The first part of today was spent walking around historic Prague and then heading back to Deutschland to check out Dachau.
So, after waking up, we walked down the street in Prague to check out the Charles Bridge and see what was on the other side. By the way...it was absolutely awesome to visit a former soviet state!
The three of them were arguing over the map whilst I was taking a picture of the chick on the wall behind them.
Czech by birth, southern by the grace of God!!!!!! (Be sure to read the writing on the door.) Seriously...we were very surprised to find this vehicle parked next to a million-year-old church in historic Prague.
No idea what this is. We took so many pictures of historic doors on random buildings it's hard to keep them all straight.
Some place where random people left locks and such chained to this grate. I'll have to look this up later. (Gotta love the handcuffs.)
I like this for one reason. It's covered in Jesus stuff but has the all-seeing eye adorned at the very top.
The US embassy. Of the three embassies we passed, this was the only one with heavy security and bomb units screening every car that went by.
After we left Prague, we took a drive down to see the Dachau concentration camp. As much as many would disagree with me, I think that this is the kind of thing that everyone should see at least once in their life. From this point on, I won't be doing any more joking in this post. BE WARNED....THESE ARE PICTURES OF A WWII CONCENTRATION CAMP.
"Work makes you free". I've always wanted to stand before this gate in person. It's a testament to human cruelty.
I'd always heard that the difference between the Nazies and every other nation was that the Nazies actually DOCUMENTED all of their war crimes. This is a ledger of new "guests".
Each inmate had to wear a patch that clearly depicted what class of societal "undesirable" they fit in to.

After we left the camp, and much to my surprise, we headed to the Edelweiss resort. All I can say was that staying at a resort in the German Alps......NICE!!!!
The adventure continues tomorrow. :)
