The instructor let us out early today... in effort to allow us ample time to get to Prague to first see the all powerful "US AMBASSADOR' ... so I caught a train at 11:16am.. got there aproximately 30 seconds before the train pulled away... my speed walking paid off.. as it often does.  I, of course, had no intention of going to see this 'important guy' at 130.. so instead i ventured around prague.   It was much more crowded than I remembered it-- i suppose going in the summer vs. april will do that.   Not alot new in prague.. same touristy place i remember.   I ended up wandering around.. again.. like usual.. Ended up on Charles Bridge and somehow found myself at the top of the castle. Was still a great view as I remembered from before. 

This time i also had the chance to catch the Tourture Museum.. that was more interesting than expected.  Oh i have pictures to upload from there... Including the super scary....
The big signs on all the doors in the museum told the saavy consumer to avoid picture taking.  However... as I am NOT a  Saavy consumer.. i took pictures anyway..  I know what your thinking.. a rebel without a cause.. and what can i say..  I LIKE TO LIVE ON THE EDGE!

After the long day of tooling around prague again.. i went to have a nice goulash dinner at a random dinner.  I then proceeded to try to find the place where the drinking was to commence.  Lucky for me I found it.  Was a nice little bar that our instructor.. Dr.Stransky owned so the beer/wine/etc. was free from 6 to 8.   Can't argue with free.  Stayed there forawhile before i realized i had to find a way to the train station. 
Perhaps it was the several Pivo's i consumed.. but I managed to get on a variety of trams that were going to train stations that didnt leave to Plzen!  Hah.. and to top it off..  I had in my infinite wisdom CIRCLED the train station that i needed to go to on my little map of the metro..  Ahh yes..  seems fitting.
