10 September 2015
We all slept very well but were excited to start our tour of Prague. We'd heard so many good things. We agreed that the first one up would find the grocery store (we were told it was just around the corner) and grab something for breakfast... it just so happened it was me. I felt very at home stepping outside the front door of the apartment building. There was a lady who walked out with me and she appeared to be carrying a shopping bag so I followed her. She lead me right to the small store. After picking up a few items, I stopped at the bakery that was across the street - homemade apple strudel made it into my "Wegman's" shopping bag.
We decided that our first day would be an adjustment day. The three of us had a month to travel and we didn't want to end up sick. We had breakfast, found a Tabak store to buy our tram tickets (110 Kc = about $4.50 for a 24 hour ticket) and we were off. We wandered to the Old Town Square to see the Astronomical Clock and "who did we run into???" Judy Lawler and two of her Irish friends, Sue and Emma. It really is a small world!! It was then on to Charles Bridge, a little lunch, back to the apartment for a rest and then back to the Old Town for a Vivaldi Concert at St Clementine's Church. The music was lovely and the acoustics great...even if we did get a little lost on our way there.
Prague really is about the people and the sites. Enjoy the photos from our first day - there will be many more to come.
