Tour de Slovakia...

This week Paige, Katka (my friend from Czech) and I went on a little excursion around Slovakia. We left Zilina Tuesday morning and drove east to Presov. There we picked up Ryan, our one intern this summer, and then drove to Kosice. We had four reasons for our trip. The two legitimate reasons were to meet up with a group from Paige's home church who was there doing a work project, and to have a meeting with a local youth pastor. The other two reasons were to have a fun road trip, and for me to see Kosice (which is known as the most beautiful city in Slovakia). Thankfully, ALL objectives were accomplished. Here are some pics from Kosice.

After the night was done, we had to drive BACK to Presov to drop Ryan off, and then us three girls drove another hour or more to Poprad to spend the night. We rolled in right at midnight and crashed. However, the next day we were well rested and able to enjoy the beautiful High Tatra mountains of Slovakia. Yay for nature!

Gosh, Laura, I'm totally envious of all the people you get to spend your time with. My only consolation is that you are moving to BA eventually.

Our phone calls are being timed to perfection. I hear about your stories and moments later a blog appears with pictures to capture these tales. I adored the photos. Tell Ryan and Paige ciao for me.

"Some big bell"??? I thought we discussed this and concluded that it was, indeed, the liberty bell. Fun times.

I'm jealous! Wish I could've been there to join in the festivities!
