Sunday Afternoon at the Strand
I spent Sunday afternoon at the "Strand", It was buzzing, hundreds of people enjoying themselves. I went with Kathy , Kenneth, Amy and Yasmina, we went to watch Kenny MC for a promotion. He is working there for 5 weekends during the summer holidays, and he is very good. It was very hot and most people were in the pools ( I think there are four pools) and now a new ripple pool. I had some whitebait freshly cooked , delicious. The last time I had them was in Cornwall but , my goodness they cost a lot more there. There was a lot of stalls selling hot corn on the cob, crepes , hamburgers, freshly made chips , and lots more. It only costs three new Ron (60p) to go in so quite a few families can afford to go and swim, picnic, laze on the grass or whatever! We have three girls here helping (students) they thought it was great and as good as being at any of the holiday resorts.
Well I am going for a Romanian lesson tonight after a break as my teacher Tina was on a well deserved holiday, she works 8 hours a day and does tutoring in the evening and has a little boy to look after too.I have been practising , but still find it difficult, the older you get the harder it is to learn new skills.
I made plum jam this week. I went to see an old friend in Saleani (Mariana) and she gave me lots of delicious plums and home made Tomato juice , she is wonderful and she was so pleased to see me and the same for me too , I wish I lived a little nearer and I could see more of her.
Gloria ( my friend from Belfast) has been away and I have really missed her, be glad when she comes back. Hajni has been good though and now has a little car, she took me to "Jackson" and I got a couple of things and we hope to go in to Hungary soon to the markets.
Must go now and practise some more before my lesson ha ha !!!!
