Hello, dear readers! I hope you are still out there. I realize I have been neglecting my responsibility of maintaining the blog, but it is also not much of a surprise to me. Let me explain.
First off, I had my excursion to the continent for my Spring Break. I stayed for five days in Amsterdam and then six days in Prague, both of which were fabulous. Amsterdam is a very advanced and aware city. Bike lanes are literally everywhere and cars, though abundant, are not used for most city travel. The dam for which the city receives its name allows for much of the city to be riverfront property. Down the street from our hostel was the Van Gogh Museum, holding much of his life’s work. We also went to the Amsterdam Zoo, which is much more liberal than American zoos. So much so that a monkey actually sat on my head for a bit inside the rainforest house! Prague was much more beautiful than I was expecting. A lot of older architecture has been saved, since the city was mainly untouched from World War II. Prague, though mostly agnostic, still maintains churches on almost every corner. These are primarily for tourists. Speaking of tourism, it is incredibly cheap to eat and drink in Prague if you stay away from the tourist traps. Seriously, a good beer (a half liter worth) was about one and a half euros, about two dollars.
Besides all that, I’ve been back in Tully Cross, studying my butt off. Paper deadlines are coming into view. I actually have to go study right now, but I will be trying to make more updates. They will be shorter, but more frequent. I hope that you keep reading! I have many more adventures to tell you all about, like climbing mountains, pub shenanigans, and what happens when your landlord evicts you without warning. Talk to you soon, readers. Cheers!
