Our next stop on our trip was Prague. Before leaving Budapest we stopped at Momento park to look at the monstrous communist leader statues.  It was freezing cold out so in order to make the park more bearable as we walked around we decided to take turns posing with them.  These are a few of the results....

Michelle was SOO EXCITED when we drove through Slovakia on our way to Prague. 

Shelley also expressed her excitement!
Afterwards we headed to Prague arriving in the early evening. After check-in we headed out for some traditional czech food. I'm not really sure what that necessarily consists of but we had these potato dumpling things (not really dumplings but bread.) and hit up a few bars before heading home to bed

Prague Castle
The next day we decided to take a guided tour of the city. this was both a good and bad idea. Good because we got to see so much of the city. Bad because the weather was so cold no one could really feel their legs, arms, or face after. It was a 6 hour tour including a boat ride.

Just like in London!

Excited to be there!
The next day was full of more walking around and the Communist Museum (started by an American businessman!) and looking at the Christmas markets.

Highlight of the trip? The beer. Surprised? i was. I'm not a beer drinker at all normally but it being so cheap i decided to give it a try. Czech makes a lot of good beer. Every one that we tried was good! The Czechs are the largest consumers of beer in the world. This makes it so they don't have to export their beer because all of the beer is consumed domestically.

We left prague and headed off to Berlin!
