And we climbed and dropped into Czech Republic. First impression: Did that sign say Czech or Vietnam? ... Each country has its visible minority immigrants, and for Czech it was quite visible from the multitude of border shops selling everything from cigarettes to alcohol to ceramic dolls to 1€ sunglasses, where Robin cashed in to replace his lost pair, all run by Vietnamese families.

On our ride to Prague we stumbled upon the small town of Terezin; a town once secured by flooding the surrounding channels and drawing the bridges. This town was later the place of a Nazi concentration camp.

We rolled into Prague absolutely drenched from the rainstorm we camped to the night before. But we had an very pleasant stay with our own private room at a hostel renowned for its train-spotting, literally.

We celebrated Robin's birthday with some lively Irish lads at an all night (non stop) european club. One of those interesting joints with the underground maze of tunnels leading you to bar within pub within club. The best part of the night was busting the cabbie on the way back for trying to scam us into an unrequested (yet on the meter) tour of the city.
