Like last Christmas Eve in Kandersteg, Switzerland….I wanted to start my day with a bit of local shopping for Christmas gifts for Michael and check out the area….
I walked the short distance to Náměstí Míru (Peace Square) to see the Christmas Market. Today is Sunday, and every shop was closed as my made my way to the square. When I arrived only a few booths of the Christmas Market were open, to only find out today is the last day – the entire market would be shutting down for the season in an hour!
I walked up into Church of St. Ludmila. A mass was happening. Glass doors within the entrance, closed in the mass to everyone walking in to look inside the church. I’m hoping Michael and I can attend a Christmas mass here this evening!
I walked back down into the Christmas Market. I tried Trdelník. This traditional local street food treat surprised me as it was not as good as I thought it would be, because it was a bit dry for me. But I am happy I tried it!!
Next I tried Grilovany Oštepek Chleb Brusinky – grilled cheese on bread with cranberry jam! I also had a cup of mulled wine! This sandwich was different and the more I ate it, the more I liked it!!! I’d have this again (and the mulled wine too! 😉 )
I was successful in a purchase for Michael….and for me too at the Christmas Market….because our feet have been cold!!
