As I sit here in my dorm I felt that I should write about what I’ve been up to. As of today, I’ve been gone from the US for 2 weeks. It seems that time is going so fast and I should be going home soon but I know this is just the beginning. That feeling I receive from that is a bitter sweet. Things here in Prague are so different; but isn’t that the point? I’m trying to keep my head up and take one day at a time.
We, the AIFS kids, are in an intensive Czech class currently. The class is not helping my spirits. Fortunately today class was a little better. I hope I begin to feel more confident in my language skills soon. In the mornings before Czech class I’ve been adventuring around. Yesterday I found a delicious pastry shop close to my dorms. I also have seen many places I’d like to photograph when the weather and light gets better.
I’ve also been on several weekend and day trips where I’ve seen other parts of the Czech Republic. Thus far, my favorite tour has been the brewery tour of Pilsner Urquell. It was really interesting to see how the beer is made. I also enjoyed tasting unfiltered beer that they do not sell to the public. Well, for not that is it but soon I’ll have more pictures and writing to come!
Well, I’ve arrived in London and I’m feeling a bit blue. That was to be expected though. We’re in the Hyde Park section of London and I find my self wishing we were directly downtown. Tomorrow we’ll go on tours and I’ll get my feel for the city I’ve seen before. I’m missing Paulie Cat and Adam dearly but I know four months is going to fly by me. I send my love to all who are reading this.
It is funny, one’s life, the way it turns and winds down it’s perpetual path of fate. I am about in embark on a 102 day study abroad program in Prague, Czech Republic. I can only say hello in Czech, but I have faith that this will be a great event in my life. I’m leaving behind my family, my boyfriend, and my cat; I know they will all be waiting for me when the semester is over. I cannot wait to experience new culture and make new friends. But if you’d like, wish me hodně štěstí, or good luck!
