We again started our day off with lattes at Starbucks. Only this time, it was the Starbucks that Denise and Blair usually go to as part of their regular routines in the morning. Darn, I am going to have to remember to get a picture one of these days.
Then it was off to the Old Town Square again to pick up tickets at Cafe Mozart for the dinner and jazz event Friday evening. We are also hoping to see the lighting of the gas lights at night, too. I will post an image of a gas light so that you get an idea of what they look like. The city is so beautiful and so clean!
Cafe Mozart is a very formal area, and even in the middle of the day there was a pianist playing jazz on what looked to be a Baby Grand piano. We were able to reserve a table by the window where we could view both the pianist and the Old Town Square. Cafe Mozart is directly across from the Astronomical Clock.
We also navigated the streets to the side of the Charles Bridge where we eventually found the Klementinum and were able to purchase our tickets for a tour and concert at the Klementinum featuring Vivaldi's Four Seasons.
Then, it was lunch time at TGI Friday's. Yes, they even have American culture in Prague.
Blair had to leave to go back to the flat to get ready to fly, so Denise and I carried on spending more time in the Old Town Square, taking pictures, enjoying the scenery and having some wine. Denise bought a beautiful piece of artwork: Spray Paint Art. It was soo fascinating to watch the artist create this work. He even has a Facebook Page. Must remember to check it out. Here is a link to see the types of things that he does: https://www.facebook.com/SprayArtPraha
We finally left Old Town Square and then ended up at Wenceslas Square, which is not a square but a street similar to Les Champs Elysees in Paris, France.
Trucking home, we stopped in at the grocery store, picked up a few groceries and headed home, finishing off the day, with you guessed it, 105 steps to the flat! LOL
