Well, off my soap box...after the museum we wandered across the river and rode the funicular up the hill to the Petrin Tower. This was inspired by the Eifel Tower and built around the same time. We went to the top to enjoy a wonderful view of Prague. Today there is a famous running marathon going on, so the streets are crowded; so it was nice to be on the other side of the river.
We also have been enjoying some of the Czech cuisine. Ate last night at a restaurant right next door; I enjoyed a chicken dish and Jerry had pork; both were cooked traditionally but I can't tell you right now what they were called. Tonight I would like to try some goulash since it is cold and rainy so a good day for a hot goulash. I also had some hot (mulled) honey mead at the Easter market last night (we cross the market often since it is in the main square near us).
Tomorrow we take the train to Dresden Germany where we will rent a car and move to our next apartment in Chemnitz, Saxony. This will be more rural and we will use the car to visit various sights in the Saxon (German) and Bohemian (Czech) countryside. Now with the European Union, there are no more borders; you drive into another EU country as easily as driving from one US state into another. Many EU countries (like Germany) use the Euro for currency so you usually do not need to exchange money. The Czech Republic has not joined the Euro currency zone yet so they still use their own currency.
So friends and family, until tomorrow...
