Germany: 12/07/2015 (Prague)

The plan for today was to meet up at a certain spot at 10:30 to start a guided walking tour.  We got there, waited and waited, no guide.  So we said screw it and went ahead and walked toward Old Town Square.  As we arrived at the Astronomical Clock we saw a TON of yours getting ready to start. 

  
We decided to join in on a free English tour led by a guy from Cali who visited Prague 11 years ago, met a girl, returned two years later, got married, had kids, and has lived here ever since.  I’m so glad we did it.  It lasted about 2.5 hours and he showed us sights we had seen, and other we hadn’t.  

    
    
    
   
Most importantly, he explained each site in extreme detail, told stories and Czech myths, and pointed out aspects of the buildings that I would have never noticed n my own.  The Gothic Tyn Church has two towers and dominated the Prague Skyline.  One tower is actually larger than the other.  They are named “Adam and Eve”, the larger being Adam.  

  
Just one of the cool facts that I would’ve missed out on had we not gone on the tour.  After the tour we headed towards the Charles Bridge, stopping on the way for some hot wine and Trdelnik. 

   
   
We then went to a Czech Comic store before heading to grab some pizza for dinner.  I’m quite ready to get back to my normal diet!!
