A highlight reel from another week in Prague!
On Monday in my Jewish History class we participated in a ceremony in Namesti Miru as part of “Jam-ha-Shoa,” the worldwide Holocaust Remembrance day. We individually read off the names of victims of the Holocaust and got to listen to others read it in their own languages.
Tuesday myself and a few of the girls went for late night food at a roof-top restaurant that Lyss found. It had a beautiful view of the lit-up city, as well as a great beer menu.
Wednesday after classes most of the girls from my program got on a bus to Croatia for the weekend. Luckily the guys were still around so we had a great night of trivia at The Globe (of which we were the victors!).
Thursday I hit up a few new cafes to work on homework and in the evening got to have dinner with Alyssa and her mom and grandma who are in town to visit. It was a treat to be with a family for an evening, and definitely made me miss being with the people I love most.
Friday I took the day to see some things in Prague that have been on the list for a long time. That included the Tim Burton exhibition and Vysehrad Castle and its grounds.
Saturday I caught an early train to Germany and hiked to the Bastei Bridge. When I got back to Prague, I met up with Madeleine and her family and joined in on their evening fun—karaoke and late night pub food!
This evening I attended Don Giovanni at the Estates Theatre, which was written by Mozart right here in Prague.
Another week, another bundle of memories.
‘Til next time
