Prague – First Night

From the train ride today:

We arrived in Prague around 3.30 p.m. today, and arrived at the apartment just after 4 p.m.

The apartment?  This place has nearly as much floor space as I do in Saint Louis! We have a large living room with two overstuffed sofas, a full dining room and kitchen, 1.5 baths, washer/dryer, and two large bedrooms with queen-sized beds and all sorts of extra room.  My bedroom windows look out on the Charles Bridge (only one of the oldest in-use bridges in the world at 750+ years).  And the living room has views of the Prague Castle.

Dinner tonight was a lovely Czech goulash at the nearby Tre Stoleti.

We took a short walk before dinner, but we are both dead tired today.  I suppose that’s what two days of bike riding will do….

The train journey today was totally uneventful, although the trip along the Elbe River east of Dresden and into the Czech Republic was one of the most beautiful journeys I have ever taken!
