snow, snow, snow, snow, snow! (white christmas style, duuuh)
it's so very snowy and so very beautiful here in the prague :) carrie and i have estimated that we are approximately at eight inches of snow as of today. it is supposed to be around a meter and a half by tuesday! it has just been snowing like crazy nonstop since thursday night! it is so very beautiful, but it makes it hard to get around!
the czeskis do not plow their sidewalks or streets so much, as they just let it pile up and walk on top of the inches and inches of snow. it's quite an uneven territory and a bit of a struggle at times. carrie and adam and i did quite a bit of walking around the city on saturday and we used our snow leg muscles and let me tell you, we could feel it today!
last night we went out to meet up with some friends at a czech bar that was about twenty minutes (walking) away. i got all dressed up (you know, loads of czech people to impress...BAHAH) with a dress and some tights and my favorite (and my mom's favorite, and samantha's favorite) brown heeled boots. i think you know where this is going... heels on eight inches of packed snow on a slippery side walk. well lets just say my friends lovingly made the comparison that i looked like a baby giraffe just learning how to walk. long wobbly legs to say the least.
so i now have the affectionate nickname of baby giraffe :) but hey, i've been called worse.
love love love from a wintery wonderland!
