The Last Leg

I am now in Prague, where I arrived yesterday afternoon from Budapest. I took a magnificent train here, and then immediately headed out to see the sights. I am so limited on time here that I don’t want to spend it on the computer, so I’m going to ask for my reader’s permission to update you when I return to LA this weekend. πŸ™‚

What I will say now is that these two cities are magnificent and each one very unique. I was walking around Budapest near the Danube River on Tuesday night thinking that it was one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen by dark, and then I came to Prague. I stepped on to the Charles Bridge, and it is the first time in a long while that I remember being totally blown away. The view, lit by a full moon, was simply extraordinary. I caught myself saying, “Wow” and I even teared up a bit because it was so overwhelming in its history and beauty. The Charles Bridge has been there since the 14th century, and the view of the palace, the Gothic church and the city at night is one that is unmatched by even Paris. One definitely has the sense of walking in a medieval city here in Prague. The people are very friendly (some of them too friendly … more on that later), and the beer costs $1 (“I didn’t inhale.”). I met a couple of guys from Los Angeles while I was at dinner and hung out with them for the night. And that was just the first night … now I’m off to the Castle, to the many churches and hopefully one last Prague meal and my final “water with gas”.

See you back on the other side of the pond.
