My old sneakers. I left them on the streets of Prague, hoping someone will extend their life. They are still very comfortable!
For my blog about my stay in Prague please look on the blog Entry from January 12th!

 I arrived in Prague early in the morning , with almost no sleep after chatting with some American guys on the train. One of the guys where so drunk that we did all kinds of pranks on him , like making him eat muffins that had been on the floor , and puting muffins in his chest pocket. We smashed his chest (and making a total mess of his muffin) to wake him up in Prague. A more serious guy engaged in a little more serious discussion about politics and stuff. We where supposed to change Email adresses, but everone was just so tired that we forgot all about it.

I was drop-dead tired and decided to take the train to Plzen.
The Shoes i bought from a Chinese Street Salesman in Prague. Quality has be top notch then!
I had some time to kill so i went to Florenc bus station checking if the bus where cheaper and it was, but the trains are much more comfortable and somestimes worth the extra money. I also headed out to the platforms and found people selling fake clothing. There where some Chinese people selling fake clothes on the street and I looked at the prices and decided they where acceptable.. I bought two pair of shoes , and two jeans. Completely stuffing my backpack!

I sat there in new shiny shoes and looked down at my old extremely worn-out shoes with big remorse. I did not have space to take them into my backpack to bring them home ,and if i did they would never get used.. But these shoes have been in 41 different countries and was bought on WalMart in Texas City a few days before my birthday in 2005.. Those shoes have seen more than a normal pair of sneakers normally do and they have transported me around on four big trips..
