After miles and miles of driving by farmland (of corn, wheat, and plowed fields with toiled manure,) on a straight shot, two lane highway, which was loaded with cars, going slower than molasses on a very hot day: We arrived in Prague.
Prague... where every facade is like a wedding cake of delicious, beautiful, design. Each facade is striking masterpiece. Since I have a thing for buildings you can imagine how s-l-o-w-l-y I have been walking along the streets. Lets just say that a caterpillar next to me is doing the Indie 500.
When we arrived I pulled out French Husband's camera and filmed. I did not know where to focus as it was all good, and my eyes were darting everywhere all at once. I declared there are more towers, domes, steeples in Prague than in all of Europe combined. You might think I am exaggerating, but I think not. (I am having trouble downloading the videos, darn it!)
In the last two photos I took of the same church tower, the first one says 6:13, that is more or less when we arrived.
We found our hotel, (The Castle Steps 63 euro B&B for two) then rode around the center of Prague for the next two and a half hours, with eyes popping out of our heads!
Blue green domes, statues on every flat surface, arches, columns, ornate design, murals, architectural beauty, history unfolding constantly before one's eyes... I don't know if I will ever sleep.
We rode over 200 miles, from Admont Austria to Prague, we stopped three times, and it took us about six hours. I drank a coke a cola light, and it did not have any effect over my sleepiness... that straight shot, two lane, slow paced, corn field after wheat field, highway was as soft as a lullaby. We rarely saw a town. Just miles and miles of farm land. At one pointed I felt like Dorothy walking the Yellow Brick Road.... doubting that Prague (Oz) was ever going to arrive at the end of that highway.
We will be in Prague for a few days.
