I Am Lucille Ball.

In Prague less than an hour and already I've shorted out the power to our entire floor of the hotel. Memo to myself: US power strips and European power adapters don't mix.

Oh no! You don't have a converter? Ask for one at the hotel desk.

We bought our converter at the airport, but some European hotels keep them at the desk for US guests.

My brilliant idea was that if I brought a (US) power strip, I could plug it in to a converter and then have a whole power strip for our US devices.

I was wrong.

I thankfully bought two cheapie converters at JFK and they seem to work fine. Unless you plug a power strip into them. Then "kablooie!"

Ah, I see. Big whoops!

Were the hotel employees angry?

Oh, we didn't tell them. aaronbenedict told them that we plugged in a converter and it blew, and I hid the power strip in my suitcase.
