Two technologically-challenged guys

Oy!  In our apartment in Budapest, there is a washer and a dryer.  We loaded our clothes and soap in the "washer" and couldn't figure out why it didn't fill with water.  When it turned off, and our clothes were warm, we realized it was the dryer. (Understand that the dials and knobs on the machines were written in a language neither of us understood.).  When we took our clothes out, we found that my passport had been in my pants pocket.  Thank God we got the machines mixed up.  Without a passport, I would be going nowhere fast.

Florin is still laughing an hour later and can't wait to tell everyone we know.  Oy!


  1. I can hear your loud laughter from here! Very funny story!!

  2. Reminds me of the first time Paul came here and spent half the night up because he couldn't turn on our shower~~ I agree with Pam, the laughter can be heard here!

  3. Sounds like maybe you two enjoyed a bit toooo much of that German Bock Beer!
    You sound wonderful! The photo's are awesome! Good to hear things are going so well.

  4. I finally had the time to catch up with you. Great picures. Loved this one. Sure it isn't old age????
