Mushroomz in the Bathroomz

Prague update:

I literally just hand-washed all my clothes in my kitchen sink.  Desperate times call for desperate measures.

I feel as if I have stepped back in time.  And boy am I glad to live in the 21st century!  It is BEYOND hard to reserve a washer here.  After 3 tries and getting yelled at by the receptionist in Czech, I gave up and took matters into my own hands.  There are no dryers here anyway, so we hang dry everything.  I feel like I'm in colonial times.  Not fun at all.

On a more gross note, we have 2 mushrooms growing in our bathroom!  Our bathrooms were made crooked so every time someone showers, the bathroom floods.  And there are no rags to dry it and no dryers to dry our floor mat.  So basically our bathroom constant has at least 1 inch of water covering the floor at all times..... and that, my friends, started our mushroom problem.  Our friend who works here, Arnie (bless his heart) is doing his best to help us, and he even offered doing some construction on our bathroom himself to help us out.  Great guy.  Until then, we shower as little as possible, but as much as necessary.  Aunt Leanne, Mom, Lillian, and Daniel- you sure you guys still want to stay here with us? It's a glamorous lifestyle to say the least.

On a positive note, I am feeling MUCH better!  I got a 100% on my Czech midterm (miraculously), and our AMAZING teacher Darina invited the whole class (only 8 of us) to her house to cook an authentic Czech  meal!  This is a huge rarity in the Czech culture, but she told us she loves us and that's a big deal!   Tonight we are heading to our first football (soccer) game!  Tomorrow a bunch of us are going hiking through Bohemian Paradise, which is a few hours away from here.  Fingers crossed for good weather and an end to all this rain!  Until next time, Nashledanou (goodbye)!
