Prague's been a really cool place. Last night I went pub hopping with two Finnish roommates. These guys were probably the nicest people I've met so far on my trip. One was a medical student who is graduating in 6 months and the other guy has an IT degree. They were really interesting and told me alot about Finland's history and its way of life. It sounds like a really cool place to visit. But they did tell me Finland has a very high suicide and unemployment rate. Hmmm. They actually invited me to visit and said I could stay at their place if I wanted. They kept telling me that I helped them change their view of Americans because I didn't fit the typical stereotype. Honestly, I felt like these guys were like some of my buddies back home. We talked about everything and anything. Its crazy how you can relate with people that are from a place thousands of miles away. It was definitely good times.

Today I went to the Prague food festival and old Jewish quarter. The food festival was smaller than I expected but the food was really good. The Jewish quarter was a little creepy. I walked through an old Jewish cemetery that was built back in the 1400s. The grave stones are just completely stacked by each other. Check out the pics.

Tonight I'm taking it easy. My old body can't go drinking too late again. I have to wake up early and catch a train at 8am to Berlin. I can't believe this trip is almost over. Hopefully, I'm inspiring alot of you to travel and chase that ultimate adventure. Life is way too short and anything can happen and everything can change in a flash. I'm definitely living my dream right now. I'll see you guys in Berlin.
