Hi! I'm in Prague. My poor scooter will take another week to fix, and I don't want to miss the chance to visit my friend Victoria in Prague, so I went ahead and did that. Lviv, Ukraine to Zilina, Slovakia to Prague, Czech Republic in just 20 hours.
European trains are different than Indian trains, and I was trying to articulate how, but then I realized it is mostly just this: they are ten times as expensive and half as full.
You can still get tea. (And it's still pronounced "chai".) That is ten times as expensive and half as sugary.
All is well! I feel like an international superhero, hopping countries every three days. It's a tough life, right?
