Today I spent (or rather am spending, since I am still here) over five hours at McDo on the internet. I got locked out of the professors' lounge this weekend. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
And the worst part? They didn't have any ketchup for my fries! You know you're in France when McDo's has plenty of mayo but no ketchup.
While camped out at McDonald's I've mostly been planning my upcoming travels. February vacation starts in two weeks (Zone B got screwed over with late vacation this year). My parents are coming for the first week and we'll be in Paris and the chateaux de la Loire. The second week I'll be heading down south to scope out Avignon, Arles, and Nice (anyone still looking for travel plans the first week of March is welcome to join!). I also did some hotel research for leg one of my Eastern Europe Excursion with Leesa for the April vacation. We'll be going to Salzburg, Vienna, and Budapest. We'll try to explore our Hungarian roots... but not in Hungarian, since we don't speak it.
Speaking of travelling, I highly recommend that you all check out Zhu's blog Correr Es Mi Destino. She's on a multi-month travel through Central and South America, currently in the Patagonia. Her pictures and travel tales are fantastic and very drool worthy. I dream of going to these places some day.
