Journal Entry:
Spent most of the day on the train. Got to Prague after dark, called the hostel for directions and went on my way. The hike to the Hostel was pretty scarry: you take the tram out to the middle of nowhere, get off at a dark deserted spot and head down an impossibly dark dirt road. I felt like I was in the middle of a bad early 80's spy movie. The hostel itself is great, friendly, clean, and cheap. Spent the night talking and playing cards with other travelers. Got to hear the Australians (most of the other people in the hostel) sing the Australian national anthem at midnight in honor of Australia Day.
