and then off to prague we went!
we were pretty darn styled as we connected with a few extended czech relatives who put us up for a few days and showed us around. their hospitality was boundless, and we had a blast mixing it up with all of them.
and let it be know that the bojon is now big in the czech republic.
prague is a great city to explore: tons of character, lots of sights to see, easy to navigate, and plenty of history to absorb. we criscossed the city checking out the castle, the charles bridge, and the numerous churches, gardens, and open air markets.
and the pubs. many, many solid drinking establishments. pilsner urquell dominates the scene, and we sampled our fair share.
we spent one glorious afternoon just kicking it at Old Town Square, mixing it with other travelers and enjoying various performers who populated the plaza.
the square itself is a grand collection of gothic buildings that have been restored over the years with various architectural styles from the Renaissance and Barogue periods. the crown jewell is the Town Hall tower that draws a huge crowd on the hour to watch the chiming of its intricate astronomical clock.
lady bojon was duly impressed, and she began plotting a triumphant return with a posse of her own before we had even left the city walls...
