Guten Tag!
Had a wonderful time in Praha, explored Old Town, the Jewish Quarter, the Prague Castle, and wherever we were the first day we got lost...also did a tour of the catacombs, apparently there is a whole city that was thriving before the "new" old town was built, they just decided to raise the city from floods and whatnot, and they had no where else to put the dirt from digging the moat, so why not fill the city in and start over.  It was pretty amazing.  The tour guide made fun of us while standing in a room that was built 300 years before our country even existed to them.  The city was also full of morbid legends, chopping off heads for display on the Charles Bridge for rising up against the king, blinding the clockmaker so he couldn't make another somewhere else, all in all friendly and wonderful people. 
Took a beautiful train ride from Prague to Dresden along the river, and immediately found a bratwurst, in a mustard shop that had obama mustard called "Yes We Can!"  It's our first full day here, so we're off to explore the city before we head to Berlin tomorrow.  AufWiedersehen!

Obama mustard...hmm. There is nothing like a German Brat w/ mustard. Did you ever get hold of Rob for his sister's address in Germany? It sounds like you are having a great time, and seeing some interesting history.

"Obama Mustard" sounds a lot better than "Bush Ketchup", or "Clinton Mayo".
