Monday, December 17, 2012

after breakfast - goodbye to Gerhard + Jenni who are going on a 4 day skiing holiday in the czech mountains. walter and I go on a walking tour : 3 hours - walk through the little quarter. Beautiful! Soft rain. Walk starts at Charles bridge. Love every moment. Want to come again and stay at hotel Aria in the middle of romantic little quarter with baroque gardens at back. Our guide Helena is excellent - good sense of humor. Helena's joke: a Spaniard, Italian and Greek go to a bar for a drink. Who pays the bill? Answer: the German. she hates all politicians. In 2002 the Prague mayor promissed on tv - no worries, the bur. of metereology confirmed no floods - please use underground. It turned out the worst flood ever - worst than 100 year floods. 18 people drowned.

Back at hotel - chat with Bruce and Elmarie from NZ and Jody from US. W. and I walk to the shopping mall next to the Hilton. Buy coffee, mince pie (Walter's favourite) and roll with our last Czech money. w. makes sure he gets the whole series of Czech coins for his coin collection.

Bus leaves 12:30 for Nuremberg. Very foggy - snow lying everywhere. We stop on highway for lunch - just cafe and toilets. Walter buys liquer We arrive at our boat at 4:50 pm. Brand new boat. Lots of space. River facing wall is floor to ceiling glass sliding doors. Lots of cupboards. Drinks - meet the crew. lots of Dutch and Hungarians amogst the crew. Dinner with Esmarie, Bruce and Jody. Chocolate on pillow. Love every minute so far!
