On Saturday we spent a few hours walking around Frankfurt, which is another beautiful city. That night we went to a Karneval party, since the weekend I was there was the offical holiday weekend. This time we dressed up as devils. First we went over to her cousins house to play a few games and then went to the party. The party was fun, but it made me feel old because at 16 you can drink so I actually felt like one of the older people their. (the 16 olds though had to leave at midnight).

Tuesday morning I left Germany and headed to Prague. I took at train from Frankfurt to Nurnberg and from their I took at bus to Prague. In Nurnberg I was able to exchange currency because even though the Czech Republic is in the European Union, they do not use the euro but instead they have the Czech crown. Traveling took up almost the whole day and then I meet my friend Emily (from Whitewater) in Prague. We stayed in hostel in a 4 person room; the first two nights we had the room to ourselves, the next night we had one other guy, then the next night was two guys, then the last night was just one guy again. Luckily the guys were nice so it wasn't too weird. Our hostel was in a great location, was really clean and included breakfast.

Sunday was our last day. We walked down Paris street where all the expensive shops are and did some window shopping. We also did a small tour of a chocolate shop and saw a demo and taste testing of pralines. We were able to take a shuttle directly to the airport; we flew into Amsterdam and then took a train back to Arnhem.
It was a really nice trip. We had enough time to see everything but were not rushed. It was really hard to get concentrate on school that next day!
