Para bailar la bamba

So I'm back from the weekend!

It was seriously so much fun. I hung out with Kristof and Paige and Johnny a lot :). We've decided that we're the Sassy Four and kept using the word "swanky". We were a team for black light mini golfing, and Kristof was Tweets (because he makes bird noises!), Johnny was Sassypants (because he is the most sassy), I was Elf (because I'm the shortest), and Paige was Pangea (because I call her "Pange"). And we went to the beach and it was beautiful! We go back for the District Conference in May.

All of the outbounds had to speak in their language in front of everyone and say basic things (name, age, where we're from and which country we're going to). Unfortunately, I didn't know how to say nearly any of that in Hungarian. It was actually really really embarrassing and it kind of made me realize how much Hungarian I don't know. I know a lot of random words, but they probably won't be really helpful when I first get there and such. Oh well... limited language learning resources are the downside of learning an obscure language!

Oh and to explain the title, Marius from Norway was singing La Bamba all weekend and he didn't even know the words! I think it's permanently stuck in my head.

Anyway, I had a great time and really love my Rotary family :). I can't wait to see everyone again in May!

After counting down for two months, today is the day of my first official orientation and Rotary spring outing :D.

I'll update afterward!
