Winter Arrives

Snow has come to Budapest and winter temperatures along with it. Yesterday evening we went to a pre-thanksgiving party hosted by a Mormon family we know. A young woman there, an undergraduate study-abroad student from California organized an activity where we each had to say what we were thankful for and what traditions from our past that we enjoyed. Some interesting answers came out such as "I'm thankful to have a body." I said I was thankful for Budapest and to have found a family here and for the Mormons who've given me the opportunity to take my family to holiday get-togethers. I thought about saying I was thankful for Vipassana meditation, but I didn't.
