These people here in Prague are such nice people. A professor at Charles University was an angel helping me find a place to stay. I gave him a pin from Omaha (it said Omaha: Rare.Well-Done. so I explained the whole steak phenomenon in Omaha. He spoke great English.
Today I woke up at 4:30am and couldn't go back to sleep so I took a shower and went for a walk
. Lovely day. It's great seeing all the Sokol people from everywhere in their uniforms all over the city. There are a bunch of Czech ladies staying on my floor and it's a little awkward seeing them walking around in their nightgowns in groups of three and four. But anyway...I am having a great time so far and am still definitely in "adjustment mode". My Czech is getting me around fairly well. I wish I brought Dave's converter on this trip, I could really use it for my phone, computer and laptop.
Well we're leaving to go to the Slet now, I'm going with the Benaks from Omaha. I wanted to catch Skye before she left but she was gone already at like 8 when I got to their hotel here. I don't know when my next update will be. Later.
P.S. Sorry no photos, I'm working on it...
After a long flight to Frankfurt yesterday, I had the pleasure of spending an eternity (7 hours) in the hot airport waiting for my connection to Prague. Anyways, so I finally made it to Prague at about 5 and didn't get to my hotel until 9pm. I'm staying in this complex of dorms kind of place. It's right by a huge soccer stadium. I hope they don't kick me out while I'm gone. I was going to stay 3 nights but only paid for one so far. Do they have check out times at dorms? Well I'll find that out later.
