Dobry den! It’s been two weeks since class has started, and I’ve already learned so much about the Czech Republic! The professors have such a unique and personal viewpoint on economic transitions, and their insights give so much more meaning to the entire experience here.
Prague is absolutely beautiful! The center of the city is full of cathedrals and baroque buildings and cobblestone streets, and the outskirts are dotted with a mixture of Soviet-style buildings. It’s such an interesting juxtaposition. There really isn’t anything else quite like it.
I’ve been so lucky to meet some wonderful classmates with whom I’ve been able to do some weekend travel. We have been to Vienna and London, and we are planning to do some more travel in these last two weekends.
My time here has been amazing, but at the same time, I really can’t wait to get home. I miss my family, air conditioning, American food, my own bed and shower, and so much more. However, this has been such a learning experience for me, and learning to live without the modern American conveniences has been a true lesson in patience! I’ll always carry the memories created here with me for life.
