Budapest, Texas, Israel update

Item! It's set. The great Hungarian adventure will begin in 2 weeks. I'll have pictures. Not naked ones tho. I'll romp (not in the nude) through Budapest. On the agenda: Visit granny. Chat up my incredible, unreliable but very good-natured cousin. Avoid my sociopathic cousin. Avoid my alcoholic uncles. Get fresh fruit. real fruit. Check out Oxford Publishing, specifically their local office. I feel torn, as I suppose all immigrants do. I'm not a Hungarian but I'm not an American either. If sufficient lucre is thrown my way I may try to work there for a while. I highly doubt that I would move back- it's just a closure thing. I'm the type that needs closure.

Item! My contract (I hear the laughter of Korean old-hands even as I write the "c" word- yes, I am aware of the meaninglessness of contracts in Korea) runs through May 2006 but the semesters are 3 months each. The next one, if there will be a next one, will start on October 4th and run through December 31st. I should (emphasis on should) get some time off during this period which I will use to visit the Longhorns. One specific Longhorn actually. I didn't know I was the type to miss someone so much. Huh. You learn something new about yourself every day.

Item! Hebrew University in Jerusalem has responded to my request and sent me their application form. Turns out the program (both the MBA and M.A. ones) are in Hebrew. I don't know why I didn't think of that.

Request for help (The mooching section): I have a mobile phone that lets me shoot video but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to email said video. It's a Cyon/LG thingie. I can email pictures but not video. This sucks. If anyone can help solve this mystery (I'm an 80's child/refugee) they will be rewarded with "The mop: the movie". It's time to jump start my film career.

It's summer. When I was there, there was a place for drinking and general hilarity on the river lovingly called the "Meat market." If you find time, you should go and blow off steam.

I will be there only for four days so the time thing may be pressing. Are you talking about the Danube on the Pest side- Szent Istvan Korut (Saint Stephen Circle)?

I don't know. Got roped into a visit.Memory is very hazy from E. Europe trip. It's on the far side. Down the road from that gorgeous cave church that they have on the hill.
