Guess where you can find Belgian beers in Prague? In the… chocolate museum?! o_0 whaat?!? That I was surprised is a serious understatement. And mind you good Belgian beers while at that, too bad I decided already to stick exclusively with Czech brews for my current trip.

Even Rodenbach Grand Cru! Eh, beer might be great on so many occasions but obviously doesn’t make a great chocolate filling.

Well, I really should be sleeping considering I only got 2 hours the day before, but alors, I am here.

Hey, you know, the two major cities I write about on here both begin with ‘B’!

Okay, I am going to sleep. Buenos noches amigos!
