Gorgeous room - 2 levels with precious view of the Old Town Square - love it!! and how we slept! Up to meet J and L at 8:30 a.m.- yet another wonderful breakfast. And off to the Jewish Quarter however closed for the day (tomorrow's activity). Saw the great Wenceslas Square complete with Jan Plach's memorial - amazing that a young man could be so intense about the cause as to commit suicide right here in protest against the regime. Tried to find Franciscan Garden but my directions didn't work - weaving through wee streets not effective LOL. John annoyed as we weren't listening to his directions HEH!!

Our morning cappuccino and off to find the Czech Beer Festival - number 5 Tram we were told, so we rode and we rode....opps, wrong way...back we go and we rode and we rode...That way says Tram driver - nope...Tourist Info...that way - YUP!! found it - pretty empty but we had beer and bratwurst (Lanett chicken) laffed a great deal - steins not cool enuf to purchase, paid the Toilet Princess (gotta upload a pic) and off again. Rode #12 Tram to Charles Bridge. Stopped for a second cappuccino of the day while a storm passed through - why do they taste so good here!! And who should walk by but Sean and Charlene (young couple from the cruise) This time I got his website - he's a dentist and an artist and we'd kicked ourselves for not getting it before we left them onboard - strange coincidence!! Rain stopped so great wander over an amazing bridge full of interesting people, statues and sites and then a wee bit of very fun shopping in 2 cool shops - Blue and Manufaktura - treats for all. Popped into a street cafe for beer and drinks just as a bit of rain hit. Perfect location to watch the astronomical clock do it's wee dance - then home to put feet up and prep for dinner.

John tried the Pork Hock tonite - omg this meat is disgustingly good but soooo huge!! Lanett and I munched through the best lamb roast we've ever had while R had a chicken skewer.Laffed all the way back to the hotel - Lanett and I pausing long enuf in front of shoe shop to decide which pairs to buy tomorrow lol...

Falling into bed with full bellies - erggg - health when we return home!!!!
