First Week...

So we've been in Prague a week now and we already feel at home. Its such a beautiful country thats exploding with art and culture...not to mention the weather right now is in the 70s. Our neighborhood is quaint and amazing and our neighbors are super nice. We haven't had a whole lot of time to explore the city yet because our school's training is super intense this month (think 8am-8pm most days), but its really enjoyable and the teacher's are fantastic. We even got to plan and teach our own 45 min english lesson to czech students on our third day here, so we're learning to teach pretty quick. Shells also turned 25 this week so we went to an amazing vegetarian restaurant called Clear Head, which we'll definitely be frequenting a lot. ok here are a few pics so far........
