What is Home?

Yesterday, I got a massage at a salon in Prague and I was asked to fill out some paperwork beforehand. Where do I live? What’s my address? I’ve generally taken these seemingly mundane questions for granted.


As soon as we entered the arrivals hall, we were greeted by Jenna and Aline, our Remote Year staff people, along with Jacqueline, my soon-to-be roommate. After snapping a few pictures with us and the Remote Year banner, we piled into a van and headed toward our neighborhood. Prague is broken up into numbered sections, and we’ll be living in Prague 2, which is pretty central and loaded with bars and restaurants.
