Wow. I’ve been here over a week. I’m glad I arrived on a weekend, because that meant that I had two days to spend with my host mom, visiting different places in Prague.
So the first day i walked around Zličín a bit, it’s a lovely area, but quite close to two major highways. There are so many beautiful houses in Zličín, I’m looking forward to exploring it more. The picture below is of a pond near the center of Zličín
The second day I was here my host mom and I went into the Center of Prague and walked around a lot. We went to the old town, old town square, Prague castle, Charles bridge and Wenceslas square(not necessarily in that order though). The images down below are from all these places.
There was also an audiovisual exhibit at a concert hall(I think) that had Bedřich Smetana’s Vltava put to a bunch of video clips of The area around Prague and around the river. It was so so beautiful, I love that piece of music so much and I can’t wait until I can go hiking here. I also had my first rotary meeting on Wednesday, it was so so fun, everyone that I’ve met so far seems really nice. It’s a rather small club, with only about 14 members. There will be two other inbound exchange students in the same club as me.
Another cool experience is that I got to go to a czech grocery store, everything is so different, it was really cool.
Over all I’ve had a pretty good first week, I did go running a few times so that was really fun.
