On Tuesday we took the train (5.5 hrs.) to Prague and are spending some time here. This city is so beautiful - 8 bridges, a castle, Old Town, Lesser Town, New Town, the Jewish center - so, so much to see!! Yesterday we took a tour including lunch and a boat cruise which introduced us to the history here. Then we walked over Charles Bridge, the oldest and most beautiful bridge you have ever seen. We actually walked over it twice - once in daylight and once at night with all the lights of the city shining on the water. We also attended a classical music concert in an old church. It was so perfect! Ave Maria with trumpet and pipe organ was the most wonderful music I think I've ever heard. I don't have any pictures today (using the free internet in the hotel lobby here!) but I've taken hundreds on my camera (again!) so I'll have lots to share later. Today it's off to the Prague Castle and maybe some shopping. We'll be back in Katowice later tomorrow afternoon. We miss you all! Thanks for staying tuned!
