Lovely, right? This is the view out of my window in the mornings. I believe the only time I have had blooming flowers in a flower box outside my bedroom window (before Ohio, that is) would have been at the hotel in Prague. Mmmmmm…. Prague. Wasn’t that lovely?
Anyway, this trip has been so fantastic. Not only have my accommodations been SUPERB, but I have had so many laughs and excellent conversations with Julie and Mike. And the food… oh man, the food. Remember that amazing ice cream I had last night? We were right by another one of their locations today around 2 pm. So because I am an adult who makes my own life decisions, I had Jeni’s ice cream for lunch. Hell, yes I did. And man, was it delicious.
We also had an amazing home-made breakfast (turnip, chorizo egg bake), a beautiful walk through the city and we ended the night with dinner at a gastropub and Elysium at this amazing bar/movie theater.
I am now packing up my bags (trying to get all my goodies to fit!) and crawling off to bed so I can rise bright and early for my flight tomorrow. I am not as sad as I thought I would be leaving, only because I had such an amazing time that I am certain I will be back here very, very soon.
For your internet share of the day, I’m sending you to Honda’s recent efforts to help save Drive-In movie theaters across the country. I was thinking about this tonight because the theater where we saw Elysium is a single screen, old-timey theater that has converted the lobby into a very cool bar. The kind of bar you would frequent even if you weren’t seeing a movie. Anyway, I was pondering if they were going to convert to digital, and I found myself hoping they could afford it because I would hate to see this place close (much like the drive-ins that Honda is trying to save). Watch the short video here to understand the plight that mom-and-pop theaters are going through right now.
