so last time you visited, which was hopefully yesterday ;), we ventured out to the old town square in prague. today we sneak through an alley and a small street and head to the havelske trziste market and then back to the hotel for a cool trolley ride.
quickly back to the old town square:
this monument was erected to remember jan hus. he was burnt at the stake in 1415 for being a heretic. he spoke out against the roman catholic church and their practices. the hussite wars began after his killing, these wars were protests against the roman catholic church. the monument shows jan looking toward the church of our lady before tyn. this church was the hussites main church from 1419 to 1621.
next image...cool manhole cover
last image...see anything strangely american?
the havelske trziste market...i didn't get too many photos here. i was too busy looking at everything and then it started raining a bit. argh!
the hotel we stayed in had two levels. the main level just off the street and then the more family area up the hill. how do you get up the hill? a hot red trolley naturally! the first image is looking down the trolley path at the lower part of the hotel and part of the city. the second photo is just a scenery shot from the trolley.
then our cutie patooties. r. before her teeth had a mass exodus! i think she lost 3 or 4 teeth during our european adventure. i'm surprised she was able to eat! and k. looking as innocent as ever. i'm sure she'd just pinched her sister for no reason. ;)
up next...the czech metro bullet escalators! these things were fast and steep. you had to ride them to get to the metro and they literally ejected you off at the bottom. you had to have your game on or you were getting tossed off for sure. :)
see you tomorrow....
