My hair was still a god-awful mess. Four weeks after going dark the color faded a little and the orange was showing through. I got kind of sad when I was looking at these pictures of us in Prague because all I could think about was my stupid orange hair. But why sit around and be sad when you can throw money at a problem? That's what I did yesterday. The hair dresser in Brandenburg is really nice and she speaks English but for some reason she still didn't understand what I wanted when I asked her to tone my hair. In desperation I called the colorist in Hamburg at Haarkunst and asked her to explain her toning process. She pulled up my file and explained it all, saving me from more problems. (Her name is Nora and she is fantastic.) Now my hair is toned. It's still way too dark but at least it's closer to my natural shade and I plan on taking it lighter slowly over the next six months. It's going to cost me, both time and money. Please remind me to never get myself into this kind of mess again.

We haven't taken that many city trips since having Sophie but this worked out just fine. She was well behaved when we were eating out. Mostly because we let her play with out phones but whatever works. She was happy to walk and napped in her stroller, giving us a few hours to go shopping and check out museums. Almost two is a good age for traveling. A long weekend was fun but I think we could have easily stayed several more days. Prague has a lot to offer.

I was impressed with the lovely hotel room. We were within easy walking distance to all the attractions and the price was really reasonable. It was expansive and filled with antique furniture. Sophie had a lot of fun running around and jumping on the bed after being in the car for five hours.

I have seen a lot of churches but the cathedral in Prague was really, really beautiful. I think it was as memorable as the Mosque in Cordoba, Spain. That mosque is really impressive if you ever get a chance to see it.
Usually the insides of these places are a let down but something about the paintings, the light and the stained glass windows combined to make a pastel vision. So pretty!

My one regret is that I didn't drink any beer. Why didn't I drink any beer!? I should have had at least one. H let me try his and it was delicious. The food was really good, it was my first taste of Eastern European cuisine and I was pleasantly surprised.
I am hoping we also get to see more of Eastern Europe this year. Now that we're in Berlin Eastern Europe is an easy drive. I look forward to taking more road trips with my little family, now that I know Sophie is happy to go along.
