Prague – Day .5

We arrived at the airport in Prague about 1340, about 20 minutes later than we should have.  Not sure what the deal was, but so much for German precision as Lufthansa didn’t seem to be in any hurry getting us out of Frankfurt.  More on that later.

Oddly unlike other European towns, Prague doesn’t have rail running between it and the city, so we took the airport express bus.  60 czk (about $3) each and about 40 minutes later, we were at the bus drop-off outside the main railstation.

It took us a few minutes to figure out where to go next.  There was just an elevator sticking above the ground so we took it and found much of the train station to be underground.  We gave the address of our hotel to a gal working the information booth, but I figured out about a hundred yards later that she did not point to the right direction.  We turned around, walked across the street, and good thing the name of our hotel had the address in it or we would have walked right by it.  Things are different here…no big flashy signs to identify things.  We just noticed the address.


I’m a bit behind on this since I had to overcome some hurdles getting logged in to the site from over here.  My website host has taken some security measures to protect his service, but I think we are through those now so hopefully more and better updates to come.


Here’s the 23rd photo I took in Prague…not too shabby.
