Hello and happy Sunday! It is rainy and grey here, but that didn’t stop me from exploring the city on a morning run today and finding Letna park where there was a great view of the city and green-ish grass! Grass is such a novelty around these parts.
Yesterday I checked out the local library that is literally a 3 minute walk from our apartment. Inside I found a magical tower of books.
I took a little while to explore the library, and it has an English section! Albeit, I haven’t heard of most of the books that this section contains, it still has more books than one person could probably read in 25 years (200 of them?). So I got all of the paperwork that I need to get a library card, and I will be back there soon to sign up! To get a library card you either need to pay a deposit of 1,000 czk or you need to have proof that you live here from the foreign police.
This week has been a pretty “ordinary” week – as ordinary as one’s week could be while living in a foreign city. We didn’t take any trips, but we’re hoping to next weekend. Either way, on Friday night we went to a bar right near our house that looked like an adult version of a treehouse. There was writing all over the walls, a guitarist playing on stage who was simply a brave bar patron, and a giant dog mingling with the drinkers.
Even when a week or day here isn’t overtly exciting, there is always something to see, something to experience, and something to be thankful for as a Prague Expat!
