Ivana's cousin Michal volunteered to take me to Prague. Goodgosh it was gorgeous. The city is so old...and a little smelly. Highlights of the night:
Learning vocab word#1 for the day on the drive there: dopravni zacpa=traffic jam (if you forget to say dopravni then zacpa means the kind of jam you get when you don't have enough fiber in your diet), hiking up steep steep streets, crazy midget lady at the oldest tavern in town coming outside and hissing at me when I got close to the building for a photo (really hissing), climbing up 138 stairs to top of Charles' Bridge only to be attacked by 10,000 of the biggest spiders I have ever seen (vocab word#2: spider=pavouk), and eating the first Czech meal that made me want to vomit (doesn't compare to dumplings & goulash, rabbit, stinky cheese, and raddish sandwiches I've had). Praha ha.
