Blogging from Budapest
March 19, 2007
I have to say that I really love Web 2.0. This morning I have been enjoying the benefits of being able to check my email through an Outlook browser interface, read through my RSS subscriptions with Google Reader and bookmarking several sites using my del.icio.us account. Here I am on a friend’s computer in Budapest, Hungary and I can do all these things by using the Web as a platform. It really is a small world.
Budapest? Yes, I am in Hungary. I am spending the day with a friend after a week of ministry in Hungarian high schools. This is my seventh trip to Hungary. My wife and I lived in Eastern Hungary for a year in 97-98. I really love this country and enjoy every opportunity that I get to come back and be part of the Campus Crusade ministry here.
I scheduled some extra time to spend with my friend Laci. I met him 17 years ago when I came to Hungary on a Campus Crusade for Christ Summer Project. Laci is now leading the Campus ministry in Hungary. He and his wife are expecting their third child in April and I brought along several outfits for the baby that our children have outgrown.
I will be sharing more about my trip on my other website after I return to the U.S. and share pictures on Flickr. I fly home on Tuesday with more memories and looking forward to seeing my family after 10 days away from them. Szia Hungary.
