Summer in Praha

Ahoj! I’ve been in Prague for a little over a week now and have already seen and learned more than I expected to in my time here. I am here studying International Reporting and got the opportunity to travel to Teplice, a small town known for its healing spas, to conduct interviews. We spoke to the mayor, the spa owner, a human rights activist and citizens of the town to understand more about the growing Arab population in their community.


We have definitely been staying busy here in the Czech Republic. Last weekend I went on a day trip with some other students in the program to Kutna Hora to visit the Bone Church, as well as another Cathedral and some local restaurants, and earlier this week we went on a pedal boat through the Vltava River. CIEE also paid for tickets to see Romeo and Juliet at the State Opera! Today my class went to Bloomberg News to speak to the editor about our futures in the field of journalism, and tomorrow we will be going to the town of Liberec to study modern art.

 We’ve met some interesting characters here (like some men from Italy who chased us with water guns on their segues), learned how to maneuver public transportation and had more fried cheese than I thought was possible. Now we’re leaving for one of our weekends trips… cau!
