Update. Woopidy.

Okay, so this blog as much as I can to keep everyone updated thing is a lot harder than I thought it would be! Let me explain...

I'm staying at my aunt and uncle's apartment. They are probably some of the only people in this town that do NOT own a computer. Therefore, they do not have a wireless router. Luckily for me, I have a handy dandy iPhone. I can tether wi-fi if I so please. Every wifi connection here requires some complicated password. My mother and I resorted to connecting to every hotspot that we could in the city. Whenever we want to keep up to date with civilization we walk to all of the areas that we've been connected to. Also, my cousin owns an electronic/computer store so I can definitely go there anytime. Good thing he's only 3 blocks down from this place.

Now, now now, I know what you're thinking. I'm getting a lot of exercise just by walking to these hotspots.

You're wrong. Today my aunt brought over her laptop with some sort of mobile wireless internet contraption. I can finally go on my Macbook. It's so funny how internet makes me really happy.

I really do enjoy the quiet lifestyle my godparents and older relatives live. It's really great. In fact, I think I would love to move to Europe after I finish my studies.


The trip to Hungary took a lot longer than expected. That's old news though.
Yesterday was my mother's 30th year high school reunion. My dad couldn't be there to accompany her on this joyous occasion, so I offered to be her date. I really am a wonderful person.

I learned a lot about my mom, and finally got to meet all the people she tells me stories about. Instead of writing this out (since it is already late here and I am not adjusted to this time difference at all) I'll share in pictures.

 Okay so if you look at the bottom row third woman in, dats my mama in her senior picture. Look at that Mona Lisa smile!

 The courtyard where her and her "friends" that she always talked about ate lunch. I now know that they're real, since I've finally met them.
 Her class. Of 24.....
 Me and the mama. My eyes are always quite squinty in pictures. I guess it's just something I HAVE to work on....

no modeling career :(

Some delicious Hungarian dessert recipe.

I have a lot more to write about, but I'm really lazy and don't want to. Maybe I'll do it tomorrow. Or maybe I never will. Who knows.

I'm quite the tired tiger!

I love you all and have a vondaful night.



  1. Splendid pictorial detail. You should be a photographist. I enjoy living vicariously through your travel log. Can't wait to hear what's next!

  2. a) Your eyes are not squinty.
    b) That dessert looks...delicious? Good thing I'm running now and can eat them again!

  3. Maria! I thought it was ice cream but it was actually some sort of vanilla bread pudding with chocolate syrup on top. I ate all the whipped cream :x

    you're not retired anymore? I'm running here and there are so many pretty trails! I love it. Every run goes by so quickly. The weather is perfect and not too humid. Beats Florida any day fo'sho.
