For any of you that don't know, I love postcards.
I've decided that this is probably the best way to document my time in Prague: a blog based on photographs and postcards.
I'll post more often this way (hopefully), and there will just be a small amount of text--a postcard's worth. And this way I'll be able to send "postcards" to everyone.

When we went to Florence it was one of the two biggest festival days of the year for them. The first night was the "White Night". A huge celebration for the night before May 1st. I knew that Prague & the CZ had big celebrations, it just never occurred to me that Italy would too. People of all ages--from those in strollers to their grandmas--were out in the streets until well past midnight. There were concerts and markets and events set up in every square. I ate the best artichokes & sun-dried tomatoes I may ever have in my life from an antipasti stand. And later that night we saw the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra Performing. At first we heard squeaks and honks and siren-like noises, didn't understand why everyone was so excited by this act. Thought it was awful music actually. Once we realized they were playing everything with vegetables we were quite impressed. Watch their video here:

  1. Ahhhh, the Duomo. We stayed in a hotel about 200 yards from the Duomo. Up on the 5th floor and when we looked out our window we could see it. What didn't occur to us until the next moring (early) was just how LOUD it would be! LOL But out time in Florence was totally delicious! We had some of the BEST FOOD EVER there!
