Natalie and I arrived at our hotel at around 2:30 today. Both flights were oddly pleasant. We both watched a movie--which we both enjoyed mostly because it was...a movie, and we watched the whole movie. Weird. Austen Kuchar was outstanding! Upon arrival we quickly dropped our bags in the hotel, freshened up a bit--and off to explore! We walked all over Hradcany, Mala Strana, and Kampa island--the three lovely little neighborhoods on the west side of the Charles bridge (our hotel is located in Mala Strana). Had a lovely dinner at Cafe Savoy--I ate various kinds of sausage with cabbage and potatoes. Czech food is not, how to put it...light. After dinner we walked about Nove Mesto and found the Globe--an English language bookstore. We are hoping to get up early tomorrow and walk the Charles bridge before the hoards arrive, then perhaps a tour of the castle, and the opera later on. A full report to follow tomorrow.
