After seeing the castles in Fussen, we decided to move on to someplace a little bit off the beaten track.  We’d heard a lot about how much fun Prague was, so we pointed the van northeast and started out.  It took about 8 hours of driving to get there, and we were actually disappointed that they wouldn’t stamp our passports at the border.

Prague was an interesting city…lots of beautiful architecture, and friendly people.  We spent a couple of days wandering around the streets, and partying in the bars.  We found one bar in particular that we fell in love with…lots of backpackers on tour, situated in a dark concrete basement with cool statues on the walls.  It was here that we tried absinthe for the first time.  It did the job of any alcohol, but I couldn’t detect any other properties.  I’m assuming that it wasn’t the real thing, or if it was that we were too tipsy to notice.
