First things first, I needed a bite to eat. I hate to say that I stopped my a McCafe but it was close by and easy to order from. Most people working here speak English but sometimes it is very difficult to understand through the thick accent.
The first part of town I journeyed to was Stare Mesto which is Old Town. There is a famous horse statue there that serves as the meeting place and despite not meeting anyone there today, I wanted to check it out for myself.
Walking further into Old Town, I couldn't help but notice the architecture. Everywhere I would look would be some hidden gem hidden into the architecture. It's just not something you see in American architecture since it isn't built to last many hundreds of years. Lining the streets here are many shops, but much different than I had seen on my last two stops. Instead of the many cafes and Italian leather shops it is Czech glass, garnet jewelry and beer pubs. I was surprised a bit by how inexpensive things are here. It really must help them to not be on the Euro. A healthy pint of beer near where I am staying is less that $2 and is really good beer.
Of course when in Prague, you must see some of the nightlife. There were four of us in the B&B last night that decided to go to a place called Palac Ackropolis. It was very busy but it had a great mix of music. In one room was a dj, and in another were several instruments playing to a dj. After a few pints and cocktails later we ventured to another place called Red Eye. This is a great name for a Prague bar because you can smoke in them and all are extremely smokey. Around 3 am we couldn't take the smoke anymore and decided to call it a night. I guess I forgot how bad the smoke was in the US since it is nearly banned indoors.
