Up early again for a city tour with a local guide. We took a bus up the hill to Prague castle. Some amazing views, and we also saw the changing of the guards. Apparently their hideous blue uniforms were created by a "good", famous designer. We went into the huge cathedral where a few people were chastised for taking photos without buying a permit. This seems to be a common theme in Europe- you have to pay to take photos inside buildings or attractions. Afterwards, we went on a group walking tour before we were dropped back in town. Jeff, Alicia, Lindsay, Howie and myself found a place to eat, creatively called Café Café. Some yummy schnitzel was had, as well Jeff and I shared a boozy Tiramisu. Afterwards, the "Jew Crew" as they named themselves headed back to check out some Jewish sights. I somehow led them to their desired destination by memory from the earlier walking tour, and Alicia and I spent some time shopping. After a while, we were wiped out and just chilled on a bench in the square, watching some gypsies getting loud and rowdy.

Finally, it was time to head back towards the bus. We made the trek, and got to the hotel where we were to meet. We had to use the washroom really badly, so we went in to find it. Well, in our desperateness, we could not find the ladies, so upon inspection, found the mens washroom empty and went inside to use it. Well, while we were washing our hands, in walks a gentleman. (This was a fairly fancy hotel- where Micheal Jackson rented out like every room or something one time). He told us there actually WAS a ladies washroom right down the hall- we pretty much ran outta there. (But he was nice about it!) We saw a few other people from our tour with the same idea and gave them a heads up. Lindsay also came in and let us know they were at a patio bar chilling while waiting. Eventually we caught the bus back, and freshened up for optional activity #1- a Czech dinner.

The dinner was pretty yummy, but the night dragged on forever. Some Czechs put on a dance and music performance. By the end, we couldn't wait to get out of there. We found some more people and headed to a different club a few doors down from the one we were at the night before. We started outside with a few drinks where I had my first absynth shot ever. We couldn't figure out what to do with the sugar so I just ate a packet to follow the shot. Disgusting. Then we went inside and danced the night away. Another late, good night.
