Yesterday a friend and I walked around Prague and found a cute park near our apartments. It was a beautiful day, so we relaxed on a bench well into the early afternoon. After class, a group of us walked around the city. Although we didn’t see any new sites, it was nice to walk around and build on our impressions of the city. Yesterday afternoon I had dinner with a friend from my sorority who is studying abroad in Spain. It was really nice to see someone from home and share our respective adventures.
Today we all took a train to Pilsen to tour the Pilsner Urquell Beer Brewery. It was interesting to see how the beer is made and learn more about the process. Leonardo learned a new trade! At the end of the tour we got to sample beer straight from the barrel, a unique experience. We ate lunch and walked around the town in the afternoon.
The Czech Republic is a beautiful country. Not only is the city of Prague breathtaking, but I learned that the countryside is beautiful as well. We saw rolling hills and cute little towns on our way to Pilsen today. We even saw a few farms, it reminded me of home
