After our early start yesterday and our late finish we both took the chance to catch up on some sleep! Thankfully the Marriott serves breakfast until 11 ... how civilized!! Mick was up around 8:30 plotting and planning to protect us from all possible future dangers and Elaine enjoyed a significant lie in. After breakfast we chatted with Martina who booked us onto a tour of the Jewish area in the afternoon and sorted a few other things for us. Elaine headed back upstairs to read the SMH on the iPad and catch up on the news of the world and home and Mick found his way to the larger railway station to buy our tickets for the next leg to Berlin for Monday.
After a beer and sausage lunch ("Czech tradition" grinned the vendor to Mick) we found our way, via the really swanky shops in Parizska St. to the meeting with Matthew, a young local Jewish man, an a small group of retired American Jews. They were surprised and pleased to find a couple of Gentiles who would be interested enough to spend three hours finding out about the history of the Jews in Prague, we were surprised at their reaction and felt, if anything, it was a simple manifestation of the insularity of the average American - we muttered something about reading books and education, but felt most welcome (Mick kept nudging Elaine saying : "Don't mention Gaza!").
The day was very warm and sunny - defiinitely a sunscreen and hats day!! - so we repaired for a tourist beer in the front eople-viewing row of the Old Town Square before home for a shower, change and out (on the trams for a change this time!) to a "night spot" called the "Jazz Dock" which is on the river and highly recommended among the hipsters on TripAdvisor etc.
A tram ride home through different parts of the city, and ice cream and a welcome bed completed a simple day in Prague! This is a very lovely and entrancing city.
