So, we're back.  You'll notice the exclamation point (!) is noticeably absent.  Of course it's wonderful to be reunited with the people and places that make our life in D.C. so wonderful.  But who could be happy to leave this:

The skyline is nice, but the Zsidro blowout is a true national treasure...

I love this picture.

This is where their ELEPHANTS live, for crying out loud. 

But we're glad to be back. 
Epecially since we know we'll return to Budapest soon.
