and knew my way around to some degree. I am staying at a great hostel,
the Prague Plus Hostel, lets see, a fully loaded kitchen to cook

starting WW1. After the war the, the Prision commander W
Schmidt was imprisioned there and executed.

passports. They were taken off the tram esscorted back to the hostel.
