I woke up around 9am this morning, my plan was to go on at least one walking tour, Sandeman's free walking tour of Prague. I knew Sandeman's had a Castle walking tour in the afternoon, I figured I would see how I felt after the first walking tour and decide whether to go on the second or just explore Prague on my own.
I got breakfast at our hostel, first time I have made it to breakfast at any of my hostels in a long time. The hostel had a decent ham sandwich breakfast. I tried to access WIFI from the hostel lounge while eating breakfast, the WIFI was spotty and I gave up. I left the hostel at about 10:15 am for the meeting point for the free Prague walking tour, I was the first person at the meeting spot. By the time the tour left, there was a small crowd.
The free 3 hour walking tour took us all over Prague, highlights included some sights I had already seen, the astronomical clock, the powder tower, etc. Other highlights of the tour I had not seen, tribute to Mozart, the old Jewish Quarter, a Franz Kafka statue at the entrance to the Jewish Quarter, the Old/New Synagogues, the memorial to the Jews who were murdered during WWII, and more things I cannot remember.

We ended the Castle tour with a walk across the Charles Bridge. I was saturated with Prague and Czech history today, I am not sure how much I will remember, I definitely want to learn more about the history of this small country. Tomorrow I have an early morning train to Vienna.C
