I’m not sure it’s day 1, with all the flying, but I can tell you one thing. I am going to be using my laptop as much as possible. On Hungarian keyboards, the Y and Z are switched and the apostrophe is shift-1, while @ is ALT-GR-V. See for yourself: Today, we met up with about 8 other teachers, from throughout the USA, and one from Australia. We wandered around a few times, from the dorms at Corvinus (university) where we are staying up a hilly trail to the Citadel which overlooks all of Budapest:For lunch, we walked down the road and attempted to order chicken gyros. They were really good, an about $3. I also had a cup of limoncello/mojito gelato. For dinner, ten of us went to an outdoor cafe which was pretty fancy. My grilled pork chops with polenta cakes and sauerkraut cost about $9…it would have cost $15-20 at home.
I am in a super-humid computer room, where I will type my posts for the next several days; after that, I will be back on my laptop. Tomorrow we have free time, until the official welcome dinner at 6pm.
Let me know if you have photo requests! Love to everyone.
