I just want to start off by saying how sad the news of the London bombings was. We were still at the house in Austria when we heard, and we sat in front of the TV for hours as news came through. Jenny’s family is in London, and it turned out that her brother was on the tube going through each of the stations that were bombed just 20 minutes before the fact. Thankfully, he was fine, and I talked to Jim Bollocks and his family is okay, so that was good to hear. I hope everyone reading this who may know people in the area heard similar good news.

We’ve left Prague now and are back in Germany, and back to the euro. I for one am glad, because the Czech money felt way too much like Monopoly money for my taste. I just couldn’t get used to the idea of spending 300 of any currency in one pop. It felt really nice though to be able to afford things! Not that I could buy anything though since I had no money at all. Good news though–I called my bank yesterday and sorted everything out and my card works again! I just went to an ATM and it was so nice to feel those notes in my hands. I have to now give them all away to everyone I’ve been borrowing from though, so my happiness will be short-lived.
