Last night was craaazy!  Those Australians and Canadians and Brits make Americans look prude.  I came back to pass out, and my dear roommates just had too much fun making fun of me. 

So the whole rugby team and the kiwis left early this morning- sad!  I decided to spend the day by myself.  The great thing about traveling alone though is that you can isolate yourself whenever you want.  If you have not traveled alone, you might find this strange ("But aren't you always alone??").  In actuality, it's very easy to find and befriend people with whom you can go on day trips, have dinner and party.  Most backpackers, including me, are approachable, outgoing and adventurous.  It's a very non-committal relationship, so I never feel like you are stuck with someone.  Then of course, I can bask in solitude to my soul's contentment.  It's a great arrangement- the best, if you ask me.  So I did make my way up to the castle, across Charles' Bridge, into several churches and gardens, and up to a breathtaking view of Prague.  Yes!  There was so much to see and admire around the castle area.  I read a book called Bad Timing that Alice, the Welsh girl from Budapest, kindly passed on to me.  It's a British chick lit about 4 people who get into a love entanglement.  Then I took the sidestreets around, did some shopping... life is good!  Now I am back in the hostel.  Having checked out, I am kind of stuck in the lounge, but that's cool! 

Prague is the penultimate city of my 11-week journey, and also the first city that I will for sure want to revisit.  Other places were captivating and inspiring, and I really enjoyed my time there.  However, when it comes to spending more time to explore further than the famous cultural sites, Prague is the place.  Maybe it is just in my comfort zone since it is a western city with a lot of English-speaking people.   Either way, I had a fantastic time here, not learning a SINGLE Czech word (thank you is dick-wee or something? And the currency is corona?).  I am taking the night bus to Berlin!  Yay!
