A Travellerspoint blog


sunny 29 °C

I apologize for not updating for a while. I didn't mean to worry anyone, i've just been extremely busy. We had our first critique today in Photo, i'm gonna try to post the images from that crit on my flickr account. They are too big to fit on my photo space here on travellerspoint. Uh, since the last time i've updated, its been extremely hot here. Something like 95 degrees here and with no air conditioning located in any building, including our dorms, this makes for a somewhat uncomfortable experience. Before any of you start to have questions as to why Czech people, or the rest of Europe for that matter, don't have air conditioning, it's because it's normally not this hot, except for a few days during the summer. Tomorrow is supposed to be much cooler and rainy all day, so hopefully that will help our situation some. This weekend, Polly and I plan on going with a group of students here with UNO on a trip to Poland, Krakow and Warsaw to be specific. Yes, Auschwitz is on our list of things to visit, and to be quite honest, I can't wait. No, i'm not morbid. I think, however, that in order to truly learn about something like Auschwitz and World War II, you can only visit it in person. Learning about it in a classroom does it no justice. Below is a photo of our architecture class on one of our "field trips" and a photo of the Vltava river with most of the more prominent bridges crossing it, the one with all the people on it being the Charles Bridge.

Until next time...
