Prague – Day 1 – Wednesday, September 22

Jeff and I took the bus and metro from the airport into the Old Town Square in Prague. We stayed in a residence – the top three floors were apartments that are rented out on a long-term bases (weeks or months), but the ground floor is a studio that is rented by the night. The Residence Tynska was just a block off the Old Town Square, just on the side of the main church. The studio was really cute, with a kitchenette, and table and chairs.

After we were checked in, Jeff and I went to find lunch. We tried a restaurant recommended in the guidebook called U Salu. It’s a funny place – it’s decorated like a medieval castle, but it has good Czech food. I had a soup (which was 35 krowns – about $2), and Jeff had dumplings.
After lunch, we walked around town a bit, mostly around the old town.

Unfortunately, we were both so sleepy that we were having trouble really enjoying the sightseeing. So, we decided to take a nap. We fell asleep at about 3pm, and I didn’t wake up until 6pm. Then we just hung out in our studio, had a dinner of bread and cheese from a local grocery store, and watched a few episodes of “How I Met Your Mother.” And then went back to sleep and got a full night’s rest!
