... about 4.5 hours sleep. Not enough for me. We might just walk our neighbourhood tonight in Prague, have a quick drink, some dinner then hit the hey. I need to look at my research of what places we want to visit in Prague now so I can hit the ground running in the morning. Oh ... the alps outside my window now are topped with ice and snow.
