(This post could also be titled Iter Sopianās, Fahrt nach Fünfkirchen, or Utazás Pécsre, the translations into Latin, German, and Hungarian, the dominant languages of the town at various points in history.)

The American Corner in Pécs hosts a weekly English conversation club to give Hungarians learning English a chance to practice; the American Fulbrighter in Pécs didn’t want to host it (doing her cultural ambassadorship elsehow, I guess), so it’s tried to recruit a new native English speaker every week, mostly from the other Fulbrighters in Hungary. So, I took a trip to Pécs today to host that club. Making idle conversation is hard, though. Then I did a bit of sightseeing in Pécs; I’m not returning until tomorrow, though.
