Something like our first family vacation ever

We are in Sopron, a small town in Hungary that sticks out into Austria. We’re having our first family vacation “ever” more or less, definitely the first with all of us.

We passed through Slovakia and stayed the night with an email friend who has adopted two gorgeous Romani girls. Another family with Romani children from Austria/Hungary came to visit us there. We had a wonderful day in the sun, around the wading pool with sun-burned adults and nicely tanned, very very happy children.

Now we have three days to play around the Austrian/Hungarian lake of Neusiedel before we get on our flight to Oregon and leave Dusan to build herb driers and rock walls by himself all summer. So far it has been a wonderful trip with few fights among children and/or adults.

    Mmm. That sounds very nice. A well-deserved reprieve for all of you, from the drudgery of daily life and dealing with intransigent bureaucrats!

    I wish I could be in Oregon to meet your darlings and see you again. Miami isn’t as far from Oregon as the Czech Republic, but it’s pretty far! May you have a perfect visit.
