Happy New Year!

Oy vey - I'm terrible at keeping up...
I hope everyone is having a wonderful new year so far! I know that ours is filled with snow. You can tell I'm thrilled. haha. Actually this was me walking in the stuff today. It was still falling, or should I say blowing...right into my face. There was about 6-8 inches on the ground after I finally got home this evening.
As winter has definitely set in, English Club came to a close for the holidays but now we are back in the swing of things. In the mean while, I took advantage of a few free days to see some friends in Prague, CZ. It was a blast! The city truly is beautiful, but more than anything it was good to see friends. It helps having something to look forward to when you can't be with family for Christmas. I was back in Warsaw for the new year and spent it with friends.
There are a lot of great ideas and goals in mind for the new year and my last 8 months or so in Warsaw. (crazy how time flies) Anyway, here's just some photos from recent times. :) Enjoy!
At New Years here, everyone shoots off fireworks.
We didn't go into the center to see the city shoot some off because we were all too exhausted and didn't feel like being cold.
So we just watched out Susan's 3rd floor balcony and watched locals shoot them off.
Sadly this year wasn't as spectacular as last, but it was still enjoyable!
Now Prague :)
A view of the city from a hill across the river. We had to take a car up it and then walked back down.
The astronomical clock in the Old Town. The characters move on each hour and its got sections that tell you which month/ season, day (by names) and of course the hour and minutes.
The castle and Charles Bridge at night. So beautiful!

More adventures to come, but until then, I'm staying busy busy with English Club, a teammate leaving to go back to the states, a volunteer coming in to help, media stuff, people stuff, and just stuff!
Adios :)
