John's Journey to Hungary

Current Location

Budapest, Hungary

Szia! (Hi!) I'm participating in a program called "Budapest Semesters in Math." Join me for the next four months on my journey to Budapest, the capital city of Hungary!


It has been two weeks since I arrived in Budapest. Read on to see and learn about what I have been doing.


In Budapest, math is taught different compared to other countries. I think the approach here offers valuable lessons that other countries can copy.

Field Notes

I sat down with my number theory professor and asked him a couple questions about his life. He is a cool guy!


Last Sunday, I went hiking through a trail that is located thirty minutes away by bus outside Budapest. We walked through the Akirkepek region. In total, it took us seven hours to hike 18 miles!
