On Wednesday, I went to my one and only class then headed down to Stare Mesto for a little wandering aimlessly and some shopping
On Thursday, Meghan, Jennifer and I went to CoCafe for dinner and then Meg and I stayed up until 6 am watching Grey's Anatomy on DVD. It was fun, but I was just glad that I didn't really have anything to do the next day. I also registered for classes, and I got a FANTASTIC schedule. I am taking two really cool history courses, one moderately interesting political science class, and three really boring education classes. The history makes up for any suffering in the other classes.
On Friday, Meg, Jennifer and I went to Podebrady in search of Czech crystal. We found a great little store, but I didn't end up buying anything. A train ticket to Podebrady costs about $2, so I am not worried about getting back there. We walked through a really pretty little park, and looked around the town a little, but the last train back to Prague was at 5:15 pm, so we didn't have as much time as we would have liked there. After that, we all went and took naps so that we would have the energy to go out dancing that night. Jen and I made it, Meg was not so lucky
On Saturday, Meg was planning to camp out at Bohemia Bagel with her laptop and free refills on coffee because she is behind in some of her classes. Thinking that I would meet up with her there, I left the dorms at about 11:30 and headed downtown for a very productive day of walking around aimlessly. I thought I would scout out the Christmas shopping scene a little, maybe find a cafe and read, I didn't really have a plan.
I stumbled on the Jewish cemetery in Josefov, and peeked my head in. For some reason, you couldn't go in. I took a picture through the door though. I bought my self a very lovely lavender pashmina, and continued on my merry way. I crossed the river, and what did I find but the Franz Kafka Museum and Gift Shop! On a side note; when I went to the communist museum, it was 140 Ck, which is like $8. I really thought the Kafka Museum was going to be even more expensive, but there was a student discount that took about 1/2 off, and I got in for 60 CK, which is about $2.50, I was stoked.
The Museum was so cool. Everything was so artistically displayed
I walked around town for another few hours and then headed home
On Sunday, I got up and again went to Bo Bagel, this time with Jessica, Jennifer, Maanda, and Meghan. I had something different than what I usually get (Glenda's Morning Special) and it also was fabulous. There was real guacamole and that kind of made my day. After lunch, Meghan, Jennifer, Maanda and I went to Wenceslas Square to try and find Jennifer a coat and Meghan a smaller purse. Both missions failed, but I saw some very cute things. There is a sweater that I think I will go back and buy, and there were also some cute sweat pants (I swear its not an oxymoron) that I think I will get. They are the kind of sweat pants that can be worn in public, meaning they aren't entirely sloppy looking. Good day. After that, we all came home, took our afternoon naps, and then geared up for another night on the town. This ended up being a night in Meghan's room watching T.V. It's okay though, maybe I needed a low key weekend for once.
Monday I had class and then went to Einstein's Pizzeria with Meghan and Jessica. After dinner I had every intention of being social because all of my friends were back from Poland, but that never materialized and I fell asleep early.
Tune in for Next week's thrilling installment of my travel blog. I will try to get it out before mid week next time too. Sorry guys. I know you were on the edges of your seats waiting for it.
