On the road from Budapest to Prague

We arrived sometime in the afternoon at the Prague Hilton, located in downtown Prague. We decided to rest, get cleaned up and eat dinner there.
Said our goodbyes to most of our fellow passengers, then boarded a bus for a 7-hour trip to Prague. We stopped at Brno, Czech Republic, for lunch. Merrill tried the wild boar sausage and I had the Vienna sausage with a delicious chicken noodle soup. We drove through a snow flurry in the mountains. The temperature in Prague, "City of a Hundred Spires" is definitely cooler than what we experienced on the rest of the trip. One of the guides told us how they learned Celsius to Fahrenheit conversions: 1. Double the degrees Celsius. 2. Subtract 10%. 3. Add 32 and you have the temp F. For example: 11° Celsius, doubled= 22°; subtract 10% --(2) = 20°; Add 32 = 52° degrees Fahrenheit. That's the temp when we arrived in Prague.
