Arrived in Prague today. We are staying at the Hilton which won the best hotel for 2009. it is very posh. What's even better is that my husband has finally accumulated enough points through business and leisure travel to become a Gold Hilton Honors Member! Yahoo. That means we get a very nice room, we get to use the executive lounge for free which has drinks and snacks all the time, free breakfast, free internet (although that is only in the lounge and only for 20 minutes at a time - not near long enough), and very friendly staff. One of our favorite sayings is "It's good to be king" and we can adapt that to whatever the situation. So here, "it's definitely good to be gold."
Point of interest in Prague today is the Pope. He is visiting here for 3 days. He arrived yesterday and leaves then Tuesday morning. I seriously doubt we'll run into him but you never know. More likely things will be blocked. There are many reporters here in the hotel plus a lot of cassock frocked men wearing crosses.
Our lovely waitress in the executive lounge tells us that guests in this hotel (Not the Pope) have been the Bush entourage, "Lady" Clinton (I'll just bet Hillary loves that title. I think it fits), the Obamas, Madelaine Albright, and we think she meant also Colin Powell. A real who's who in American politics.
Tomorrow we have to hit the local clinic as my cold is worse and my ear is acting up. As I am diving in a few weeks better get that fixed.
