365/156+bonus

Food! I bought food! I have food! The hunger weeks are passed!

Since I moved to Austria, I didn’t really earned any money until now, so I made the last two weeks through with having only 2 euros 79 cents (at least at the beginning I had it, haha). Growing up in a family that’s finances are barely above the minimal life standard (I mean Hungarian life standard. You, Western Europeans don’t even try to imagine it), and having studied eight years abroad without any financial support, which means leading the double life of whole-time working and whole-time studying (yes, I’m a superhero and I never sleep), I became an expert survivor. Unfortunately this also resulted that I have no feeling for money at all, which is rather understandable, because I never had the possibility to learn how to deal with it. Life is complicated but eating is good.

For bonus a photo of the swimming Pegasus, because I’m on a Pegasus-kick lately.

I took this photo from under a bridge while waiting for the storm to pass by. I experienced some pretty hard storms in Holland, from the kind when you are desperately fighting your way against the tornadolike wind, icecold rain pouring cruelly on your face and soaking your clothes through; the wheels of your bike sunk into wildly flowing yellow waters of questionable origin and every meter is a new challenge, because you have to keep your eyes shut (ever tried biking blind? If not, you haven’t lived yet). You get the picture. Just the average Dutch storm in a seaside city, 360 days per year.

Well, this storm of yesterday was comparable to any Dutch storms I ever had the pleasure of making through on the bike.
