Dresden continued to be very nice. Unfortunately, "the world cup of climbing is this weekend" is apparently german for "the world cup of climbing was last weekend". next time, i guess. anyway, yesterday i left for prague.
on the train i met 2 very cool americans working in prague for a few months as part of a master's program. we talked a good bit on the train, ate dinner in prague, and made plans for future rendezvous. they were incredibly helpful, going above and beyond to make my first night in prague a great one.
the dinner was at a very non-touristy traditional czech place. un. be. lievable. the place had an amazing atmosphere. it was like a scene out of a movie. very, very loud and jovial czech dominated the room. czech songs were sung as drunken grandmothers swayed standing next to their seat, spilling beer on loved ones. at some point, a tuba player and accordian player started circling the room. i didnt have my camera (mistake!) but i will hopefully get the pictures from brian and juan, my helpful insiders.
went back to the hostel, slept, and now it is time to see what prague has to see!
