We got back into the apartment and I went to get my computer out so I could check the internet to see where a close grocery store was. Remember all the bad stuff I thought we left in Poland, and the smooth sailing we are due for? Not yet. My backpack is not in the apartment. My one wheeled anchor, which by this point is starting to develop a hole in the wheel-less corner, is in the room, and everyone else's bags are here. Landon has been here asleep the whole time. There is no way someone came in here, only stole my bag, and left. Fortunately I had my passport and travel wallet in my coat pocket. I deduct that the only possible place for my bag to be is at hotel reception, or in that taxi cab we took from the Prague station to reception. Obviously, since we have been living in a cold unfortunate world the last few days, it has to be in that taxi and I am never going to see it again. I start walking (at this point with the wrap I can actually kind of walk and not so much limp) back down the street towards the reception 4 blocks away. I hear what I expected when I ask if they have a backpack, the answer “what backpack.” Just when I am about to ask the hotel guy if I can buy a bullet and rent a gun, he tells me that a cab driver did come back by the place and see if I was here because I did forget it in his cab. The driver left his number. I have the hotel guy call the cab guy and after a minute of listening to them speak Czech, hotel guy informs me that cab guy will be out front in about 15 minutes if I can wait for him
The rest of the day was great. The three of us walked around the central part of Prague, had lunch and enjoyed some of the best beer in Europe. If you love beer, and you haven’t been to Prague, you don’t really know what good beer is. That night we went to “Europe’s largest dance club” which boasted 5 levels and music types. It had everything from lighted floors to strobe lights to go go dancers to hip hop and all the rest. It was interesting. It also made us realize we are creeping out of our mid twenties and that kind of scene isn’t as fun as it used to be for us.
