Yesterday, while Jack was on the lookout for graffiti I was busy observing the sights and learning more about the city of Prague. After arriving at our new (Cheap+nice) hostel we befriended a felllow traveller Hamish from New Zealand. The three of us trapized off to take in the sights, sounds and smells of the city indulging in our free tour. It started in the town square, where our guide (George from Missouri) enthusiastically regaled us with stories of Nazi occupation, communist Czechoslovakia, Jan Palach, Franz Kaftka, Mozart and many more. There is some amazing architecture in Prague dating from the Art Noveau period in the New City (new as in twentieth century) and the old city, which I believe is remanents from medieval times (OOOLLLDDDD).

Our FREE Tour of Prague
After the tour was over, we spotted these giant brass babies. I managed to get a few good shots of us tickling their feet, kissing their bums (hee hee below) and Jack and Hamish riding them like horses. Then we walked along the river and watched the swans. We are off today to do some more indepth investigation... the old Jewish quarter of the city (with the oldest Jewish cemetary in all of Europe), the Kaftka museum, museum of communism andf perhaps a tour of the castle.
Anyhow, thanks for all the comments! Will post soooonnnnnn! -lalalalalalaDelilah!
P.s To the Hmac Mothership- How is Steven doing????
