The thigh bone's connected to the... ceiling, so as to form a chandelier. Yup, it's ossuary day. Very worth the trip to see this particular bone collection. Far more impressively displayed and put together than the Paris catacombs. And then there's the cathedral of St. Barbory. Amazing. Beautiful gothic structure. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Otherwise, today was a travel day. We left Prague in the morning, stopped at Kutna Hora for a couple hours, then made our way to Vienna. We'd initially been thinking of going first to Bratislava for the afternoon, but Kutna Hora took longer than we'd anticipated, so we may hit it between Vienna and Budapest. I think we made the right choice. It was close to 6 by the time we got to our hotel as it was. 

For dinner, Ben found a well-reviewed beer garden near the hotel, so we set out to find it. Turns out, it's in the amusement park that sits next door to us. We had a good dinner and then amused ourselves by ambling about the park and watching the rides, teasing each other about what we'd never go on and reminiscing about amusement-park-days past.
