Day 1

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.

  1. Thanks for sharing Bobby, Crazy on the Keyboard! Yikes. Yes, post a photo of your sleeping space. How nice, good food at an affordable price. I bet my typing is tougher for me right now. I have an almost 3 year old batting my left arm off the keyboard every 5 seconds and then laughing at my response to him doing it! Makes it take forever to reply. 😉 Tell Kellie HI! So glad you guys made it safe and sound. Sleep well.

  2. How neat, that building in the foreground has grass on the roof! I know that’s probably a lot more common even over in the Seattle area, but it’s very foreign here in Missoula. Not quite sure why… it’s a very “green” & “granola” town. anyway, enough about me. You’re there!!!!!!!! And it’s super hot!!!!! And already you’re adjusting to new things and experiencing things you’ve never experienced before. Thanks for sharing.
