I have not had my second Hungarian class yet mostly because of scheduling issues, so I'm afraid I haven't learned much in the last couple of weeks. I talked to a friend from work yesterday who is living and working in our Copenhagen office for a 2 year assignment, and he says he takes 5 hours of Danish classes a week. And he studies on top of that. I can't claim to have shown that much ambition so far. But he's been there for 9 months and says that he can speak well enough so far to have very simple "hi, how are you?" conversations. I don't think Hungarian is any easier than Danish, so that worries me a little about my ability to get better at communicating with non-English speakers here before I leave. I guess we'll see what happens.
I'm looking forward to a quiet, easy weekend in town this weekend. It'll be the first weekend I stay in Debrecen in about 6 weeks. It will be nice to sleep in, maybe do some shopping, go out with some people for a beer. I scheduled a massage for myself on Sunday, which I can't wait to have. It's about $30 for an hour and it's at my hotel so I don't even have to go anywhere afterward. Except maybe to bed =)
It's my last week here before I go home to Austin for a couple of weeks. I can't wait to see everyone and eat some serious Mexican food. I'm excited.
