30 days of Thanks- D3

I'm very thankful for the opportunity I've had to live abroad, not once but twice.  When the chance to live in Hungary came up there was the initial reaction of "Where??"  The idea of moving so far from family, and to a place that's so different, was intimidating, but exciting as well.  How many people get the chance to actually live behind the Iron Curtain?  We've traveled to places I never expected to see, and experienced a people I never expected to meet.  Living abroad has given me deeper insight into my own country, into our strengths and weakness, and I will come back and a better person for it.  The Hungarians are an amazing people, and it's been a privilege to live here.

The view out my front door.  I will miss it here.
