Bright and early for our first tour day. After a crappy breakfast, we loaded up the bus and headed onwards. We stopped for lunch in the town of Dresden. This city was completely bombed out in the second World War. The cool thing about it is that they reused some bricks from destroyed buildings to rebuild- you can see the blackened bricks in some of the photos. After wandering indecisively, a group of us finally settled on an Italian restaurant for lunch. I had some sort of pasta dish (shockingly!). Alicia didn't like hers so I gladly let her pick at mine as it was a huge plate. We headed back, got a little bit lost down an alley which was closed for construction, but made it back right on time to continue on our journey. Sometime on the ride, we had to decide which optional extras we wanted to partake in. I chose all but the concert in Poland (Chopin?)- I figured one classical concert in Vienna would be more than enough.

We arrived in Prague in the evening. After checking into the hotel, we loaded back into the bus to get dropped off in the city for a walking tour. We saw lots of old buildings and such, as well as the amazing Astronomical clock. I think it accurately shows the day, time, month, and moon cycles. As well, hourly, apostles parade by as the clock chimes. After a few failed attempts to view this, we managed to get a prime seat on a patio and enjoy the show while having a drink. It was actually quite disappointing, but watching the square fill up and empty so quickly was amusing in itself.

The patio also saw the beginning of a few nasty absynth shots. After, we randomly chose a bar to go to, after downing a few beers bought cheap in an alleyway. This club was 5 stories, so we actually spent quite some time looking for our group. We danced the night away and got back to the hotel via cab, late.
