An almost terrible (but turned out terrifying) day trip

2004-10-16 | Kutna Hora, Czech Republic

So.. I decided I wanted to take a day trip to Kutna Hora because I have had a lot of people tell me its cool. After some rude interactions with the unfriendly and unhelpful staff of the train stations, I was on my way. When I got there I had no information whatsoever and I was forced to suck info off the tourists that were there. I clinged onto some Ozzies with a Rough Guide and followed them to a huge gothic cathedral. I thought that this was the cathedral everyone raved about (this church made of real human bones). But come to find out it wasn't. At this point I separated from everyone because I grabbed some food. So I got

I was out standing guard one night in Czech Republic and I was listening to the BBC and they came over with "The War had ended."รƒโ€šร‚? In that town of Pilson, the VIP's decided that they wanted to entertain the troops and they rounded up a real circus with lions and tigers and horses. I got on a detail with another GI with our jeep and we were supposed to go round up supplies for this circus.

We went to slaughterhouses for meat for the tigers and lions and also got into one warehouse that was all full of chocolates; even a breadhouse. We had authority to confiscate if they didnรƒฦ’ร‚ยขรƒยข?ร‚ยฌรƒยข?ร‚ยขt give up their supplies. The army would give them vouchers to later redeem what we used for the troops, but most probably never did anything with it.

Bob Hope came in there one time and put his show on. He was real good in concert and I sat down not to far from the stage and there must have been about 10000 GI's in that town square.

The last two or three days of the war I was

Living Good; Like King Wenceslas

2004-10-15 | Prague, Czech Republic

I arrived at the train station and at the currency exchange (for Czech Kronas) the guy at the counter was trying to sell me into this shady hostel he had in his flat. Instead of that I went out in the city and relied on my powers of randomness (thanks Susan for making me realize that) to find me accommodation. I basically went into relative direction of where my guidebook said there was hostels.


I stopped at a few hostels that were overpriced and gross looking and this is where I made the decision to go high class.....YES.... a hotel. After getting no sleep the other night because of naked hostel sex, I decided I want my own room.



I found a room for 65 Euros and it RULED. I settled in, took a nice shower, cleaned my underwear in the sink and watched some crappy Czech TV. I also mapped out my next destination.... Switzerland. Once I was done organizing things I began to wander the city.



The first thing I
