  • Small, young voices, many with questions, filled the large place more used to mature conversation. One bemoaned that she could not get the thread into the eye of a needle. Another tried to fit her small finger into a large thimble before selecting another from the box of supplies.

    Earlier in the day all had learned to sagely use scissors and cut material. Now they were threading needles and learning to make stitches of an even size, preferably small and not so tight their material puckered.

    sponsors sought

  • After the usual first day rat race, I made it to Budapest, pronounced "pech" or something like that. I planned to pick up an Enterprise rental car at Gainesville Airport, but when I got there, I found out they wouldn't take my debit card. So I flew (almost) to Orlando in my own vehicle and parked it and hoped for the best. Orlando Airport was on level orange security alert which made things even more stressful, getting into the boarding area and waving goodbye to my suitcase, hoping it would end up with me. I flew to New York JFK Airport and then on to Budapest.
