Getting lost driving into Vienna was nothing compared too driving into Prague. My God! Haven't those guys heard of street signs? It wouldn't hurt to put one up every now and then so tourists stupid enough to try to find their way into Prague by car would have a fighting chance. Steve took some comfort in the fact that an english speaking high school student he cornered for directions could not identify where they were standing on the map we had, when we were in fact less than 1km from our destination, but it didn't help. We got there in the end and it was a great place. Prague what a city! The number of tourists! The Beer! The Absinthe! The totally undecipherable Czech language! It's a Ted town if ever I saw one!
On our first afternoon Monika graciously came over to our lodgings and took us wandering down the the castle hill to Charles Bridge for a bite to eat and then back up again. The next day we went through the castle itself and then met Monika again at Charles Bridge and had a fantastic lunch and then an extended walk around the Stare Mesto taking in the astronomical clock and a spot of shopping.
Next time we come we'll arrive by helicopter directly to our hotel.
