All of the Odyssey girls in front of the John Lennon Wall in Prague! We had such a fun time taking pictures with the street art!
We spent the last few days in Prague and it was amazing! We walked across the Charles Bridge and saw the Tyn Church. It was awesome to see all yet major sights of Prague, especially the Prague Castle!
We arrived to a lovely day in the south of the Czech Republic. The town looks like a Disney world park with a castle, rivers, and medieval looking houses. The mind walk nearly broke us but winning was rewarding and helped us really explore the city.
Annie, Ashlyn, Tom and I made a stop at the Terror Museum in Budapest, definitely one of the most moving aspects of the city. When first walking in, none of us had any previous knowledge of Hungarian political history, especially involving their own Nazi movement with the Arrow Cross Party and the Communist party that emerged after WWII. With the incredible design of the museum and the mountains of knowledge we received through pamphlets, displays, and audio and video pieces, by the end of the exhibit we were moved and enlightened. The Terror Museum was constructed in 2002 to not glorify what these parties did, but to remember the horror, torture and death they both ensued on Hungarian citizens and the progress the country has made since then.
During our trip to Budapest we came across one of the most symbolic bridges-the Chain Bridge. Work began on the bridge in 1839, and the bridge was the first permanent stone bridge connecting Pest and Buda. It is only the second permanent crossing on the whole length of the Danube River. It was a beautiful sight to see at nighttime!
