Prague Castle at night
I arrived safely, however my baggage only made it to Vienna.  Luckily for me, there are tons of flights between Vienna and Prague, so my stuff made it here by the time I returned from my night out.  By the time I found my hostel and got settled in, it was late afternoon so I relaxed w/ some fine Czech beer and planned my night on the town.  I walked around new and old town and managed to get some good night pics of Charles Bridge and the Prague Castle.  I had dinner at Novometski Pivovar and it was good.  The best thing about that place is their beer (they are a microbrewery).  After that, I just went bar hopping and managed to catch a little of the NCAA tournament, so that made me happy.  One note on traveling around this city.  It's easy to get around the city on foot or using public transportation.  Whatever you do, DON'T EVER TAKE A TAXI IN PRAGUE!  Not even from the airport.  For roughly $10 US, you can get a three day pass for all public transportation (buses, trams, subways).  It costs roughly $20 for a five minute cab ride.  Enough said.
