Ok so we have had three really full days of touring around. I have plenty of pictures to share, but Fr. Michael took my camera to his room and went to bed. So here is a run down with photos to follow, hopefully tomorrow.
Tuesday: we got up and at 'em early, 9:30ish. We went touring the Charles Bridge and Castle area. Lots of fun and a good learning experience. Can you say "defenestration", children? We spent most the morning there then went for lunch late in the afternoon. Now whilst in lunch the heavens opened up and rain started pouring down on the city and our plans to stroll around...the best laid plans, etc... Paul and Michael went to purchase tickets for our trains to Berlin. Bryan wandered around alone and I did as well, then home quickly to hotel because the rain was so miserable. Dinner was great in a wine cellar close to our hotel. We stopped by a bar for a pivo and then to bed.
Wednesday: up and at 'em early 9:59, just in time for breakfast, which was great except for Bryan who showed up a bit late and the women who was the main waiter was not pleased with him. She told him something like: No! All close now! No more! Bryan did get some food and the day was on...right after a mid morning nap. All this time we had no idea where MK was...he was off exploring the city on his own. So the whole group got out of the hotel by about 1:15 and we were off to explore more of the city. We went to Wenceslas Square then poked around the Communist Museum, quite an eye full, to say the least. We all needed some more food so of to a cafeteria for a short/long lunch. Food was okay, service was okay, tummies felt great after so a good outing. Bryan wanted to do some shoppin' so shoppin' he went. MK, PWB and I went to the subway to go out a few stops from the tourist area to see what normal people live like. I have to say I could not have lived there now, and certainly not during the communist revolt. All back to subway, I wanted a massage for my aching feet, neck and back. On Monday I spotted a Thai massage place and told them I would be back for a massage and they still remembered me, thanks to my guardian angel.The massage was great...I will post pictures as soon as I get them. PWB and MK went to try their luck at a casino. We all met back up and went to dinner at a wonderful resturant a great meal was had by all. The decor was quite nice. It did feel a bit like a Sauna, who know maybe my body is going through some changes...who knows. Anyway after dinner we stopped and had another small dessert Gellato,,,,,,mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
That was enough and we were done for the day at 10pm. Got our hotel for Budapest reserved and all were off to bed, except me. I needed to fill you all in on what is happening. I hope I have been of some help. If you need to know more just let me know. We love answering questions here. Enjoy...next time with pictures. Peacce
