So, I am so tired I am *this* close to not writing tonight. But I made a goal and I’m going to meet it, one way or another. I don’t have the energy to write about anything substantial, so instead I will tell you a little about Zelenec.

Zelenec is a small village outside Prague, and I’ve been teaching out there once a week for about five weeks now. If I took the metro all the way to the end, and then caught a bus, it’d be an hour long commute. Fortunately though, I am able to catch the train instead and it only takes about 20 minutes to arrive.

I go to the home of two young boys – brothers, age 8 and 11- whom I teach for an hour each. I don’t know much about Zelenec, but as one of my friends from the TEFL course also happens to teach out there at the same time (though she teaches for an after-school program at the school), we enjoy exploring the small town one bit at time.

They say a photo is worth a thousand words, so I’ll let those do the rest of the talking for me.

At the train station in Prague…
The station in Zelenec
The view from my student’s house is quite different from mine in Prague!
The nearby school seems like a happy enough place!
Quite possibly the only restaurant in town
Just loitering after class, with my new friend I named Karlos
Train to Prague arriving
Goodbye Zelenec – until next week!
