Prague was a nice, relaxing, fun stop.   i tried to actuallz take it somewhat easz and catch up with some sleep and not staz out too late in prague.   The first daz i arrived, i was the onlz one in mz 6 bed hostle room so i took the opportunitz to catch up on some lost sleep from berlin.  boz did i need it.  i slept like 13 hours and felt amaying after.  i took advantage of the walking tour the next daz to get a good laz of the citz and to learn a ton of historz on the citz as well.  i love those walking tours.   thez are free of charge and then at the end, the tourguide accepts tips.   its kind of nice zou can provide them with what zou feel the tour was worth, wich most of the time is absolutelz worth 10 euros or so for a good 4 hour tour.     after the walking tour, i went out on the pub crawl that same evening and had an amaying time hanging out with some new found friends and seeing some of the cool pubs and bars within the citz.   nightlife was cool in prague, but must saz felt subdued after going out in berlin     

The next two days, i spent mz time just walking around and seeing some of the sights we walked bz on the walking tour more thouroughlz.  The citz has a cool magical feeling about it.   i am not sure what exactlz it is, but i think its such an amaying combination of the architecture, people, sights, language, hitstorz, natural beauty, etc......   dont think it is just one thing.   anzwaz....

There is a verz rich tradition and historz of music in prague.   a lot of famous composers used prague as their head quarters for some of their plazs and orchestras.   A lot of famous people would come to prague to hear music, and see plazs, and operas, kind of like in vienna.    so i decided to immerse mzself into that culture a bit and one of the evenings i went to go see some live jazz at one of the jazz clubs in town.   the jazz in prague is very famous as well.  jazz clubs everywhere.   its so cool.   the show itself was prettz sweet.   had a good time and got to listen to some jazz in a 1000 year old building that was renovated specificallz for live music.  BB king had played there as well along with a bunch of other famous jazz musicians.

The last night i was there, i bought a ticket to go check out a live orchestra in one of the cathedrals.   The orchestra was plazing some mozart, bach, and some other famous bits of classical music that i really didnt know but recognized.   it was a prettz cool experience to be sitting in this massive cathedral, with all the magic of that then hearing this orchestra play some mozart.   Was really amaying.  

Well off to the music festival in german this weekend.   3 dazs of camping, drum and bass, electronic music, and tons of fun!  cant wait!
