Thursday was a very unusual day in that I did not have any studies scheduled.  I spent the day catching up on trivial things like laundry as well as doing some final prep work for the weekend in the Czech Highlands.  In some ways having a day like this troubles me, but on the other hand it lets me recharge my battery just a bit and hopefully helps me be more productive for one of the most important opportunities I have during my trip.  (It also makes my backpack smell better as I travel.)
