“…to seek her will have no difficulty, for he will find her sitting at his gates.” Wisdom 6:14-24
This is certainly not about me. No one should rely on me at any gates that early in the morning. Sorry, I am not an early riser… and they make us to get up here at 5AM?!?!? Gosh… By noon time, I am ready to fall on my face.
We had a busy day today. After the 6AM breakfast, we had a 7AM training to beat the daytime heat which can be very uncomfortable. Agyag is turning into a monster… We have worked on her very hard today.
After the training we got a guided tour of the local museum and than went to see the Matai Stable. Later, we stopped by at a ceramic studio where we were also invited for lunch.
We had “lebbencs leves” a wide noodle soup with bacon, onion, potato, and red paprika cooked on open fire. It smelled delicious. If for no other reason, one must taste it simply for its name, “SLAMBUC.” It sounds so playful, fluffy and light – just as it tastes. And of course we had the ever present shot of palinka before lunch to help increasing our appetite. (Do not get alarmed, we had the palinka after 12PM…)
After lunch, we have learned wood sculpting/carving that I enjoyed a lot. I like the idea of hands on experience of various crafts media.
I also ran the trial field with Fruska today. She was great we had no problem. Agyag is a different story from a different planet…
