Old Town Square


Astronomical Clock, third oldest in Europe, oldest that still functions. When it chimes, the skeleton rings a bell, and saints come to the little windows above the upper clock dial.


Views on the Vltava River lunchtime cruise


Red Bull sponsored a festival of sorts. Part of the festivities included dumping various objects into the river making them 'fly', in this case, a cow. It was Sunday afternoon, and lots of young families were out enjoying the event.


We were served a drink of Becherovka herb liqueur as a "welcome aboard" appertif for the lunch cruise. Michelle and I both really liked it. Finding some at home was a challenge. It is not available in Ohio, but I found it on the internet in Champaign, Illinois, which was not to far off my route on a visit to Missouri.
