Lazier, relaxing morning, strolled the streets of Prague, picked up goofy T-shirts for the boys, bought our last Trdelniks for the car ride to KV.  Lovely ride with a wonderfully friendly hotel car driver who was surprised we knew what was in the fields - Hops!!  That's why there's so much beer in Czech R - fields and fields of hops. 
GrandHotel Pupp - quite the place - see pic.  311 years old - quite the grand lady - we feel like royalty.  Lamborghini in the drive of the hotel. Very little English spoken here - almost to the point of being humourous as the grumpy server for lunch exhibited.  Nice chap behind us taught us our first Russian word - for spoon - Luska!  Many Russians!!  I feel thin again!!  but am not!  Was so nice to finally find a good salad just with grilled chicken for lunch. Strolled the streets - one side then down the other of the river that divides KV,  Gorgeous spa town but oh my goodness the pricey shops - every high end shop I know and many more I don't!!  Dior and Armani clothes shops for babies and children even!!
Back for feet up after a steam and hot tub (booked massages for next day - $50 for 90 minutes!!) and then freshened up for dinner. Went to the Becher's Bar for our 2 for one cocktail - underground in this place! crazy!!   Tired but were glad we dragged ourselves up the hill and then an elevator to a great little restaurant overlooking KV.  More meat (what else??) pork tenderloin so yummy and R tried Lamb Knuckle - not as big as his pork knuckles LOL and equally as yummy.  Even went for the homemade apple strudel!  Funny singer - the only English songs he knew was Frank Sinatra and asked if we wanted it - NO!!  thanks tho' - Czech music was super tho' but the police arrived near the end of our meal and told them to turn it down - guess it echoes in this small town or someone grumpy complained.  Thought the restaurant was being robbed - they were so serious about it!!  Dogs even given bowls of water in the restaurant - Rich actually admitted he was warming up to getting a pooch!! Charcoal will have a friend!! 
Off to sleep - tired but a good tired.
