PRAGUE <3

CZECH REPUBLIC | Monday, 30 August 2010 | Views [392] | Comments [1]

Prague is such a cool city! There is SO much history here. The architecture ranges all over the place because of all the occupancy of different tribes and different dictating countries. And get this, there are a few vegan/vegetarian places here. I have been having coffee in the morning at this fair trade coffee shop called Mamacoffee. It smells like my first job at Figueros :)  I have walked all over this city and still have two more days to dig a little deeper! I spoke with a Czech citizen for a while at dinner last night and he says when I speak Czech I have a Russian accent... weird- I know.

I am not diggin my hostel to much. It is called PurPur Crib 15. I chose it because it only costs me 175 koruna or 9 dollars a night to stay here. But it is this super kitschy decoration and atmosphere where the music in the lobby is something you might hear on Z 107.7 (you st. louis folk know what I am talking about). And the kitchen is under construction, so I can't use it. But, there is a bright side to this! I am moving hostels tomorrow! I am moving to a hostel that is right in the Old Town Square. It had great reviews.

Yesterday I went on a free tour and bought some groceries at this organic grocery store. Attached to the grocery store is a veg. restaurant so I went and had some healthy warm soup that only cost $1.50!  Today I went to the coffee shop and explored Prague on the other side of the Vltava River. Starting with the ever famous Charles Bridge. Huge biblical statues line it! Everything from there is a steep uphill walk. I saw the Prague Castle, The Kings Garden, and Strahov Monastery! I would love to post pictures of all this, but I dont have a way so far.

Love you guys

P.S. 2 posts ago during my last night in Budapest I said I was going to call it a night, but when I got off the computer my two hostel mates asked if I want to go to this thermal spa with them. It was open from 10 pm-4 am. Budapest is known for its thermal spas. And this was an authentic one. It even smelt of sulfer! It was so relaxing after walking around so much!

Hope, you sexy Russian vixen! haha! And you would think a place with as awesome of a name as "PurPur Crib 15" (meow) would be pretty BA, but guess not. I am sorry to hear that, hopefully the new one is comfy-cozy for you. I love you, your trip sounds amazing, I am jealous, and be safe, kitty cat!
