In 2005 Jason and I flew to Prague for Christmas. Cousin Steve is married to Katka, who's from Prague. They spend Christmas there on odd-numbered years, and since we were in Italy we flew up to see Prague and spend some time with Steve, Katka, and Katka's awesome family.
Steve showed us all over Prague and beyond. We took the train to a town where they make crystal to get it at rock-bottom prices; we saw a church decorated with thousands of bones; we visited Katka's grandma in a gorgous old town with an amazing Christmas market. We ate amazing food and drank amazing (and cheap) beer. Prague is one of my favorite cities in the world.
I'll tell you more about it but for now everyone's ready and we're headed off to the Ladies' Tea at Aunt Dee's. Hooray! Happy Day After Christmas, everyone!
