Zoologick√° zahrada

Went to the Prague Zoo this saturday. Now normally I'm completely uninterested in going to the zoo because I had season passes to the San Diego Zoo when I was a kid. Since it's the best zoo in the world I figured any other one would be a waste of my time. But I got to say that the Prague Zoo is legit! You can get so close to some of the animals, the enclosures and habitats where really creative. I thought they would be all closed in and sad looking but all the animals seemed pretty happy to me.  My favorite part was the ring tailed-lemurs.  They were just hanging out in the open, no cage or anything. They got so close that I could have pet one. One lady even had a lemur eating peanuts out of her hand until a zoo worker yelled at her.

Sometimes a phrase just forms in my mind...

I wrote this today during a break from learning Czech. I like it.

I am a swiftly tilting planet.

I know the way through the stars.

The secret of the universe; I know it.

And I've seen all the cards.

Sega Genesis

Last night we caught a hedgehog. I'm not kidding. We went for a stroll through the woods by the hotel just as it was about to get dark. We were walking up a hill when we saw a little animal up ahead, strolling across the path. We immediately broke into a sprint. "What is it!?!" (We really miss our pets.) It was a cute little hedgehog! Total Beatrix Potter status. It didn't run, just curled into a ball so we wrapped him in my jacket and now he's in my room with some leaves and other plants. His name is Sonic! He kept me up rolling around my room but he finally curled up under my bed. It must have been dusty because I heard him sneeze a few times.

Jazz Dock

Friday night we went to a place called the Jazz Dock with some friends from class. It was right on the river. It had such a cool atmosphere; just a bunch of people hanging out and relaxing to this really great band called Stoner. I loved their music, it was so colorful but also soothing. Like looking at those Monet paintings of a bridge.

Castle-facing backyard. I bet fairies live in it.

Prague knows what's up.
Here are just a few of my pictures in Prague. It's taken me awhile because this computer is in czech.

I've been in Prague for a week now and it is bloody magical. It's like being at Disneyland but SO much better because everything is real and it's not as crowded and there aren't annoying people dressed up as Goofy and Minnie Mouse. The best word me and Sebastian have come up with for this place is "legit." We keep saying that about everything. "This castle is legit." "I can't get over this city's legitness." "This weed is LEGIT!!" You wanna know how legit this place is? Last night we went and ate these amazing turkish sandwiches (they're like tortas only better) in front of a magnificent museum that faces a big shop lined street that goes down to the river. We watched the city lights and then we walked down the street drinking cans of Czech beer, right in front of the cops and children and little poodles because nobody cares.
