Being in class while in Prague is BRUTAL, even reading for class is a struggle. I like my international dispute resolution professor a lot and the class is pretty interesting because we do a lot of group activities. International environmental law however, not so great. The professor is nice though.

Yesterday was our first day of classes and it was very cold and rainy so Amanda and I just went home after class and read for class. Then I went up to meet up with Negin, Paul, Eman and Maegen where they live. We then went to meet up with some other classmates to go see the play Kafka and Son which was showing at the Fringe Festival here. Kafka and son was written by Franz Kafka and is a play about a letter he wrote to his father. The letter is extremely intense and angry and basically ridicules his father for doing the whole "do as I say, not as I do" thing. He then writes a rebuttal he thinks his father would give. Honestly, I wasn't really a fan of the plot but the actor was good. It was a 45 minute monologue with lots of yelling...

Then we all went to dinner and I found grilled vegetables for the first time, although they were covered in salt. All they eat here is meat and potatoes, which is cool for the first two days... Then we we to a tea house/hookah bar below Negin & Maegen's. Negin, Paul and Eman are all Persian and can speak Farsi and so was the tea house so we had fun trying to learn some Farsi words, so far I know Salom dooset daram azizam which means hello I like you very much. Then I crashed at Maegan and Negin's because Amanda was out with some of our other classmates.

We're going on a boat ride down the Vitava river then to the Prague zoo, which is supposedly epic. Then to the museum of communism on Thursday which I believe also has a concentration camp that was a labor camp? Not completely sure but I will post once we go! Also planning on heading to Brno and Vienna this weekend! I love it here...
