This morning we went on a wonderful walking tour of the city of Prague. The weather was crisp (cold), but the stories were interesting.
Along the “Golden Lane”
After the tour Prof Nielsen and I had lunch with the tour guides and a colleague of them. They told us how exciting it was for their country that they now have a presidential election coming up and that for the first time the people of the country were allowed to vote. Until now, they were never allowed to vote for either the local or presidential elections – the leaders were selected by the parliament. It was quite interesting to see these three people so excited about something that we take for granted.
Dinner was in a basement restaurant. It was great food in a comfortable atmosphere. An accordion player and dancers entertained us. Even I got up to dance for a short while. My dance partner helped me to count in her broken English 🙂 The songs were very traditional Czech songs along with some tunes that we were familiar with. He played some songs from the Beetles and even a piece from “the wall” by Pink Floyd.
