Prague was a wonderful trip for me. It is always nice to visit places where you have friends. Jason really made the trip unique. I did all the touristy things during the day, but jay really showed me local stuff or things that the average tourist wouldn't do at night. We ate at local places, hung out with his friends, and took day trips to the Czech country side. It's an extremely touristy place but worth seeing. The Charles Bridge early morning is definitely worth getting up for (or staying up!). Also I was surprised at the quality of the zoo. It's not something I normally do while traveling but I had the time and it ended up being worth it...of course everything is super cheap!! I also did the botanical gardens and the green house which I loved. It's a surprisingly huge city so taking as much time as I did was well worth it. One day Jay and I were walking and we ended up near all the ambassador houses....wow are they nice! The other thing I really enjoyed was all the beautiful views of the city that are to be had. The hills are worth the climb! Also the public transport couldn't be better. Between the trams, the buses, and the metro you don't have to walk anywhere unless you want to. Of course I walked a lot but the tram was my favorite. You can see the city and get places quick. The best though was the AC in the metro!!! AC is unheard of in Europe so finding it is always nice, especially since all of Europe was having a heat wave while I was in Praha. The metros are definitely an experience to be had. The escalators go down forever and when the train is coming the pressure change pushes cold air on you. It's like a nice cool breeze caressing you...oh it felt so good on those hot days.
