Amazing Prague




Eid, or any other holiday time in Oman, is very boring as everything is shut tighter than a duck's ass. That being so, my co-worker and I decided to jet to Prague to get away from the stuffy heat and boredom of the Middle East. What a great idea! It's amazing! And what was even better, the costs are minimal, perhaps the cheapest city in Europe, unlike London or Paris.

It's crazy easy to get around the city because the trams go everywhere, stop everywhere, and aren't crowded due to their ubiquitous deployment around the city. Yeah! I'll be going back for my millionaire honeymoon, the perfect place for a romantic getaway.

I just lost 30 pounds and lucky me I didn't regain a pound, even though there are so many coffee shops with great cakes. Slavia's coffee shop.

I turned a corner to see this fella hanging from a steel rod off a building. Yikes! Good thing it wasn't real, but who put it there? Prague - all kinds of surprises available.
