Wendy in Prague ...

Wendy writes:
I arrived in Prague from Bulgaria at noon yesterday.  I’m in a hostel in the thick of the touristy part of town, getting my bearings, figuring out where I’ll be staying for the next month or so. I walked for hours today, up the hill to the Prague Castle and monastery, then down into the Old Town where I found a textile/fashion exhibit at the Museum of Decorative Arts that rivals similar shows I’ve seen at the Met in NY.  

Food here is amazing and cheap. After a feast last night of bean/sausage soup, fresh tomato salad and roasted new potatoes, tonight I’m cooking at the hostel. I got a delicious loaf of stout rye bread, 1/2 dozen eggs, and yogurt, all for the US equivalent of $2.42!

Next up:   Wendy travels a few hours south of Prague to Cesky Krumlow where she will 

settle in for a month and concentrate on writing articles about her exciting journey.
