Missmc has been busy interviewing new au pair candidates.  It is an interesting process that speaks volumes about current economic conditions throughout Europe.  This season it is the year of the Hungarian.  Italy was the summer pick.  Previous to that, there was a bountiful supply of Polish workers.
