Another long lie in today. Im feeling alot better than I did but I still wanna take it easy. Today has been a wander about kind of day, not really going for the sights with a purpose but just wandering around the back streets trying to avoid the tourist hoards and chill out as Im hitting the castle area tomorrow so Ill need all my energy for that. Have just seen a photography exhibition on Prague from the mid 1800s until the early 1900s. I didnt realise and Im sure a lot of people dont either that Prague looked pretty different just 100 years ago. In an attempt to 'modernise' and be like more Western cities massive areas of the city were simply demolished, in particular the Jewish area, to make way for things like a boulevard based on the Champs Elysee. Quite suprising really. Am off now to the Communism museum....
