WOW. Things are constantly changing. We heard to go by the river Spree last night in Berlin from any people but all found were a bunch of dark alley ways. HAHA so we figured it best to just walk back to the hostel. We got up at 7am to get a train to Prague at 9am.  And of course we missed it because we couldn't find our way because we couldn't speak german or read the subway signs...you kinda just go with it here. So we missed the train to prague, caught another 2 hours later and finally arrived here......and its amazing. The streets are all cobblestone...the beer is 10 cents (which should make for a funny night) and the people are so helpful.

I've been walking down the street singing the slovak song that coup taught katie and I when we were little....no one knows it. HA But they do understand me when I say "how are you" in slovak. Reminds me of Grandma Betty and Coup :) 

We went and finally ate a real meal tonight. It was amazing. Potatoes and chicken and pilsner beer...so good. But they didn't take credit cards and we had to wonder through the streets to find an ATM while Jaime sat inside the place. Also you can bring dogs in restaurants and they are never on leashes...very strange. The subway is hard to figure out but many people speak english and we're getting by.

I'm pretty sure my shoes are worn through, we smell, and look terrible, but we have smiles across our faces. Tomorrow we will see all the historic prague sights then its off to Munich for Oktoberfest!!!

Ha! Awesome. Good thing you weren't eating strawberries or things could have really gotten out of hand.

Seems like ya'll are having a blast.

Oh, and don't waste time watching that old clock in the square in Prague...it's not that cool.

Be sure to take down emails from everyone you meet because I need places to stay all over the world.

Congrats on passing, by the way. I want to know your exact score...I bet we got within 50 points of each other.
