Hi..day 14 ..I know that cos its a Monday! Well actually its Tuesday and Im in Starbucks again but blog is retrospective sometimes.
Firstly thanks to Craig et al for getting my ppt done. Now I just have to practise it.
Yday was a foot weary day around the wonderful streets of Prague...certainly a very impressive old city and teh squares are great with towers tec..shame about the countless tourists. Still ecoomies must thrive. This place has more torists than Poland.....heaps of americans and brits etc. Trash shops line the streets as well as teh nice glassware places.
Yday was harrowing getting odd train and to hotel but metro is easy to use..colour coded...not good for dogs tho so they still need their owners to help them ride trains which they do. Trams are funn as well. It is #22 tram and 2 train rides for me into main area with one transfer.
It rained yday afternoon for about 45mins..it was about 4pm so I had had enough of teh sights for one day so went back to hotel..actually a 2 star but its good enough for me..down a nice cobbled street and in a block of houses. Did a few bits of washing etc..had a beer and chips/nuts a si did it then went for walk. Came across a internet bike9pedal) place and a euro golf shop! Also found big poark about 100m from hotel in which is a vineyard! compleet with pagoda style cafe wine bar. had 250ml of ponot noir and chees eplatter for $20NZD..good stuff
The grabbed choc crossant..valid to mid 2009 so that gives u an idea of how many thingies are in it..and I dont mean calories. And a icecream and drink and had party back in rom as I moved washing around.
TV downstairs was blaring away..Im on first floor overlooking street so ahve 2 windowa and 2 rooms..actually 8 windows as there are 2 outise ones and 2 inside ones times 2..thats double glazing inj old buildings..and u need it with cobbled streets although i slept with 4 open.
Slept like a log..out in a minute and okay till about 7am.
Also bought train ticket to Vienna..I wil get the right station/train this time..might taxi there as moving luggage is a sod..I overpacked in clothes agin although there are lots of bike bits. $50 NZ to get from Prague to Vienna..4 hours!
More in next day or so if i can log on agin
