Prague adventures

It's probably just as well that we shelved the jazz club idea. We walked into town from the hotel for our dinner in the Cafe Louvre. Dinner was mighty fine, the company was genial, the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere. Then we walked back to the hotel. And after some light chat and a glass of wine, everyone went to sleep and slept right through until morning. I think it was all that walking around during the afternoon!

Yesterday we all went on a lunchtime cruise on the river. The sun was shining, the water was sparkly. The lunch was very nice - a serve yourself buffet. Fortunately Frannie and The Builder helped us. We might have been a bit little to reach the buffet and to carry the plates. For a long time the boat was stationary in what looked like a tunnel without a roof. We were a bit worried that the boat might be stuck. But The Builder explained that we were in a lock and that the water level was being raised so we could keep going on up the river above the weir. It was like being in a watery elevator!

After lunch, Frannie discovered that there were seats on the roof of the boat. We all went up onto the roof and watched the scenery. There was a man playing a accordion and we had a guide who could tell us what we were looking at. It was very interesting and lots of fun. The Builder and Frannie took very great care that we shouldn't get too close to the edge of the table and accidentally fall in the river!

After the cruise we sat in the Old Town Square for a couple of hours and watched the world go by. It was all very relaxing.

Then it was time to come home. The airport in Prague is much, much bigger than the terminal in Warsaw. There are shops and everything. Lots of things to do while we were waiting for our plane.

And now we are at Frannie and The Builder' house, enjoying a couple more days holiday before we go home to Freyja.

We seem to have eaten very lots of cheese while we were away.
