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.

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...
