Quick question to anyone in the Hungarian Wine Industry... Why is it
next to impossible to get Tokaji Aszu Aszenszia in Calgary, Canada?
Best damn wine in the world and these bloody Canadians won't bring it
in to the liquor stores. The rednecks in this city figure that if
it's French (bland) it's the best. I want Tokaj!!! Help!! Please!!!

I received a phone call this morning, and I'm flying to Washington
tommorow morning. It's a short notice and I have no idea what to expect,
but if I qualify as an interpreter, I'll be sent to Kaposvar, Hungary in a
few days to assist the U.S. Army as an intreperter.
If you are a member of HAHN, please let other members know, and I promise
that I will pick up where we left off when I get back.
At this point I know nothing other than the fact that I get interviewed on
Monday, get a physical, and must qualify for a security clearance. If all
goes well, I'm going to Hungary the following day. (They say it's cold in
Kaposvar this time of yaer. (Ha Ha)
I want to wish each and everyone of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New
Year and I hope to be in contact with all of you when I get back.
