This is the third day of our trip, but it still feels difficult to tell if we’ve been here for just a few hours or almost a month. Time has been moving very strangely, but we’ve loved every minute of it. Everything feels comfortable yet new and exciting at the same time.
After making the incredible walk through the town square and across the Charles Bridge to school for the second day, we explored the city some more, venturing into the less tourist-populated areas and discovering new things around every corner. We picked a promising looking restaurant and were led deep into the basement, only to come out into a lower-level outdoor garden to eat our food. Every meal is a new adventure, including trying to navigate the customs of splitting checks and choosing between “sparkling or still” water.
After falling asleep back at the hostel for no more than five minutes, we went back to the square to climb the clock tower that houses the Prague Astronomical Clock. The view from the top was incredible, and as we looked across the entire city, we realized how little of the town we have actually seen.
Finishing the night off with crepes and meat dishes from the street vendors in the square, I think we realized how much we’ll miss the city in just a week. One thing at a time.
