XpatLoop is a great resource for all kinds of activities here in Hungary. For example, they are helping United Way Hungary promote our annual gala dinner. You are invited of course!"
"Diane and I had a busy and fun weekend. We kicked-off the weekend on Friday at a bar we originally called, "Roaches" (this is a story for another day), but have since learned the real name (of which I cannot of course remember). Éva introduced us to some yummy snacks which are like cheesy, salty, baked potato chips. Just what I need another "potato chip" snack!On Saturday, Diane spent half the day with her friend at a fabulous "flea market" called Ecseri Market. It is filled with wonderful and not-so-wonderful things. It is a antique lovers dream come true. Ours friends, Ruth & Leo in Estonia who have the best antique store in the country, would especially find this market interesting. Meanwhile I was at the dry cleaners, doing laundry and off to the market where I accidently bought 1 kilo of chicken (2.2 lbs) instead of 1/2 kilo. I forgot to say, "fel kilo!"On Sunday, good friends of ours, Éva & David, who live in Brussels was visiting Budapest. We actually know them from Seattle! Diane and I then went to look at a lovely flat in District XVI (outskirts of city). It was a cute flat that is part of a home. We need to move in April, so we'll see. We then rounded out the day with a stop at Tesco (a version of Costco, Krogers or any hyper market de jour).You can expect some new blogs with photos soon!"- Steven
