Day 1

I finally got a jolt of the old zest for travel today. We walked along the river from our apartment into town…it took about an hour to stroll the three miles because we were stopping and taking pix and whatnot. The walk was pleasant and interesting but I was still rather indifferent and disengaged…until we stepped onto the Charles Bridge. My pulse quickened, I pulled out a travel guide, and we got to work. Saw a Gothic cathedral, which always gets me going, and even got snuck into the crypt by a nice docent who said…”no, the crypt is a special ticket for pre-arranged visitors…wait a minute…Shhhh!” Old Karel himself is down there in a fancy new box.

Tomorrow more of Prague Castle environs.
