Just like I mentioned last week my little man wanted to write about his trip to Praha (Prague). He loved it and is so excited to tell you all about it. So here he goes:

Hello to all of my mom’s readers out there in the blogosphere. I’m the little man of the house and I want to show you some of my favorite places that we went to in Praha.
|inside the Palace where the Bohemian kings and royalty met|
|This is Golden Lane (that’s where all the workers lived) in Praha castle and it was my favorite part.|
- 1st day lunch was pork, dumplings, and sauerkraut in a gravy at U Dvou Sester (ONE OF THE BEST MEALS EVER!)
- 2nd day lunch at the Medieval Tavern and had two smoked sausages (BEST SAUSAGES EVER!)
- 3rd day dinner was at Kotleta and I ate duck leg with dumplings in a gravy (BEST DINNER EVER! Ok I loved it all and can’t really make up my mind)
|St. Nicholas is one of the nicest churches in the world in my opinion and my dad agrees.|
|This was on Charles Bridge and we saw an amazing double rainbow. |
Charles Bridge was really nice it is similar to the one in Würzburg but better.
In 1278, Henry, the abbot of the Cistercian monastery in Sedlec, was sent to the Holy Land by King Otakar II of Bohemia. He returned with him a small amount of earth he had removed from Golgotha and sprinkled it over the abbey cemetery. The word of this pious act soon spread and the cemetery in Sedlec became a desirable burial site throughout Central Europe.
After the Black Death (14th century) and the Hussite Wars (15th century) thousands were buried in the cemetery. (there was even a showcase of skulls from the Hussite Wars)
After 1511, the task of exhuming skeletons and stacking their bones in the chapel was given to a half-blind monk of the order.
In 1870, František Rint, a woodcarver, was employed to put the bone heaps into order, yielding a macabre result.
|It was the most scary and also beautiful thing I ever saw!|
We saw so many great things and these were just some of my favorites.
I can’t wait to show this post (and the ones my mom wrote) to my friends in school. I learned so much on my vacation and now I even know how to write a blog post.
I can’t wait for our trip to Europe next year but back to school I am in three days 🙁
So that was my favorite little man and I’m so proud of him and how he enjoys all the traveling and different foods.
Wish us luck on our trip back tomorrow.
Talk to you soon.
