My opinion of Prague has changed completely. The past three days have been awesome, and Prague is just as cool as any other city we've been to. The second day in Prague, we did a walking tour of the Old Towne. We saw a lot of amazing buildings, from towers to churches and even a really famous astronomical clock. One of the churches was dedicated to St. Nicholas way bacck in the day, which is where St. Nick (Santa) comes from. We also saw the famous St. Charles Bridge, which was really neat. The central area of Prague is so pretty, everything is extremely old and is very picturesque. They also have some really big malls, we went to one that was five stories that was really neat. The next day, we went to the largest castle in Europe, Prague Castle. The castle was really neat, especially the huge cathedral. The gothic architecture was really different from anything we've seen, the cathedral even had gargoyles staring down on us. We went to another mall after the castle for lunch, and just hung out the rest of the day. That night, we did a pub crawl that was really fun. I met people from Cambridge University in England, Brazil, Russia, and even Indiana. It's really neat to meet tourists from other parts of the world and realize that you're all doing the same type stuff. Today, we went Trezin Concentration Camp, which was a moving experience. The prison held not only Jews, but also lots of political prisioners and people trying to fight the Nazis. It also held at one time the assasian of Franz Ferdinand, who basically started World War 1. It felt really wierd to be somewhere where so many people had died and gone through so much. Tonight, we went to the La Traviata opera in the Prague Opera House. We were in our own boxes, and the whole thing was a lot of fun. The performance was so different from any Broadway show or symphony I've ever seen, and it was much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. Tomorrow we drive to Strausburg, but only for the night. The bus drivers here can only drive a certain number of hours a day according to their union, so we have to stop there because Brugge/Brussels is too far for a day. The next two days will probably be pretty boring since they'll be spent in the bus, but hopefully I can watch US vs. Spain in the Confederations Cup tomorrow night. I hope everybody is doing well, I know Mom and Trent are in flight right now to Paris, and then Dad, Wendy, and Jade in only a few days. It'll be really good to see you guys and I know you'll love Europe as much as I have.
