Dumpling & Tempura in Budapest

Aida made it again!!...what a fantastic surprise!...she came with Adan (her lovely brother)...so last year we decided to have special names...Aida is dumpling, Adan is tempura, Jesse is matzah ball and I'm empanada, yesterday we came out with Duncan's name: Short bread ( we have to honor his scottish ancestors!) . The guys came for two days, they are leaving today. last night we went to check the Opera of Budapest and eat pizza, pizza, pizza. We took a group picture before we came to work...oops...yes...I'm at work but shhhh. Aida was in every apt that Jesse lived, neck to neck with Kristina...so Kris...we are waiting!

Aida lo ha hecho nuevamente, vino por dos dias y la pasamos barbaro. Vino con Adan, su hermano. Fuimos a la Opera y caminar por Budapest. Estan viendo fotos de la opera. Aida ha estado en todos los departamentos en los cuales Jesse ha vivido. Conoci a Aida al otro dia de conocer a Jesse y no nos hemos despegado!, la pasamos muy lindo, Feliz cumple Aida, espero la hayas pasado muy lindo, te quiero mucho! la foto grupal la sacamos hoy de mañana. Increible, no?

Oh Berlin!

Well...after my b-day we went to Berlin for 4 days and we have the opportunity of meeting Joyce (Jesse's relative) and staying for two days at her apartment in the west part of the city. She is lovely and has the glamour that we were looking for in a relative!, we talked about family and stories about the city. After staying with her we left to meet one of the sweetest guys on earth, Mr. Sam.. he was introduced to us by the famous chicken Bones. Hope you are pleased now Chicken bones....but does not for here.Sam lives in the east part of the city ( it's one city, of course, no more walls please) but it's incredible to see the difference still. so....Sam..., Günther (his dutch?....boyfriend) and Lazy Susan made our trip unforgettable. We walked so much, have a great time at Roses bar, went to a parade (party) for labor day and see red flags with Mr. Stalin and all that. Of course we went to different parts of the city to check the wall and still quite can't believe it happened. Sam and Günther were amazing hosts, they were tour guides and we didn't know....so much to learn.....I love when people knows a lot about their citis, I just love it...I just love a lot fo people...people....PEOPLE!!! Oh!...the architecture in this city is insane, better than NY!!...Enjoy the pics. Thanks to our German, American and Dutch new friends.Love!!

Despues de mi cumple fuimos a Berlin por 4 dias. Conocimos a Joyce, prima de Jesse, un eslabon reencontrado. Ella es parte de la flia que quedo en Europa durante la 2da guerra mundial. Nos quedamos con ella por dos dias, vive en la parte oeste de la ciudad, un barrio muy lindo. Luego nos quedamos con Sam (el rubio d epelo largo) y con su novio Gunther. Sam es americano y Guther es aleman( yo lo jodo y digo que es holandes). Nos recorrimos todo, museo, el dome (cupula) , basilicas, sinagogas, memorials y por supuesto el muro de Berlin. tambien restaurantes y bares gay. No hicimos compras ( supuestamente ibamos a comprar ropa), no hubo tiempo, pero no importa ya que la pasamos re lindo. el este es increible, muy distinto a la otra parte aunque ahora esten juntos desde hace años. Besotes.
