Today, I arrived in Prague; after a long and strenuous nine hour flight to Amsterdam, with an obnoxious (but nonetheless nice) person next to me, a layover that consisted in a venti Starbucks frappechino and a power nap, A LOT of snapchat photos, and another plane ride. As the plane approached Prague, a surge of excitement shot through me. As we exited the plane and entered the airport, it just looked like America. The fast-food restaurants, the rush of people, nothing really seemed too different. However, once our group hobbled onto the tram with all of our suitcases and we headed into the centre, I truly noticed the difference between anywhere that I have been in America and here. The shapes, colors, and designs of all of the beautiful architecture was nothing like I had seen before. There were tons of different street performers; singing, miming, playing instruments, even blowing bubbles. Unlike being in New York City where each empty spot on the side walk becomes filled with a desperate street performer, being passed by people rushing on their way to work, people in Prague have this sense of interest and support that keeps even busy people clapping and pulling out their phones to take a picture. The rest of the day we spent walking around and checking out some places to eat (we hit up an all-you-can-eat sushi bar), and I’m excited to see what tomorrow brings!
