Three rules of travel.
One: Any people more than a couple people and the progress of the group slows to a crawl.
Two: Distances are deceptive
Three: Every time somebody comes to Prague, if I just follow what they want to do, go and see the things they’ve heard about, I will discover new things.
After checking the gang into their B and B, we decided to stop at the restaurant downstairs for drinks, but some people ordered food so everybody ordered food. The restaurant (Globus in Karlin) has pretty good food, and although I sometimes think their prices are a bit high, when our total bill was produced, it wasn’t so bad. But, the service was slow. So, a second round of drinks was ordered because the food was slow. Then, Helena came just as we were finishing up and she ordered a meal, so a few people were on their third drink.
Most didn’t have a clear plan, but Russ wanted to see the Dancing Building, so that became our goal. I suggested we walk along the river to get there, a nice walk a bit cooler by virtue of being near the water, and not beyond reasonable walking distance.
Turns out it was well beyond reasonable walking distance, and the older members of our party (I would say I’m the youngest of the oldest) were all totally beat, but we went up to the terrace at the top of the building for a drink, and I must confess, in all the time I’ve been in Prague, I’ve never been up there. Lovely view.
I still think it’s an ugly building. But, that’s one we can tick off the list.
