Well, we're back in Germany - Munich this time; to wait for our overnight train to Verona, and then on to Milan. The train leaves at 11:40 tonight (!) and gets in at 5:07 tomorrow morning (!). I'm starting to really hate european trains... We were out last night in Prague, in the most hilarious bar I think I have ever been to. It was called 'Coyote', and it certainly lived up to its name. On the hour, every hour, (you can tell we were there too long) a bell was rung, and all the women working there had to get up on the bar and perform some year 9 routine (Lucy's words) that could have been in the gym and dance! It was really quite awful, but our international group of going out buddies made the night - we had two german jokers, two finnish...people, a crazy guy from chile, a slightly less crazy guy from spain, two chatty Irish girls and a mafioso-style Turk. It was really surreal. But anyway, about the day: the Castle and its surrounding touristy things kept us walking and touristing for 7 hours straight, stopping only for the most incredible lunch ever - bacon dumplings, a leg of pork, red cabbage and onions. yum. Czech cuisine is as if the food has been dragged from the field and cooked about 5 mins before you eat it, it's delish. And the beer - I really don't think I'll be able to drink English beer with any sort of conscience after the frothy tankard (0.5 l) of Czech ambrosia I washed it down with - and it cost me 60p. Prague is just amazing. The river and the architecture in general is beautiful, and the city has a clean, fresh feel to it, even though the Stare Mesto was founded a really really long time ago (can't remember the date, but it's in the 13th century.) Others things of note; it was independence day yesterday (yay...) so the town seemed to be overrun with Americans, and we heard a mysterious brass band which seemed to keep getting closer and further away, but always out of sight. Oh, another thing about 'Coyote'; the DJ was a ledge - he let us have microphones, so we were bawling out 80s ballads like there was no tomorrow, and indeed after one guys rendition of 'Take On Me', it seemed like there wasn't going to be.
