So our train ride to Prague started off great. We had a 6 person section (like in Harry potter) to ourselves. But it got worse. Bradden and I were sitting opposite each other against the window, but as we wanted to watch a movie, I moved next to him. We got to a random stop, and our carriage filled up. I had a man next to me, his wife opposite me and their son opposite to my left. Then we had an old, fat man that was covered in sweat and stunk so terribly sit opposite Bradden. We ...

Once on the grounds, we happened to be just in time to catch the ...
... Today's agenda consists of finding a coffee shop where we can sit back and take in the smells of European coffee while paging through 2 Timothy. European coffee is so rich and dark... its barely comparable to its American counterpart. For some reason I have a desire to find a quiet seat somewhere with a good view and pull out the moleskin to sketch a skyline... boring? ehh... sounds fun to me. We keep seeing signs for pig knee here, so ...
