Budapest was one of those places I just felt at home in. If they would give me citizenship with my great-grandparents being from there I'd take it in a flash, but usually it has to at least be grandparents, if not parents. The food from that trip is why I decided on Prague for the next trip. Food influences in Prague are from both Germany and Hungary, so I'll have the best of both! That's moved Istanbul to the top of the places to go in the future!
Just got my notification to come down for fingerprinting at immigration. I'm in the midst of renewing my residency here in México and that's the last step before going in and picking up the card. Of course it took them three pages of legal crap to say it Today's a holiday, AND it's been POURING down rain (If it wasn't warm I'd swear I was in Seattle), so I'll go tomorrow. The renewal period is for three years, at which time they're supposed to allow you to convert it to a permanent residency. With my local office you never know what hoops they're going to make you jump through, but at least I'll be good for three more years.
