last day

Posted by mountainmelody On 2/04/2009 12:24:00 AM
I'm spending one more day in Prague before heading out for other adventures. Our colloquium ended yesterday. It included topics from "communities of pain and a responsive God in India" to "theological education among Chinese diaspora communities in eastern Europe."

Here are a few interesting things I've noticed during my time here:
  • The "American pizza" at a nearby restaurant includes toppings such as peas and cream cheese.
  • People here sometimes leave the windows open for "fresh air" even when the temperature is below freezing.
  • The walls at the school are so thin that I was woken up by the guy next door talking on the phone.
  • The dining hall's quesadillas consisted of not only cheese, chicken, and peppers, but also green beans.
  • When I open a web page like Google here, it comes up in Czech.
  • The Lord's Supper (Eucharist) is held in high regard here. I've participated in it several times, including one meaningful experience at a professor's home.
  • The dining hall here serves lots of starchy cafeteria foods, but not much dessert. I may have to go out and buy some cookies!

    Funny -- my brother's family just arrived in Birmingham from Prague! They're stateside for a couple of weeks for their son's baptism. I am seeing my nephew for the very first time (other than pictures from afar) tomorrow night! I'm also going to show my sister-in-law your blog -- I think she'll love it.
