We arrived in Prague around 2pm and started a walking tour of the city, which is just beautiful. We started at the castle, then made our way across the river on a bridge with lively street performers into the old town. Dinner was at the hotel, and ended up being the worst of the trip so far. It was a buffet with stale bread and mystery meat. Ick. From here we met up in the lobby at 8pm to make our way to the Beer Factory. This place was amazing. You sit at a table with four taps and pour your own beers. You pay when you leave based on how much you consumed. It was a blast and pretty nice not having to wait for drinks. The next morning was free time, so we got to sleep in for the first time! I got up around 10 and headed out to walk the city, since I opted out of doing the river cruise. The day turned sunny and helped with the cold temperature. The highlight was John Lennon's wall, which is covered in graffiti dedicated to the musician. Dinner was on our own tonight, after which we had a pub crawl. The first hour and a half was free shots of absinthe and vodka, and free beer. We also got a t-shirt. Everyone did this optional and it turned out to be a really fun night. The tour guide led us to two other bars and we got a free shot on entry. The walk home was beautiful, with fluffy snow flakes falling. Morning came too quick, and we were soon on our way to Berlin.
