We got out for a walk around Prague this morning to see the sights. This turned out to be a nice 10 hour walk with a lot of breaks, some street food, lots of fried cheese and coffee and pastries. It seems that everywhere you go there is something better and nicer and more beautiful to see. We are amazed at how wonderful this city is, and how many people are here. We had a perfect walking weather, beautiful sunshine and all around wonderful time.
Note to self – do not wear leather soled shoes – they are brutal to walk around in on the hundreds of miles of granite sidewalks made out of little 10×10 cm cobble stones. Also avoid going for a canoe ‘ride” down the river to get that perfect view of the famous Charles bridge. There is a small water fall, a great view of the bridge, and people in canoes are not paying attention. There were at least 4 boats that capsized while we were taking pictures, and the unsuspecting tourists had to be fished out of the river by not one but 3 rescure boats that are stationed there.
