The rest of Prague...well at least the rest as far as I could write about...

Ok, I'll try and wrap up the rest of Prague in this post.  But it's going to be hard!

We woke up on Sunday ready to explore.  The first thing we did was go across town and visit Kafka's grave:

Of course, the first thing I noticed was this awesome flower cart right next to the cemetary:

So pretty!

But, then we actually went into the cemetary and the grave was so beautiful. Such a lovely memorial for such a disturbed individual.

After leaving the cemetary, we headed over to the other town square that is apparently more of a boulevard.  I don't know.  It's what the tour book said. 

Then we climbed some big staircase into a park at the top of the hill (it had a beer garden, we were willing to climb). 

We got this awesome view of the city from halfway up.

Then we met up with a Jersey City Beer Garden bar tender (we make friends everywhere we go...) that recently moved back to the Czech and he took us around to a local pub (where we watched the finals in hockey and had the most amazing food). 
Our last day in Prague, we went to the Jewish ghetto and visited the Kafka museum (seriously, that man was kind of ridiculous.)  His diary entries were just complaints about waking up and working and other silly things like that.  I don't think we would have been friends if we ever met in real life. 

However, the museum had a funny peeing statue outside it. 

After the museum, we worked our way over to the John Lennon Peace Wall and passed this awesome lock gate thing.  I don't know what it was for, but it was cool.  (Seriously, I'm the worst describer ever).

So, now the wall.  Notice the lovely inspirational quotes.  "I'm a dreamer", "never settle", "fuck bitches".  Wait, what?

The pink writing is the most out of place...

After that, we went to the castle and cathedral.  The castle was pretty, but the cathedral was jaw dropping. 

Then, the toy museum with the perverted statue (or should I say the perverted people that TOUCH the statue?).

At least I got to pretend to be Superman...

And we ended the day with a trip up to the mini Eiffel Tower: 

I love Prague.  I want to go back and actually have time to explore.  We kind of did the whirlwind tour...
