We drove to Prague this morning and while I had considered the Czech Republic depressed yestered, we found capitalism alive and well in the city of Prague. As we drove into the city nearly every building was brand new and bore the label of a major company (HP, DELL, Sony, GE…). Of course the city is not entirely new and we where able to tour the old town square, the castle, and the cathedrial of St. Vitus. All of which were built many years ago, the cathedrial beginning the 15th Century!
In the Czech they use the Koruna for currancy and it’s value startled the students. Rather than ten Euros they were now paying well over 100 for lunch. Of course it did made Will look impressive with his 1000 Koruna bill! And when we found a grocery store near the hotel selling liter bottles of coke for only 28 Korunas there was a made rush to buy!
