Just Another Day in Budapest

A day in my life here in Budapest. Friday, May 29th to be exact. I didn’t quite manage a photo an hour but this is a fairly representative sampling of my day. I woke up at 5:45, as usual, and remembered to snap my first picture 45 minutes later.

6:30 Looking in my closet to see what I should wear. Decided not to make the bed this morning.


6:39 Putting my extra 10 minutes to use this morning to drink my coffee in the stream of sunlight coming through the window. Good use of time, I’d say.


6:54 Walking to meet Lauren and Jess for my ride to school.


7:03 Off we go.


7:05 Always have to sneak a peak at that view!


7:09 We decided on a little impromptu pit stop at Starbucks. It used to be our Monday morning tradition until construction around the bridge got crazy.


7:47 At my desk. Time to check emails and maaaybe get some work done before the school day starts.


10:52 Almost done with the first teaching period of the day. We were watching videos that the students chose from the website The Kid Should See This while I checked their video summaries on my computer to see how well they did.


2:18 (Really I’m not always at my desk!) I taught another period, ate some lunch in the faculty dining room, and worked in some classrooms. Now back at my desk grading some student work.


3:52 My ride home.


5:22 I killed some time at the mall and then hopped on the train to get to CrossFit.


5:27 On “our island”–Hajógyári sziget.


5:46 Checking out the whiteboard. Fraaan. Oh boy, this is going to be a tough one!



7:13 Heading back home. I love these longer days when it’s still light out when I leave the box.


7:41 Took the train part way then jumped in a cab to make it on time to dinner with the girls. Taverna Dionysos overlooking the Danube on this gorgeous spring night.


10:08 It’s been a long week and I am so ready for bed. Decided to cab it home. Erzsebet Bridge and Castle Hill lit up in the background.


10:22 Three flights of stairs. I hate them with a passion.


10:30 Eight minutes later and I am already in bed. Zonked!
