Egészségedre to Peter – 19 March

Another week has come to an end, and with a fishing trip to the river, a few drinks at Laurinda’s, and many more drinks at home, we bid Peter the, at the time very drunken, Hungarian farewell. Such a solid individual I’m glad to have known and hope to stay in touch with, at least a bit.

Vonny commented that when people leave this place, they also tend to leave a bit behind – a presence that remains here as well as physical reminders of what they accomplished, be it a pile of pine trunks to line the vegetable gardens or a row of trees that will eventually be Andrew’s valiant hedge.

I’ve only got a few days left before I myself am on my way. It’s a comforting thought to know that even though I’ll leave, a bit of me will stay behind.

Oh, and by the way “Egészségedre” in the title, is the Hungarian word for “Cheers”.
