Yesterday Sherree had heard a tour guide tell his rather large flock that a restaurant had a terrace that overlooked the square from the rooftop. So after a look through the Jewish sector of town we sat above and feasted our eyes on the rooftop level of Prague. It really was one of those special moments, Sherree having a warm broth and me having a cold Czech beer just checking out all the church spires
Before lunch we visited the Jewish Ghetto which was decimated during the Second World War; something like 150000 were cut down to a lowly 1500
Of course the Jewish quarter now has a captive market so they charge quite a hefty fee to go through their museums, synagogues and graveyards. By the end I had well and truly seen enough religious artifacts. No doubt I'm a religious doubting Thomas and most of the Torahs and silver that hadn't been stolen by the Germans looked impressive. I'm not really certain that the German tour guides and groups come down this neck of the woods; they couldn't feel too good about it.
I'm sitting writing this blog on New Years' Eve in a bar in the lobby of the Hilton Hotel because they don't have internet in the rooms. I don't think in this regard that they have kept pace with technology and are on their game but there is a benefit for me
Happy New Year to all our friends and family wherever you are celebrating. Thinking of you all with love.
Puszi puszi which means kisses!
