Ok, so it seems like forever ago that I left Prague! Ross and Katka met me at the Old Town Square about 1:30 and I condensed everything I would need into Katka"s bag and they are taking my bags to Olomouc. So then we grabbed a quick hot dog and stocked up on snacks for the road trip. It was a close call to make it on the bus by 3pm. So the bus driver and his 2 helpers were all from Italy. Now remember the world cup championship game was yesterday, Italy v. France. The bus drivers literally pulled over at a rest stop just so they could watch the game. It is almost a matter of life and death in fact. Anyway, Italy won and they went crazy. It was pretty funny.

So today I wandered aimlessly for awhile, then went found the Piazza Duomo and climbed the bell tower. It was only 414 steps. Haha. Then I took a bus to a hostel and reserved a room for two nights. But they open at 2pm so I went and walked around some more, then checked in at 2 and took a nap till like 4. The room has like 8 beds and 2 guys were from Argentina by coincidence and 2 were from Austria. I spent the rest of the day with the guys from Austria checking the city out and taking tons of photos. I might try to rent a bike tomorrow and buy a ticket to Rome. Whichever is cheaper, bus or train. I am pretty tired now but today was a pretty exciting day.

What an awesome experience! I'm so glad you were able to make it to Italy. We didn't get to go to Florence when we were in Italy, so you'll have to take lots of pics to share with us. You're still in our prayers!!
