Home in Hungary.....

well it's offical we have arrived in hungary, it's a balmy -2 C and a little snow on the ground but the skies are clear and beauiful, exciting to finally be here. We've met parts of the team and should be meeting more tonight, sorry no pics of hungary yet. We woke up at 5:oo in the morning in germany and then travelled over here so a nap was due after lunch, and now here i sit. The base here is quite nice. We are here with 12 others for the month of training, some are off to moldova, some romania, one to the czech and some koreans are going to kosovo, the others are americans, including a bunch from georgia. Lots of good laughs. We had a commisioning service last night in germany and out of the 250 people heading off we are going to over 40 countries, and both the ships. So neat to see the great commision being fullfilled in the this group. Tomorrow we head off to a local baptist church to enjoy our first hungarian church service. We have already learned the first hungarian lesson, when driving either be aggresive or stay off the roads, the drivers here are noticably more aggresive than germany, we had cars passing on two lane roads where we had to pull on the shoulder and the on coming cars had to go on the shoulder and our driver just kept on driving as if nothing was out of the ordinary. Lesson one learned more lessons to go. Till we hit lesson two.

Kyle: if you can drive the Subaru through the airport field, then racing with the best of Europes finest shouldn't be a problem. This however leaves Lynnette in charge of the tunes. Do you guys get 'Jack FM' over there? :)
