Alright ladies and gents here is the low-down on Hungary:
everything is mini-sized (like cars, dishwashers, beds-I,yes thats right Jessica Weber-has to sleep diagonally in order to fit comfortably in bed-actually I just checked and it is a futon (I doubt thats spelt right) ANYWAYS, minisized: roads-so tiny and windy-,furniture-except that which is an antique such as most of the stuff in the house-, bathrooms-and all in the bathroom.
the only thing not mini-sized is the buildings. We (my host-mum Gabriella and I) went for a walk downtown and she showed me my school and it is huge! It is four stories high and huge! It used to be an old mansion or castle or something like that. I remember when I thought Merc was big...those were the days.
The bathroom (and Laurel this is where I thought of you) has no shower only a bath and I tried to have a bath the other day, and I dont know whether they just have a really really small hot water heater or I was doing something wrong (more likely) because I only got like 2 inches of hot water so I just splashed around for a while.
And probably the most annoying thing right now is that alot of the keys on the keyboard are in the 'wrong' spot and many of the big keys (like enter, shift, backspace) are alot smaller to make room for all of these random keys like öüóőúűáéí. So this blog is taking forever to write, and as much of zou know computers mainly drive me crazy so this is like a little dose of torture! See how much I love you all that I would put myself through this?
Anyways, the flight was loooong and if any of you want to hear a funny story about my late night adventure in Edmonton trying to find the rotarians house (Nelson Scott) ask Saima or my mum, its a good one.
So I am trying to learn Hungarian (Gabriella thankfully knows english) but whenever I try Gabi jsut laughs, so I guess its good that she has a sense of humour since I am butchering her language.
Well I guess I will carry on with what Kristina started and will give you guys a little Hungarian lesson (Hungarian=Magyarul)
Good day ( Jó napot can add kivanok if you want to be formal)
Good bye (visontlátásra after practicing this for ever i found out you can just say szia which is pronounced just like see ya)
well that is all! you now know just about as much hungarian as I do!
