Where I stayed

Prague is lots of fun! We arrived on Friday night and have had lots and lots of beer! We've walked around quite a bit and have been eating in delicious restaurants.  We wandered across Charles Bridge and looked at Prague Castle at night.  We'll go back in the daytime to explore the castle.

I used an ATM where a scammer had placed a piece of hard brown plastic with a sticky back in front of the cash slot.  The plastic looked like a part of the machine, so it was intended that you would assume the ATM was broken, walk away, and then the scammer (who was watching) would stop by and collect your money that was stuck to the plastic.  We could see a corner of paper in the slot, so we pried it open and took the piece off, with my money attached.  A few minutes later we passed the ATM again, and the scammer had already placed a new plastic sticky device on the machine!  (The money was obviously not intended to stay with us, as Patrick had the same 1000 CZK note stolen by a pickpocketer later that night!)
