It's nearly a month and a half after the fact, and I am finally posting some photos of our trip to Prague, the last leg of our spring break journey. Let's just say that the last month has been wonderfully full, our home here filled with friends and family from the U.S. who spent time and money to be with us. My reading has been nearly non-existent (I'm not a very good multi-tasker) and blogging has fallen by the wayside, but that is just fine with me.
Prague was just as I remembered it from a weekend trip during my study abroad days: charming, refreshingly different from the smaller town I studied in in Slovakia, and so old. Interestingly enough, John and I visited Prague at the same time of year as when I went before, and so we enjoyed the Easter markets in the old town. We would totally recommend Shakespeare and Sons Bookstore, spending an afternoon (or a day) at the beautiful, spacious Prague Zoo, going up in the tower in the Old Town Square that gives you great views of the city, and generally giving yourself time to wander the small streets and passageways. The weather was strange, ranging from cold and snowy (seriously, I did not have the right clothing!) to sunny and warm, but we made do and had a great time. We both came to the consensus that we love Prague and hope to return someday. After you see a few pictures, I think you'll know why!
