I'm not sure if I spelled "hunky-dory" right, but I couldn't resist the whole play on "Hunky" thing, as, well, being of Hungarian descent, I must take advantage of being able to use such a term. At any rate, I have arrived in Hungary safely on Thursday. My luggage has yet to arrive, though the hotel people seem hopeful that it might come today. Apparently, this is a normal problem when traveling to Budapest. FYI, I had only one bag, only one connecting flight, which was in the states, and my connecting flight arrived two full hours before the direct flight to Europe was to take off. Friends, I do believe that this is total bullshit. I'm not sure if it's my destination or Delta that's to blame, but thank god I'm paranoid and I packed clean undies, all my toiletries, and an extra shirt in my carry-on. Also, thank god that all the stores take visa, as I've been busy shopping during the past two days.
In other news, I had a kind of dramatic series of experiences at St. Istvan's yesterday, which I've diarized about and which I will post about on my return home.
Nothing else to report, though I'm exicted for the Symposium to begin. Oh, and I'm LOVING the food. Pork fried in breadcrumbs? Yummmmmmmmyyyyyy.
The above is why I will never be truly thin.
Perhaps more once before I leave - perhaps not. I must now away to the opening of the symposium! Yippee!
