So I'm pretty proud I was able to get a few of my coworkers to go visit Kutna Hora today.  We got together at the main train station in Prague around 9.30am, and took a train at 10am.  It was only 100 Czech Krown round trip, about 5 euros.

I had brought it up a few days ago, and it was cool to get a few of them motivated to check it out.  It's a small town about an hour away from Prague by train, with beautiful small roads and just a typical Czech town.

Also, it has an "infamous" bone osuary.  It's this small church/chapel location with thousands upon thousands of bones that the monks put together in a variety of arrangements, including a fantastic chandelier, and huge piles of bones.  It was really impressive and quite macabre.

We then walked the other mile or so into town, walked around a bit, and made up to the fantaaaastic cathedral (oh, by the way both entrance fees were 50 Czech Krowns or 30 Czech Crowns for students).  The cathedral was absolutely amazing, with a beautiful front naive and incredible stained windows adorning the cathedral, and beautiful architecture.

We also had an amazing lunch, where I had some great chicken with camembert cheese in the middle.  Good stuff.  Afterwards, we walked a bit quickly to make it to the train stop on time at 17:00.  We were barely able to make it, by about 5 minutes, and then made it back into town.  We then went out for a beer or so and some food in Prague, near the beautiful Charles Bridge, which I finally checked out, and took tons more pictures.

After dinner and drinks I came back home with Madlenka, and here I am, super pooped out and trying to catch up with all of my pictures and videos...

That's about it for now!  I think I'll go walking around town for a bit tomorrow with Casey, one of the girls I've met from the course.
