   I have been walking  and exploring the city while testing the knees. Seems like its either raining or hotter then hell so I only managed a couple hours a day out on the streets. This city is so full of thin cobblestone streets, and I have found so many little shops or good places to eat or drink. I have found a great seafood stand that also serves smoked salmon. I took a walk to the St Charles bridge. On my arrival there it began pouring, so I got some rather crappy pictures. 
   
    I had been to Prague about a year ago so I wanted to spend a day looking up people I had met on that trip.

   So....Yesterday, I stopped in to see Declan, who manages the Irish Pub, "Caffrey's", in the "Old Town Square." He was really happy to see that I was now traveling through Europe. He said that people are always telling him how they are going to travel more, but I was the first to do it. Caffrey's serves an authentic, "Irish" Breakfast, along with great menu, a great atmosphere and staff. On real nice thing about them, you will get a great money exchange rate there. Later, that evening, I meet up with Greta, who is like a "Big Sister" for an evening of debauchery.

      Later, jumping on the last #12 tram back to the hostel, after a bit of reading the local travel guide, I was planning my trip to Kutna Hora, for tomorrow, I looked up to discover that I was no longer in Town. The bus instead of running its route was on the way back to its station for the night. A few minutes later I spotted a petro station where the tram stopped and got off. I was 3.5 kilometers from the city. So, putting my Berlin Hitchhiking experience to use. I walked to the station, where at around 1:00AM, At 6" 7" I am approaching drivers refueling asking for a lift back to Town. Well 40 minutes later, I get my ride, and the rest as they say is history. It probably help me that I had not been drinking, as I do not shag under the influence or "SUI"
