Icons and Beer


Yesterday we went on a surprise outing to Utrecht!


We visited one of my favorite spots:
The small cloister garden near the Dom tower.






I love this building with its stone ornaments and gargoyles.


I tried to see how I'd do as a gargoyle.
Not bad, I think.


Next we went to the Catherijne Convent museum where there was a exhibition about Icons


It was really interesting. They even showed all the stages in painting an Icon.


Me enjoying the sun shining through a window.


I got to pick a small souvenir for myself and I chose this 'bidprentje' (In memoriam card?) which I think is very beautiful. It depicts Saint Mechtilde.


Then it was time for food and a nice cold beer.




After that we did some shopping and finally we went to a restaurant next to one of the canals for:


More yummy food: papadums.


And more beer while enjoying the last bit of sun.


And then it was time to return home after a really cool day out.

Roses and Wine

We got these lovely roses from our best friends this Friday.

And I got to drink Glühwein.
That's a spicy wine that you drink hot. It was very tasty!

My Weekend Just Started

My weekend just started, so first it's time for a nice glass of Dropshot (Liquoriceshot) and then I'll bug my owner until she promises me we're going to do something fun.

Prague - Town Hall, Drinks and Food


On the Old town Square you can find the Town Hall. It's the building with the tower.

The Town Hall has a really big clock on its wall.
The clock is a tourist attraction as there's lots of cool stuff on the clock that moves when the clock strikes the hour.

I wasn't so lucky to be there when that happened though.
Still it's a very cool clock.

What I liked most about the Town Hall was a door that had lions on it! This one even has a goblin in his mouth!

And this one looks a bit more friendly than the goblin eater.


And now especially for Beanie some food and drinks pictures:

They had really tasty dark beer everywhere in Prague.

We found a restaurant called Svejk.
It's named after the Good Soldier Svejk, a character (and novel) by Jaroslav Hašek. They even had a picture of Svejk on the wall outside. We had to eat there of course!

They had huge pretzels! Yum.

More dark beer and Coke

At one restaurant we could order cocktails!

I ordered a Cuba Libre.
It was a very good cocktail and I wouldn't mind drinking it again sometime.

I also got to order these really big French fries.
They didn't have mayonaise or Ranch dressing though, so I ate the French fries with ketchup.

It wasn't all beer and booze I drank in Prague in case a certain Wench is wondering. I also had this delicious Ice Coffee.

With apple strudel!

And while we were in Prague my friend the Armadillo had his birthday, so we celebrated his birthday with Slivovice (plum brandy).


More pictures (although no more food pictures) tomorrow.

Birthday!

It was my birthday today! (Well, officially yesterday as it's already past midnight here.)

I had to celebrate with chocolate and some Wild Pig of course! (The chocolate was a birthday present for me and my owner. They do know us well ;-) )

A bird suddenly appeared!

It turned out that this bird was a birthday present for my owner and he's coming to live with us. So far he's been too bouncy to have a long enough talk to ask him his name, but I will find out soon.

Christmassy Stuff, Hippo and a Book


Yesterday we went to a birthday and there was a whole Christmas village! I explored it a bit ofcourse.

There were lots of animals, like this sheep.

Small houses that were all lit up.

Even a church!
Very beautiful!

Playing around with a Christmas light decoration.

Today at work my owner bought us something to drink and it had a hippo on it. I'm thinking this is why my owner wanted that particular drink, but she denies it.

When we got home there was a package waiting for me. It contained this book that I won over at vvB32 Reads.
Thanks Velvet and Pauline! Me and Voodoo Bride look forward to reading it.

Stinky Socks, an Orc and Easter Ears

Today I saw a really cool street art thingie and I took a picture of it for Coco as his owner is too busy to take him on an outing to see it for himself.
No stinky socks allowed! Hmmm... I think I agree with this sign.

I also visited the Amazing Oriental Warehouse and my owner got me a can of Mountain Dew.

It had an Orc on it! Isn't that cool?

At the supermarket I got a pair of Eaterbunny ears you can colour yourself and then put on your head if you want. I knew just the animal who would love these, so I got my crayons.

and I started colouring!

All done!

All that was left was cutting out the ears.

And they were ready to put on Rudolph's head! Rudolph really likes Easter and we get him an Easter decoration every year.
