A Quick Note From Prague

Hey, all!

Things are going well in Europe. I’ve not yet suffienciently gotten on Randy’s nerves yet…and he’s avoided getting on mine. The weather in London was pure crap. The first day was nice, but it rained Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Ugh.

We did manage to get to loads of places, though: Royal Observatory, Victoria and Albert Musuem, (the recently charred) Cutty Sark, London Tower, Tower Bridge, the Gherkin, Harrod’s (unbelievable), National Portrait Gallery, Trafalgar Square, Soho, London City, Piccadilly Circus, South Kensington…and more (I’m sure I’m forgetting).

We arrived in Prague yesterday via EasyJet (I don’t understand people’s complaints about this budget airline. The plane was new, the crew was friendly, the ride was efficient. Anyway, Prague is AMAZING. It’s unbelievably beautiful, our apartment/hotel is in the heart of everything and the weather is far better than London (albeit with clouds). But over the next three days the weather is to approve. So far we’ve only done Old Town Square (our backyard) and the Charles Bridge. We’ve still got the National Museum, Prague Castle and dozens of other places to see.

Alas, the hotel’s free computer doesn’t have a USB port so I am unable post photos until I get to Paris this weekend. So please be patient, my dear poodles, and I will overwhelm you soon. Well, as long as I can figure out this damn Czech keyboard. Things are in weird places…there are extra letters and some keys have 4 functions (for example one single button does four different things, but I can’t figure out how to shift (or control) to get the other functions to appear.

So, that will be my reason for any typos today. It’s the keyboard, it’s not me.

    So glad you love Prague – I thought you would! It’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and more preserved than most. I’ve heard good things about Easyjet also, so it sounds like everything is going great. Face it, you had the traditional London weather – so that was appropriate!

    Hi Karl,

    I just started reading your blog. I love it. Well, except for the parts about your iPod. I just can’t relate.

    I’m so glad you and Randy are enjoying London and Prague. Have a safe and enjoyable adventure as you continue travelling!

    Prague is supposed to be fabulous. I’m so happy all y’all are enjoying yourselves. I’d take the London weather; but then… I’m predisposed to liking it there. 😉

    Hope the rest of your trip is wonderful, Snarling. Mwah!
