Today we started the day off with a trip to the Prague Castle to visit the cathedral. While waiting in line, we witnessed the seven different architect styles found here in Prague. We really enjoyed the gothic designs with gargoyles hanging all over the walls. Brook brought us straight to the cathedral stairs...all 285 of them. It was quite a hike up the dark, spiral staircase, even for us athletes. Once we finally reached the top, we had an amazing view of the entire city. After the trip up top, we looked around the inside of the cathedral, which had beautiful stained glass windows all over. My favorite part about the cathedral was how the light hit the windows and shinned in J Next, we witnessed the famous changing of the guards at the castle. They change the guards every hour and all the tourists gather around to watch. I didn't really understand the point of watching, but seeing the guards perform their routine was rather interesting. So after all that commotion, we had free time to go off and explore Prague on our own. I went off with Kia & Devon on a mission to find a nice place for lunch. Sadly, we didn't really succeed. I only wanted my meal, and Kia wanted a side order, which apparently was a big deal to the waitress since they were "so busy" that day. So we pretty much got kicked out and moseyed on to our good old reliable Mc D's to enjoy my somewhat American McChicken and fries. With a full stomach, we did our shopping for gifts for family and friends, and hit the Internet café. After five hours of free time, we met up for dinner back at the restaurant in our hotel. Later that night, we all got dressed up to hit up the local Disco club (a popular four-story dance club). We had a lot of fun dancing to old school tunes, and making our assistant coach, Erin, trainer Jen, and Brook dance to songs like Uptown Girl and Jitterbug. Some of us took the tram back early, while a few others stayed for another half hour. Once we got back to the hotel, Kia, Devon, and Brett discovered that their money was missing from their hotel room. Then the word spread and everyone checked their things. Three of our rooms were broken into, and whoever broke in took some of our cell phones, American & Czech money, digital cameras and iPods. We were all really upset and violated, especially since we had all locked our doors and lost so much stuff. Sadly, a fun night ended with the hotel workers and police taking reports for us until about 2:30am. So, our lesson for the tenth day in Europe is: When in Prague...don't only beware of pick-pocketers...don't leave valuables in your hotel room.
