a very quick tour
Having plenty of friends around London keeping us busy definately slows down the travel blogging!
Anyway, here is a much overdue update.
After a week of keeping busy in London, we took an early morning flight to prague.. Or at least we intended to.
Actually we turned up late having understimated the problems of early morning travel in London.
Having missed our flight, we spent a couple of days hanging around the airport like third-world touts, except we were looking for a flight instead of a wealthy tourist.
After an unplanned overnight in London, we finally got a fight and got our trip back on the rails.
Relaxing in the lounge after finally getting a flight.
Now we had only a morning in prague. We had a rapid driving and walking tour of the well preserved old city, and met up with friends.
Prague is incredibly well preserved because:
a) hitler kept it intact during WWII as he wanted it to be a kind of museum and
b) austria took it over and taxed them so heavily they couldn't afford to build anything new
The result is a small, walkable city with barely a modern building to be seen.
We were visiting during the easter weekend, and so the square had a jovial beer filled market setup providing plenty of happy drunken czechs, and the food and drink that was making them so.
