Pilsner

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 :)

Sbohem prozatim!

    Now this looks like an incredible experience, definitely unique! And that bridge looks absolutely beautiful. There must be so much history behind all of this architecture!

    Catching up with several of your recent postings. An 8 hour bus ride – sounds arduous, but what a great way to see the countryside. Your reliance on walking the cities you visit is the absolute best way to really see them. Keep it up! Your visit to Golden Lane – sounds like an authentic reflection of ancient Prague. Great picture of you at “N 17” doorway. Learning the ins and outs of the Pilsner beer- a great adjunct to your worldly education. As with all your postings, they show your intense desire to take full advantage of this wonderful travel opportunity to see and experience everything you can. You are at the perfect age and possess the optimum mindset to maximize the benefits of your trip. You are the “poster girl” of doing it right!!
