Update from Europe

So now Erik and I are in Prague for the next two days. Its a great city, but for some reason full of mystery..Maybe its the crazy style of buildings that dont exist in the US....We arrived via train from Vienna two days ago. We took a overnight train. The train was really nice. Erik and I had our own little suite, complete with beds and a bathroom. I even took a shower on the train! But even with the bed, I only slept like a hour or so cause the ride was full of bumps and sounds. We arrived to Prague at 6 in the morning on Sunday. So everything was closed. We arrived to the hostel but they said that we coulnt check in until 1PM! So we pretty much had to wonder the city for 5 hours and see the sights on little sleep! That night we met my old roomie from Chile (he is from Prague) and he showed us around for the night. The next day we took a train to his place in the burbs and then he drove us around the countryside (we saw a couple neat castles)...

Our brief time in Vienna was cool as well. We only stayed one night though. Very quick trip. But one of the reasons that we booked the hostel was because they had musical instruments! They had a piano and a couple guitars. So of course we played! It was was great, we met a lot of talented people and soon had a jam session going on. I even busted out the harmonica for a jam on Roadhouse Blues with some people from Ireland! We had about 20 people watching us play. Great times....

Well, two more nights here and then Erik and I spit ways. He goes home and I go to the UK for about 2 more weeks.....
