I’ve spent our entire time in Prague waiting for the Easter Markets to open, so we made a beeline to the Old Town Square yesterday morning.
We had a glorious spring day filled with the sound of traditional Czech music, the smell of delicious food, and the sight of colourful ribbons blowing against a perfect blue sky.
By now we were all tired, so we went home for a rest before heading out again to watch a marionette production of Don Giovanni. Luckily, they had a 5:30 showing and had reduced the show to 70 minutes (and really, for the kids, 30 minutes would have been enough), and everyone enjoyed an hour of culture.
And then, in a moment of daring (or maybe stupidity), we decided 6:45 wasn’t too late to eat dinner at a restaurant with the kids. The restaurant we went to looks like your normal cafe from the street, but we ended up getting a table in their basement brewery, which was interesting enough to keep everyone well behaved for awhile. Ben and I tried traditional Czech dishes, and even Sophie got in on the action with a sausage.
