What I did
We slept in, again. How could we be blamed? The beds are just too comfortable. Plus, we missed breakfast. We picked up a burger lunch on our way to the Prague Castle. The funny thing about Prague, is a 0.5L of beer, is generally well cheaper at a restaurant than 0.3L of soft drink. This factor is converting Nat to a beer drinker. She found a nice lemon flavored one today.
We climbed to the castle entrance by around 1pm
We left the castle, grabbed some ice cream and found some grassy shade to escape the heat. Within half hour the weather had started to turn. By the time we left the castle it was cloudy and on our descent, it was raining. By the time we arrived near the Rudolfinum Theatre, a storm was brewing. It hit so suddenly, a howling wind, with heavy rain. Armed with only the worlds worst iced coffees, we ran for shelter. In minutes, it felt like a tropical storm had hit. A hot air balloon was knocked from the sky, advertising signs blown over, tree branches ripped off, the crash of lightning and bangs of bits and pieces being blown about. Being in the torrential rain for seconds meant being soaked or blown over.
We sheltered in the theatre, and ultimately purchased discount tickets to a classical music concert. The show was excellent with the best of Mozart, Vivaldi, Bach, Panchelbel and more, lasting around 80 minutes.
By the time the concert was over, so was the storm. We emerged to a clearing sky, and moved on to find the Jazz festival, and meet the ham of my dreams. Tomorrow, we move to a new hotel.
