Ahh Prague...

What can i say but Ahhh Prague....

Caught a train that took around 4 hours to get there. Even on the train all i saw was houses in hills next to rivers. Its was amazing. The window was too dirty and those pictures never come out good with reflection, so i couldnt take a pic. Stayed at a place called Miss Sophies. A bit of a girlie hostel, but it was nice. It was actually in the new town of Prague, which isnt new its only like 500 years old compared to the old town, which is much older. Prague, it terms of old streets and buildings is massive. You could walk around for days and not see it all, and get lost every day. As i did for 2 days, completley lost, walking around in cirlces, but every time not caring because, i was like, "thats nice" and took a photo.

If you asked me what i did in my two days in Prague. I cant really remember. I just walked around going wow and taking photos. I must of walked about 15 hours the entire time i was there. I did eat though. And not Maccas all the time. I did go to what is said to be the best pizza place in prague. It was quite good. And i did eat other things too, like i bought sandwiches and stuff. But stuff costs so much and doesnt fill me up. So in the end i always end up going to maccas, just to fill that final gap. Just a cheeseburger or 2. And maybe a sunday or a mcflurry so i dont go to bed with the taste of cheeseburger.

I have discovered some things quite bizzare though. One to quote Pulp Fiction the "Mc Royal!!" prounced -MC Roy aalll- The chick serving me had to correct me. What is this european invention. Its just a cheeseburger with a thicker patty and a bit of onion. Tsk tsk. But I found in Prague and im sure its around other places something that i have fallen in love with. The Kit Kat Mcflurry!!!. We dont have that at home. My god its addictive. As soon as im done im going to go hit one.

My more new bites and itchyness got to the point in Prague that i had 100s more bites and i had to call mum and just bitch and complain about the state of myself. Something i said id never do. I had and unfortuanatley still have 100's of bites on my neck, arms, shoulders, every toe, every finger, hands, bottom of my feet even!! Thankfully nothing on the most important place!! It was a time to bring in the big guns. It was a mum job. Explainging to my mum, that it was the end of the world. My mum, being the mum that she is called places in oz and got professioniol assistance. I had washed my clotes, bought industrial fly spray that said only spray for 10 seconds then leave the room for 20 minutes. I sprayed half a can of this into my bag for 5 minutes the closed my bag, i sprayed the stuff on my skin even. Nothing stopped this. My mum concluded if it wasnt bed bugs like i thought, it must be scabies. Its disgusting!! Some mites on me. It rhymes with rabies. Have just bought some stuff and am on treatment, and it is looking ok at the moment. Still itchy!! And have washed my clothes and disfencted my bag with toilet cleaner from a slovakian maid who thought i was a freak for stealing her toilet disenfecting and a sponge and then locking myself away in the room. Try explaining with a sponge in hand that you going to clean "something" in your room.

I also bought a little bottle of tea tree oil in a Prague chemist. Strangeley enough called "Australian Tea Tree Oil". Its 25ml and cost me 40 bucks!!! GRrrr In oz its costs 5 bucks for like a litre. The guy in the chemist was a rude prick too.

Anyway, i want to forget about this bite things, im living it! Back in Prague all there is, is tourists. They dominate Prague. Its the only thing that sucks about Prague is the tourists. They bring the prices up and scare away the locals. Your not unique so the locals dont want to talk to you.

"Every time you go away... you take a piece of me with you" its on right now as i type sorry. Pause for singing....

Absyinth comes from the Czech Republic!, i recalled as i was walking around and saw a Absyinth shop. And then realised every store has absyinth in it. I couldnt buy any even though its so cheap here compared to home, and theres such a variety of different ones. Original, pink, That communist guy cheo even has his own. I cant even drink it right now beacause of what im on.

Beacause of all this doctor and medication cuffle, i didnt realise i cleaned out my atm card. So i was down to nothing for a day or so until i transferred some over. Another reason i couldnt buy absyinth!.

The only other thing i did in Prague, was on a rainy night, see Miami Vice at the movies. Im in a little bit of a chill out mode at the moment. If i was at home, i would be staying at home and playing playstation and watching DVD's. Instead im relaxing, reading books and going to the movies.

Finally whats the deal in Europe and a tiny bit of asia with paying for toilets. I walk into a toilet and in macdonalds and use the urinal and theres a man standing there waiting for me to pay him half a dollar. Im against it. If things keep going this way moneywise im just going to have to start peeing in the coke bottles. Its a win/win solution to my coke addiction. Its like its meant to be done.
