Prague, Czech Republic
09.11.2011 - 09.11.2011
Today I took the tour around the city, which was very good and interesting.
After the city tour was a tour of Prague Castle, which I also took. I said I'd gone to the top of Prague Castle yesterday, but that was to the top of the monastery in Prague Castle. I'm tempted to re-edit the last post to fix my mistake but I'm resisting.
Prague Castle is actually an area of buildings that are just surrounded by a castle wall. We went all round the place.
One really interesting point was a spot on a small raised circle in the middle of a semicircle of steps. When someone is standing on the spot they hear their voice as if it is being amplified and they are standing in a huge tin can. But their voice is still normal to everybody else. It is really weird.
Even though the two tours took the entire day, and the day has been really good, I've got not much to post about since most of it is a stream of small things that are muddled together by now.
One thing is that I've had a sore throat for a couple of days, which today has turned into a runny nose. So I must have the flu.
I needed to do laundry either tonight, I know I've been doing that alot, but I only have three pairs of pants and in Berlin there is smoking in pubs and clubs. That with drinking myself makes me only want to use pants for one day in Berlin. So today was the second day in my last pair of pants.
Unfortunately tomorrow is a day tour that isn't every day of the week, so I wanted to get a load done for tomorrow. Otherwise I would need to do it tomorrow morning and do the tour later.
Fortunately, there was a laundry place open after the second tour. So I went there to get it done to go onto the tour tomorrow.
Unfortunately, even though there was time for a wash and a dry, it needed a second dry, which I couldn't do as the place was closing. With the flu I am especially keen about not wearing damp clothing. But unfortunately I had to wear my jacket wet and the walk back, and it has gotten cold. I've spread the clothing out on chairs and a table near the radiator (though not too close). Hopefully it should be dry then as I don't want to waste the day trip tomorrow on drying clothing when I'd already gone to the trouble doing laundry tonight.
