Prague

We are now in Prague. Prague has brought us cold weather and many new friends. One was a boy from London named Ashley. He told me I had a boys name and even spelled it the boys way. I was nice and didnt respond back. Today we went to a church where everything was made out of human bones. I was morbidly fascinated with it. I think I am going to post all the pictures I have of it because really when else in your life will you see a cross or chandelier made out of bones. We have really enjoyed being in Prague, but we are all excited to return to the homeland "Germany" tomorrow. I realize that Germany is not my homeland but it feels more like home than anywhere else we have been. Today we met a 68 year old Texan who was traveling by himself and decided to be our tour guide for a while...we loved him. More on him later when I post pictures.

The church sounds interesting but I think I could skip that one. By the way, I believe that there are more girls with the name Ashley than boys :}

You- no smart comments? WOW!

The homeland, it is probably all the time you spent sleeping there last year. Give the homeland a good kiss for me. I will be jealous. I miss it.

A boy may be able to have the same name as you...but, can he have the nickname Ashqua? I think not.

I wish I could spend a lot of time sleeping in Germany this time, but apparently when you are staying in a 50 bed dorm room other people want you to be awake by 6. I was thinking Luisa that maybe I will just start going by Ashqua for the rest of the trip. And I had a rude comment for him about his name being a girls name and that he had very feminine features (which he did!), but I decided not to cause an awkward moment.

Good job on passing on the awkward moment:)

Hello
I’ve been to Prague many times and I never get sick of it. Last time I was there for 15days. I found the city beautiful, like a fairytale land, the towers, the castles and the cathedral gives the city that mystic ambient that I love. A place made of bones? Wow incredible I haven’t been there! I love Czech people they are very nice and friendly and also a literate society, as you can see here in this government document. Besides the small streets I loved the place we slept in I’ll leave you here a very good site about Prague hotels, they are cheap and very pleasant.
The beer in Prague is so cheap and the best ever!
