Today, we started our day with a nice little pedal boat ride on the Vltava River. It was a nice, peaceful way to see part of the city. After that, we had a nice big lunch at a restaurant overlooking the river. (Cheeseburgers. Yum!) Then, we just kind of walked around for a bit, without much of a plan in mind. Which was nice. Walked along the Charles Bridge again, so I could buy my cool pair of glass earrings that I wanted. There was this awesome little jazz band that was playing on the bridge. It consisted of 6 old guys playing the banjo, tuba, trumpets (2), a saxophone, and (my personal favorite) the washboard! SOOO cool. They were really good.
Meandered our way back to the hotel for a little siesta. Then went back out at about 8:30. Took a trolly up to this really awesome castle to take a look around (supposedly it’s the biggest castle in Europe.) It was super pretty. The architecture is phenomenal here.
Went and ate a typical Czech dinner at a pub. My dad ordered sausages that were made in beer, and my mom and I split sirloin steak with a cream sauce and bread dumplings. Now THERE’S a weight watchers meal….NOT!
Strolled around the Old Town for awhile afterwards. It was fun wearing my Barcelona soccer jersey again today. Lots of people saw my jersey and started cheering! SO cool!
