We went to the caves in Moravia yesterday and to some abyss place. The caves were so spectacularly amazingly glorious! Not really, let's be serious. I mean, the dimensions in meters are great and all that but caves are so dark and damp and cold, it's like who can really get excited about that? I enjoyed myself. The abyss was a gorge-like place. I wouldn't come to Europe just to see it.
My cell phone broke yesterday, I'm so distraught. It was my watch, my second camera and my calculator for money exchanges and temp. conversions. It only fell from my lap to the floor of the bus, that shouldn't be a fatal accident. Ugh. Oh well, at least I have insurance I guess.
My back has been kind of hurting since I got to the Czech Republic but I'm trying not to worry about it and hope it will get better. I think it's getting better. I remembered today that like in fourth grade I had mild scoliosis. I hope it isn't back.
Today I was definitely uplifted by your e mails and comments, so thank you all very much.
I should write more. There are a few places that have air conditioning here, but not the dorms unfortunately. Some places claim to have air conditioning but it doesn't feel like it (the classrooms). There is a breeze today which is great unless you're indoors like I am now.
The British guy Simon is quite amusing at times. All the British people are so British. For example, they say they're feeling "peckish" when they're a little hungry. Doesn't sound good to me. But whatever, as long as I can keep from saying "a bit" every 5 seconds, I'm happy. But I like Simon, he's a great guy to have a conversation with. He's interesting. Same with Enrique, he's really nice. Oh, so at our soccer game two days ago, it was 4 on 4 and every player was from a different country. The countries were: USA, Germany, Italy, Spain, Finland, Austria, France, and I can't remember the last one unfortunately. It was pretty cool.
P.S. Look at the photos from the first couple of days.
