Bohemian Rhapsody

Is this the real life
Is this just fantasy
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see...

Bohemia. Today the three of us, Nathan, Kristen and I all headed off to the amazing city of Prague. Before I got there I had read quite a bit about the city. It's beautiful they say, you have to go see it they say, it's well preserved they say, it's cheap they say. It was all true. Except for the cheap part, but the essential characteristics of beauty and historical significance were true. However, Prague is no longer off the beaten path for tourists as there were large crowds and the accompanying prices to match (though still cheaper than Western Europe). Still it is a place I am absolutely glad to have visited.

Starting the day off we headed off to the center of the city from our hotel right outside the main part of the city. Our first stop was a beautiful garden with fantastic landscaping and peacocks. Yes there were a lot of peacocks including a white one who was trying to continually fight a pigeon.

After we headed up to the Prague Castle and checked out one of the main sites of the city. We saw the changing of the guards, got a great view of the city and then headed back down. Once finished we headed off to lunch and thanks to Nathan had a great meal of dumplings, goulash and the like.

We then headed out to wander around the city and take in the local architecture. We checked out the Charles Bridge and much more. After a long day of running around we headed back here to our hotel for some much needed rest.

Overall, I like Prague quite a bit. I can tell because at this point in our trip we have seen many beautiful cities with amazing architecture, however Prague was still impressive. The next indicator is that I typically take 150-200 pictures per day and today I was up to about 500, so in a way today was 100%+ more interesting than a typical day! Tomorrow we have more exploring on the docket after we send Nathan on his way, so we'll see what the day brings then! (Plus I'm going to get a Golem)
