Of Prague: Bonus Easter Holla!

There was some sort of Easter festival happening while we were in Prague. There were little markets selling elaborately painted eggs and these delicious pastry things shaped like barrels and baked wrapped around a rolling pin. There was also a stage, where traditional (I presume) Czech dancing and singing happened. A polite observer might say that to a modern observer, there are strong similarities between many of the Central and Eastern European nations' traditional folk dances. At least the Latvian ones don't seem to often feature children attempting to sing.

There was also traditional food, which, not unlike some other parts of Central and Eastern Europe, involved a lot of sausages.

There were also olden days costumes in evidence, which were, in fact, refreshingly not at all like the ones in Latvia.
