I'm writing from Holiday Inn, Bratislavia, the capital of Slovakia (Slovak Republic). Frankly, I thought Slovakia is Serbia. This trip is doing me good.I§m learning.
We were in Prague, Czech Republic yesterday and I was disappointed at first. It is an old, untidy city and a little dirtier than the recent cities I've been to. Then we went to the Old Square where every lane and corner was charming and lovely. But then it started to drizzle, first time since London, and that was inconvenient. We had the best weather last week in Paris. Hub and I took the metro (easy to use) to Charles Bridge at 9:30 pm and when we turned the corner and saw the magical, fairy-tale sight of the castle and buildings on the hill across the bridge and river, I was totally blown away. It was the most beautiful sight so far. Paris by night is not even half as beautiful! (hooray, I figured out how to use the punctuation marks on this keyboard). I was upset with myself for the 10,000th time for not bringing Yi°ˇs SLR when I couldn't get a good photo of the Prague Castle area from the bridge. Anyone who has a good photo of the castle and bridge by night pls send to me..
We leave for Hungary tomorrow. Have to go, I've been hoarding this computer. Hot off the camera, photos taken an hour ago in Bratislavia:
The next photo was taken in Prague (known as Praha and pronounced pra ha by the locals), after crossing the Charles Bridge into the area around the Prague Castle. The area is old, very quaint and lovely.
p.s. does anyone know of a clean, inexpensive, conveniently%located hotel in Rome? We break away from the tour in Rome and need to get our own hotel.
