Today was a lot more exciting except I started the day out sick.
The first part of our day we went to Kunta Hora(?) We went to a Bone Church... yes a bone church.
At first when we got there our tour guild was walking us around a cemetary, not something I find quite exciting. We then are told we must pay to take pictures of inside the church which we all though was kinda odd but whatever. So we get inside and the church is literally made our of Human bones... there was pyramids of skulls, a huge light fixture made from jaw bones... it was something you would see out of a horror movie. We were told that there were 40,000 people in that church.
Finally leaving the bone church we went to another church, scratch the bones. It was GIGANTIC, unfortunately there was no heat in this church cause it was quite old.
We then took a tour around Kunta Hora, the people here don't stop for you when you walk in the middle of the road(not something you should reall do anyways) and theres no speed limit.
After our morning of touring we went to the Czech Sweden game. The place had more Canadian fans there then Czech fans, and I counted 4 Swedish Fans. If anyone was able to catch the game or at least watches highlights, you know how badly the Czechs played. About half of the people in our tour left to go drink beer and watch the game on television just right outside the stands. You weren't allowed beer or food in the seating area. After the game there was a gang of us looking for food, couldn't find a place. I met 2 Slovakian players and the group of us walked past the Czech Team after their game.
Then it was time for Team Canada to play, amazing game. Since the arena only had over 1000 people there.. again pretty much all Canadians a coupld of us moved closer to the ice I was about 2 rows behind the Team Canada bench which was pretty exciting.
It's New Years here now, Czechs are insane when it comes to fire works they have been going off since 10 pm. Tomorrow is our "recovery day" which a lot of people will need we are trying to find a place that will air the Winter Classic game tomorrow, we are going to try Jaromir Jagrs bar.
Then on January 2nd we get to go to the Canada House!, we get to meet the players parents hang out and drink beer. Since my tour is with Hockey Canada we are the only ones who get to go there which is pretty awesome. Then it's Canada vs Finland! Anyways this is pretty long I will be surprised if anyone actually read through it haha. happy New Year everyone and GO CANADA GO!!!
