Near and Far with The Friday Flyer: Student returns from Czech Republic


Canyon Laker Lauren Thatcher paused for a picture in front of a giant Christmas tree at the Prague Christmas Market in the Czech Republic last month. She is a student at the University of Michigan and studied abroad in Prague this past semester.

While there, she traveled to Cesky Krimia, Litomerce, Poland, Hungary, Denmark, Vienna, Dresden, Berlin, Rome, Naples, Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast, Florence, Venice, Murano and Burano.

While in Rome, Lauren was able to meet her great-uncle’s cousin and enjoy an

authentic Italian dinner in their home. She will be graduating in May from the University of Michigan.
