catch up

arrived in prague friday evening and settled in to my new dorm room.... makes me feel young to live in a dorm! hehe
it is quite cold! the room is small but i like it very much, feeling rather lucky to have a room to myself. internet is on and i even got the IT guy to open a previously blocked port to warcraft!
i found a small grocery about 3 blocks up the street (and when i say “up”, i mean it!), right next to a second hand store! haven’t figured out the whole hot plate scenario yet so i have been living on grapes and fresh bread. i did buy a little coffee pot today, so i can’t ask for more!
yesterday i ventured to the city center. i can see the twin spires of one of the cathedrals from the balcony of my dorm room, so i just followed that general direction. i found the astronomical clock just as it was chiming. awesome! i didn’t bring the camera, but will next time. i do have some pics to post from the balcony of my room. yep, i have a balcony too...sweet :)
found the department store today and picked up a few little survival things, like a can opener, skillet, bowl, etc :) ain’t the simple life grand?







more to come!

Great to hear you're still alive. Are you getting by in English, or are you resorting to your skill in German and Czech?? ;)

i am getting by in silence ;) my german consists of please, thank you and excuse me! (though i do recall various body parts, but not sure they would be in context)

I was only in Prague for 24 hours, and a lot of that was taken up with work, so I'll be looking to you for tourism advice!! For the record, I saw the Jewish Quarter and the Old Town Square. I have a feeling you'll be going well beyond that - and maybe even exposing the seamy underbelly of the city............

heh me? exposing something? surely you jest ;)
there is an incredible amount of theater and opera that it kills me to be on a student budget! Pygmalion is showing....and Romeo and Juliet....

I'll be in Munich in July, but I bet you'll be home before then.....

I can't rule out another visit to some part of Europe before than, but there are no definite plans!

I may just show up with my camera when it warms up a bit.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
