Yesterday we went paddle boating on the Vltava River. It was so much fun! A big group of us rented three boats, paddled to the middle of the river, and spent an hour on the water in the 60 degree sun. The view of the city from the water is different, as we were looking at it from a different perspective. It was a great thing to do as one of the last events of the trip. Leonardo got his tan on at the front of our boat as we cruised along :). Last night a few of us celebrated the end of a journey by going out to a nice dinner and having French infused Czech food. It was so yummy!
Today we walked around the city one last time, mostly walking along the water. Prague is definitely a beautiful city to visit. The sun shimmers off the water onto the buildings lining the shore. The islands in the middle of the river house parks where people can go and relax on a nice day. The people are warm, welcoming, and actually like Americans! Tonight is the last night we have together as a program, consequently we are having dinner as a group at a local place our professors found. I’m sure it will be fun, lively, and full of emotion.
This trip has been an amazing experience. I have learned so much about history and people in general. I am so excited to come home and share all of it with you guys! Tomorrow we are getting up at 7 a.m to take a flight to Rome, where we will spend a day, then a few of us are traveling to Dublin for a few days. It will be a great way to finish off the program!
