Jennifer Eidum has arrived in Budapest to begin graduate school at the Central European University. She's got a nice post and some lovely pictures that give me a bit of a pang. Some of you know that when I graduated from college (Oregon, 1987) I spent a year as an exchange student in Hungary, then returned in 1991 and again from 1992-1993 on a Fulbright. So to see the country again always fills me with nostalgia and a bit of dread (the old anxiety about spending a year alone in a country where you didn't yet speak the language). Anyway, check out her blog here.
