So, this is my birthday month, and I decided that there was only one way to celebrate it– in Prague, The Czech Republic! Actually, a colleague said she would arrange for a few of us to drive over (Its less than 3 hrs away) because its her favorite city in the world. She booked us a place near the Charles Bridge, a beautiful structure with lots of statues and art vendors alongside it.
Jerri, our leadfoot driver got us there in record time. We may as well say we landed safely into the renowned city because we may as well have flown.
One night we dined at a very cute restaurant where I had a traditional meal. It was tasty, but hard to look at. Let’s just say my duck was quite large.

My friend Tracey ordered this salad, so pretty.
If you like art, you will love Prague.
Prague is a city that dates back some 1300 years, count’em.( In comparison, we Americans can brag on about 200 plus years). Much of the city was done in the Baroque style, very ornate and detailed. The streets are cobblestone and there are street cars/trolleys to get around in.
For some reason there were lots of Thai massage places, featuring minnows to nibble your toes.
We took a tour around the city in a fancy car and saw the royal palace, a Jewish memorial, the theatre, castles, famous art pieces (some are quite explicit), and even stopped at the driver’s relative’s stand for a warm drink. We froze on this drive, but it was certainly worth it.
