This weekend is my last full weekend in Prague because next weekend I'm going to Istanbul and then the one after I'm going to Bratislava but just for one night. Because of this Joanna and I decided we had to make the most of our weekend. On Thursday we went to dinner at a really good vegetarian place and then we tried to go to a witch burning. In Prague they burn witches to bring in the spring. Unfortunately we were a little late so we did not get to see the witch being burned but we did get to see lots of high school kids throwing up. Yesterday we went to the good Bohemia Bagel for burger weekend. All the Bohemia Bagels are good but this one has burger weekends, which is how it got this name. This was after we did some work in the morning and I wrote the first half of my paper. After lunch we went to this Vietnamese market that was very similar to Canal Street in New York. I got some Versace sunglasses which were a special prices since I was her special friend. Then I got a scarf for Istanbul since we have to cover our heads at some places. Then after the market we came back, I finished writing my paper and then we had dinner and went out for the night. Today we went to Divoka Sarka which is a really pretty hill and valley in Prague. We walked up to the top of the hill and had a picnic and got to see tons of rocks and had great views of the city. It was really steep on the way up and I was wearing sandals because I thought it was just a walking path type thing so it was a little tough but it was completely worth it. Then we just sat there and read for a while and came back to our room. Tonight we are going to Cafe Savoy.
