Good Morning All from the beautiful city in Europe known as Prague, the Mother of Cities, located in the Czech Republic. Some of the loyal followers will remember that I have been here before and it truly is a stunning city. There is an “old town” which is filled with cobblestone streets, a few beautiful churches, tons of local shops with handmade crafts, and cafes. We flew here yesterday from Budapest and arrived here in the late morning. After checking in to the hotel, we immediately went to a pizza place which has become a tradition for us camp directors. They have some of the best pizza I have ever had. In the afternoon, we took the metro right into the heart of the city and did a little bit of shopping. My brother and sister-in-law are expecting a baby in the coming weeks (so I will be an uncle for the first-time) and so I found something cute for the babies room. If my brother is reading this, he is probably going to be so embarrassed that I am telling you all this!
Last night, we went to dinner at a local Czech restaurant, which included a show and dancing. A family of 3 sibling musicians entertained us for hours and shared videos of what the Czech Republic was like 80 years ago. It was a very nice cultural dinner and ended with tons and tons of folk dancing and singing. I must admit I went up and did my fair share of dancing and if you are lucky, Jcal will post a few video clips in the coming weeks.
Well today is the staff hiring fair here in Prague and then tomorrow…that is it. The end of Year 3 of Where in the World is Eric Forti! I will put some statistics together for all of you about miles flown, nights sleeping in hotels (and nights sleeping on airplanes), etc. I have had an absolute blast sharing my travels and experiences with all of you over the past 5 weeks or so. I am so honored and privileged that I am able to have a job at the best camp in the world, which allows me to spend my summers at camp with all of you, and continue my passion for traveling and experiencing new places. I thank you for joining in to the fun and of course we will announce the winners of Where in the World within the coming weeks. So, stay tuned!
I will blog again soon, but probably from the US. So, from my last international destination until after the summer, I say goodbye and have a wonderful day!
