3 hours for wine glasses

 

Hello everybody,

Sorry about being M.A.L. (missing and lazy).  Well not completely lazy, L and I visited Prague yesterday (2/8/10).  A quick day trip to look for wine glasses and a walk around the city.

Yup, all the way to Prague for wine glasses.  An acquaintance of ours broke several of his wine glasses, which he purchased in Prague, and wanted to replace them with the same make and model.  Thus, began our trip to find his wine glasses.  Oh yeah he’s also 6’4” and walks at a pace of a slow jogger.  And having been in good ol’ P’town recently packing on the weight, we were in for quite a work out.  It was like sightseeing for the speed walking enthusiast…it was quite fun, plus it was 23 degrees F. 

Here are some pictures.

Leaving Prague…I like the ladies in the mink.

 

After some chow, sightseeing and hunting for the wine glasses we headed back to the village.  We’re definitely going back for a longer visit.  

love,

M&L

Yup, it's quite the place. Did you get to see the "Dancing House" by Vlado Milunic? I tried to take a picture of it but ran out of camera juice.

I loved my short weekend side trip to Prague when I went to Germany for adidas. It's a beautiful city, you should definitely go back!
