... for the railway station, we met yet others from our recently departed cruise friends. It seems our farewell was not that permanent after all!
Three of us took the underground to the main station, whilst two grappled yet again with the local taxi service. We relaxed for a short while in the first-class Eur-Rail lounge before boarding our train headed for Prague. Our journey was delayed by half an hour, which had us arrive around 11 pm.
