The Namesti Miru Christmas Market is Open!

namesti miru christmas market 2012, Prague Czech Republic
The market at Namesti Miru opened yesterday, a welcome brightness in the days that darken so soon this month. This afternoon, on the way home from writing club, Caroline and I stopped by to see if our favorite vendors were back. Happily, they all were. We quality controlled a few - testing out a trdelnik, or sweet roll, and some cider - and C declared them ready for the season.

Tuesday evening, mid November, and still locals packed the square, meeting with friends after work. By the time we finished our cider, the sun had set and it was time for us to head off, content in the thought that for the next month, the market at Miru will be here to make the evenings bright.

GG- the lights this year are absolutely beautiful! It's like being in a circus tent with the sky as canvas above us.

Oh ... how I miss these markets. Do they have something like Glühwein??
