A Picture Post

Dear Readers,

I know you’ll all be torn up about this, but the following post will be short. That’s right, short. (I think it’s about time after that novel last week).

Also, I thought I would tell you a little bit about other people’s days (not because mine haven’t been loads of fun, but just because…because)

My roommate Madeleine found a bikram yoga studio today where she was in this steaming hot room for a full hour and a half pulling off crazy yoga moves. She’s supposed to wake up for a 6:45 am yoga class tomorrow—props to her if she makes it. She also chopped off all her hair (ok not all of it) so she’s winning the “most transformed” prize.

My other roomie Liz is a pro walker and explorer. I’m pretty sure she’s seen more of Prague than any of the rest of us combined.  Today she introduced me to something called “carobella” (Google it) and she just gave me a children’s book called “22 Czech Legends”—bed time stories perhaps? She and I had a very long tram ride adventure that taught us we should always check the number on the first tram car. The most enjoyable part of that entire adventure was the when we realized we needed to switch trams, and in the process of hopping off had the doors close between us. Luckily they re-opened after a brief moment of panic and we were reunited without any Hollywood type chase scene.

Casey, the lovely lady I get to share a room with, has introduced me to the wonders of pepper-jack mac ‘n cheese. In other news, we mastered the art of not tripping over each-other’s Ethernet cords, and enjoyed our first movie night. Speaking of which, if you’re fed up with me singing “Let it Go,” you know who to talk to.

And now, because as the cliché goes “A picture is worth—“ (you know the rest), I’ll let them speak for the rest of my week.

Winery where we enjoyed a drop dead delicious meal and of course the wine selection straight from the cellar.

Part of the Karst Cave tour--we emerged from the cave into this abyss. Essentially it felt like a scene out of Jurassic Park.
