Prague: Where the Beer is Cheaper than the Water

Our second stop on the fall break Europe tour was Prague. Prague is an absolutely beautiful city with really charming architecture. We spent most of our time walking around and enjoying just being there.

We got there at about 6am after a terrible overnight bus. The delirium shows.

They stopped construction on this church in the middle, lost the blueprints, and then began construction again. I guess they forgot to measure the first tower to make sure that they would be the same, because the right one is larger than the left one.

The first time I had seen a cupcake in 2 months. I went for the classic carrot cake.

The Gallery of Art Prague was having a really cool Andy Warhol exhibition. Not pictured is me rearranging the soup cans to use as impromptu tripods and props.

We then attempted to spend a classy night at what we thought was a ballet but turned out to be an interpretive/contemporary dance piece. We left at intermission.
