Today was a really refreshing break. The temperatures were cooler than they have been... I'm sure we didn't break 35C, and if we did, it didn't last more than a couple hours. We took a 2.5 hour bus ride out to Kalocsa (pronounced kah-loo-cha) - the town that Michelle lived in 15 years ago teaching ESL. After the enormous hustle of Vienna and the overwhelmingness of Budapest, it was a relaxed, pleasant trip and fun to experience Michelle's trip down memory lane.
I think Brent and I are giving up on getting the long term visitor visa for France. Brent found the web site of the French consulate in Vancouver which gives a more thorough list of things you need than what I'd found. The requirements include an in-person interview before you leave your country, three months of bank statements (printed off the internet don't count unless they're stamped by your bank), and a police check. We clearly don't have those things and to get them wouldn't be impossible, but pretty much as close to impossible as you can get. That's ok. We'll find ways to entertain ourselves outside of the Schengen Area. Their loss. ;)
