We spent the Christmas eve with Hungarian friends. As an immigrant, London is all about work and it's very rare to socialize with friends, because of the huge distances and the lack of free time.

In January it was almost impossible to find job, but I managed to get one in a bakery. I spent 3 weeks unloading bagels from trays. It was a very hard physical job and the permanent workers were rude.
