north of where i'm used to
I have never lived for an extended period of time this far north. I certianly will not pretend that Hungary (southern Hungary in fact!) is particularly far north, but it's much further north than California (Bay Area), New Mexico, or South Texas. Actually, with each prior move, I had gone further south. But now, I'm much further north, especially compared to South Texas. However, this is certainly no Aberdeen or Stavanger, two bastions of the North Sea where this industry could certainly take me. The sun is already setting before 1600 and I'm not really itching for a place where I can watch the sunset at 1500.
