Ahoy from Praha! I had my very first look at the city today & let me tell you it was breath-taking. Between airports, college dorms & class rooms I finally felt like I was in Europe. There are a few of differenced we noticed right off when we entered the city, here are ust a few from my classmates & I:
Amelia: Tiny roads & scary driving! With a significant lack of stop lights, everybody simply GOES & they drive RIGHT next to each other! It’s crazy, I felt my heart beating out of my chest!
Zach: Sporadic people Some people would go over the moon for you, while others can’t be bothered.
Cooper: Flankey ball a German drinking game involving a basketball, a round of beer, & some crazy competition.
Sornelia: Flying on an air plane Her first time.
Clara: Tuition here at University free for Czech, only $500 a semester for English courses.
Russle: Babies on campus & different language there are little kids everywhere on our college campu! & they ride bikes with no pedals
Heather: Different smells Big city smels vs our little beach town
George: Integration between staff & students (ack of fear of loss of respect & authority. Professor-student equality. Our professors are our equals out of the classroom.
Shawn: Being & living at a University (living in dorms, roommate, sharing bathrooms)
Seva: Language! Unique letters, pronunciation specific letters and new names
William: Foliage New flowers, plants, green houses on campus
OH! & fun fact:
Czech Republic consumes more beer than anywhere else in the world! Around 144 liters per person! (USA consumes about 75 per person)
Here are just a few photos we took!
