A bit of a sleep-in and then off to explore. The streets are very irregular and seem to have little pattern so we expected to get lost frequently...and did. We found the train station to book our fares to Krakow. Then we took the tram across towns to the newer side of the city. Crepes for lunch and more wandering. We stumbled onto the Charles Bridge which is infested with tourists - must come back early in the morning. More wandering and taking a gazzilion pictures while ...
... of a downpour, complete with thunder and lightning! May need to hang out for hours.
Well, the storm passed quickly, we were so lucky with our timing. Decided to walk back to the hotel. Quite a bit further than we anticipated, but a lovely walk along the river.
Haven't decided on dinner plans. Looks like it may rain again, but we want to see Prague by night. We leave for Nuremberg ...
