Finally caught up on laundry, drys fast, as we hang it outside on the dryer rack. Today was a visit to the market by the Palladium Square. Another giant mall and then a market beside it. Lots of local food stands, so we tasted again and ended off with a rolled sweet dough, so needed a beer to finish off. The mall just kind of blends in with the old structures, keeping that special ancient look.

Then we went to dinner at cafe Victoria with Nadia, Iman, Megan and Paul. The food and wine here is exquisite. Then we walked around Old Town square and got to ...
... tourists and vendors selling overpriced food and souvenirs. But if you were there at 3 am, it was nice and quiet. LOL. I only did it twice.
My favorite place though, was definitely Vysehrad. It's a castle just outside of the city. There's something you should know about castles in Prague.
