Flag of Czech Republic  , Bohemia,
Friday, September 20, 2013

The starting point for my adventures was Prague in the Czech Republic.  I had heard a lot of good things about Prague so I was anxious to go and see the sights.

Everyone is right.  Prague is certainly a beautiful city and is very walkable.  But Prague has certainly made it onto the tourist maps because the place is just overrun with tourists.  I guess I would count as one them, wouldn't I?

St. Charles Bridge and the old town square are wonderfully lively places at night.  Early morning was the best time to wander the cobblestone streets to take pictures.

I did manage to somehow get sick on Day 2.  But I was a trooper and was up early each day.  You should have seen me at the pharmacy making sounds to tell the pharmacist my symptoms.  I hope I got the right medicines...

I loved the food in the Czech Republic...maybe it's because I liked that the portions were large?  :

Hi Imamura-san. Late March and early April is a good time of year to visit that part of Europe. Gene-chan is growing up so fast! That will be a special moment next year!

Look forward to following your adventure...hope you are feeling better. Otrivin, it's the best for congestion -- too bad they don't sell it in the states anymore. Will be watching for your next leg of the trip. Be safe and enjoy!

Hi Debbie, yes, the Otrivin worked wonders on my stuffy nose. Too bad it could get rid of my cough.

Hi Thuy
Thanks! I had a great time in Prague. I now know why it's become THE place to visit.

Hi Flo,
The pig knuckle was yummy! I had pig knuckle twice, though, not on consecutive days! Don't worry about the magnet thing...I got you covered!

I think I'm safer eating from street food vendors than eating from shops. I don't seem to have issues eating from street food vendors.
