No longer East of Eden

I need to get back to work, but I just wanted to post some pictures taken yesterday on a mountain bike ride I took with Geof.
Completely inspired by a blog I found on-line about a British guy who has biked from London to Tehran (check it out: Simon's Travels), plus excited that now Geof also has a bike, so now I have a partner, I decided that it was time to put my mountain bike to some real use!

Yesterday we headed out into the sea of vineyards surrounding Eger.

These are some pictures of the gorgeous views we had of the countryside, none of which, by the way, do justice to what we saw.

I was in Debrecen this past weekend; there was a graduation concert for a friend, then a wedding in Nyiregyháza of two people from our church, and then I taught in the Debrecen church Sunday morning. But now that I'm back in Eger and really enjoying what this area has to offer, I just think of how much I was missing all those years in Debrecen, on the Puszta, East of Eden.

To think, I thought Hungary was not a beautiful place! All I had to do was leave the Puszta!

    Nick, you've been in Hungary toooo long! Come back to U.S. for some real scenery! . . . (just give'n ya a hard time!)
    Everything is so nice and green in the pictures. Is there a lot of rain there? It looks very flat. Are there mountains nearby? (I know NOTHING about Hungary - obviously!)
