Getting to Prague has seemingly taken months, but alas I have finally arrived. It all started before Halloween with the Visa application process as well as choosing the place I would want to live for the next 5 months. I chose Prague (Praha); and from what I can tell so far I think I made a very good decision. 

The flight from San Francisco was very long, but I was expecting that; I was hoping to get an emergency isle seat because of the gratuitous amounts of leg room those seats have in comparison to the regular economy seats. The flight was pretty good for the most part aside from a decent amount of turbulence over the UK. I had a 4 hour lay over in London, and in that time I decided it would be in my best interest to eat at a bar in the airport. I had a sausage and mashed potato dish that was very good as well as a nice tall Stella Artois. 

 Although I am sure it would be an amazing experience to study abroad in England I am definitely glad that I am not for the financial aspect. The US dollar is about .57 Pounds so it isn't cheap in the least to try and live there, especially for 5 months. On the other hand the accents are pretty bad-ass and I would not mind one bit trying to have conversation talking about the bloody pub with my mates. 

The flight from London to Prague was very short only about a hour and a half and I honestly slept most of the time, who would ever think that sitting down for 12 + hours on a plane would get you so exhausted. Kinsey and I got to Praha at about 5 in the evening which was right about in line with the sunset which was really nice. I stayed at the Marriot which is literally right across the street from the airport which made things very simple. The time adjustment didn't do me any favors and I wasn't able to sleep much, hence the writing of the blog at 5 in the morning local time. 

I will be moving into my new apartment around noon time and I am really looking forward to that and pretty much just getting settled into the new city I will be calling home in these coming months. That's all for now, I will upload some pics of the new place once I get situated.
