Not much to post for Wednesday, just a few observations. First of all, it is important to keep yourself hydrated, because today in the shade it felt like 100 degrees. As I said before, the work here is rigorous, but made easier by the fact that it is a dry heat. Unfortunately for me, my body is not adjusted to being without air conditioning and dehydration is a real concern. While I almost did pass out working on the columns before lunch, I am very lucky to have member’s of Crescendo looking out for me. There also happens to be one coffee shop in town with air-conditioning that makes a mean cappuccino/gelato/water (when necessary) combination.
As a side note, making an effort to say everything correctly in Hungarian when it comes to ordering tepertos (‘te-per-tus’) and cappuccino counts. The next day you end up with a musically-oriented cappuccino.
Oh another thing. Even stray dogs in Sarospatak like to listen to opera. Like Mr. Black and White over here:
Only in Hungary.
One more point to make is that sometimes you will eat very strange food. I’m taking soft-boiled egg pizza. Many thanks to Matt for demonstrating its finer qualities.
