away from them.

I cooked szalonna over an open flame

I put my liver through so much exercise it probably wants to hit me.

I had to say goodbye to my Hungarian big sister, Briggi, this morning. I was crying on the bus.

I have had so many random questions posed to me, my favourite being "Canada is a country?"

I love Hungary. I don't want to leave.

Where else could I go on a school drinking trip to the Ukraine?

Sorry for the long break, but I am back home. For now!

Me and Briggi after one week together.
