Did I mention it's almost impossible to log into this site? It's all in English, just like it was when I set it up in the United States...but not until I log in. Before that it's a bunch of words that mean absolutely nothing to me (unfortunately). Trial and error...
I strolled around Budapest by myself today. I tried to see how familiar I could make myself feel even though I still hardly know any of the language. It went pretty well and there's a lot going on because this is the weekend of the big Hungarian national holiday. I bought some food at a stall that was similar to pizza. It was baked dough topped with a whole bunch of cheese, something like sour cream or cottage cheese, big chunks of fatty bacon, and plenty of spices. I don't know the Hungarian word for "delicious", but I would use it if I did.
Now as the afternoon heat has set in, my happy friend named jet lagged has begun to reappear. I would consider taking a nap but I think my room is about 500 degrees celsius (imagine what that is in farenheit).
The view from where I'm staying is incredible because the building is on a hill overlooking the picturesque city of Budapest. My room, however, is on the opposite side and is overlooking a picturesque view of why communism sucks. Oh well, that's what curtains are for.
