The past few days I've been seeing the sites of Prague with Alex, my roomate from Israel who I met up with. Prague is a fantastic city, despite the hoards of tourists left, right and centre.
We went to see Swan Lake at the National Theatre there. It's hard to believe that for the price of seeing a movie at home you can see a professional ballet at an beautiful old theatre. The only problem was we only really saw half of it. Not because we were late, but because we had side balcony seats where we could physically only see half the stage!
I met up with my mom's cousin, Addie and her husband Milan, and their 3 kids, who live here in Prague. I had a really great visit with them, meeting them for the first time.
I've been here in Cesky Krumlov since last night. The weather is cold and grey but it's still a great town in the greyness of it all! I'm staying at this fantastic hotel that my cousins arranged for me, it's wonderful to have space after staying in 8-bed dorms!
Heading to Vienna tomorrow to meet Ari to continue the adventures...
