Journal Entry:
Went into town armed with a plan. My initial impression of Prague was wrong. Prague is a charming, beautiful, and friendly city. Found the old section of town and spent hours wandering arount the cobble stoned streets. Explored the area immeadiately to either side of the Charles bridge, and bought an original print (an etching) of the bridge that I liked (now if I can keep it in good condition until I get a chance to send it home). After it got to cold to wander around anymore I headed back to the hostel and begged for dinner (I had neglected to make diner reservations with the staff). The evening was spent alcohol free playing cards.
