Czech Republic

We caught a late morning train from Krakow...first class this time for only $20 more per seat...and the service and comfort was worth the seven hour train ride to Prague.  We shared a section with some folks from Canada, one couple now living in Prague.  David Strazz is a mixed media artist.  He and his wife have been in Prague for five years.  They were charming and engaging and full of great stories.  Joann and her daughter are from Montreal via Santiago, Chile.  We were an international group.

We arrived Prague and it was a five minute walk from the train station to the apartment.  Rick and Susy met us on the street.  After spending a bit of time catching up we had dinner at a local Mexican restaurant.

For the next four days we toured the city on foot, walking miles and miles each day.  We did two walking tours on one day and were wiped out.  Our guides Lana and Michal were well-informed, funny, and full of local stories.

Our last day was spent riding Tram 22 around the city, getting some last minute supplies for our journey to Kenya, and resting up for the next, big adventure.
