Flag of Czech Republic  , Bohemia,
Monday, May 24, 2010

We arrived yesterday in Prague via train around 1:30 PM local time.  We huffed it to the train station in Berlin after checking out and made the 8:30 AM train.  We were both starving when we arrived to Prague, so we just grabbed a pizza as soon as we got here.  Then, we stumbled around town for awhile and eventually found the hostel.

This hostel has us in a 7 bedroom dorm.  We had great roommates last night, but all departed today for a new location. 

Yesterday, we walked around the Prague castle that looks down on the city for about 2 hours.  It is the largest castle in Europe.  We had some incredible views and pictures.  On the walk back, we stopped for a few cheap beers and had dinner at a Czech restaurant.  Food was great, service was terrible.

Last night, Czech Republic beat Russia to win the Ice Hockey World Cup.  Who knew?  They projected the game onto a big screen in the famous square in the city.  It was complete mayhem after the game....broken glass, chanting crazed fans into the wee hours of the morning.  Jonas has some excellent pictures of this that he will surely post.  Never seen anything like it in the states.

Today, we took the free walking tour of Prague and learned a lot.  It was the same company we used in Berlin.  Afterward, Jonas took a tour of the castle and I went to the hockey parade in Old Town square.  I also got us some symphony tickets for tonight!  Hell yeah!

Weather has been great here...we have worn shorts both days.  Unfortunately, we ran into a little bit of rain today. 

Jonas requested a pull up bar and ab machine here at the hostel; however, they were unable to accommodate his request.  Stay tuned for pictures from Prague.

All this stuff sounds amazing guys. A slice of pizza and no ab workouts available in the same 10-day period. Do you think you will make it Jonas?

How did the celebration compare to the VT-LSU "riots" in downtown Blacksburg? haha

DO NOT, i repeat, DO NOT LEAVE PRAGUE UNTIL YOU HAVE RENTED A ROWBOAT AND GONE OUT ON THE RIVER FOR A NIGHT ROW.
