As we emerged from our train compartment ready to deboard at 8 a.m., we ran into one of our Habitat workmates who had stayed a few extra days in Budapest and was now also ready to explore Prague.  Leaving our bags at his hotel, we roamed the city together and managed a quick overview before Larry and I headed out to the airport that evening.  Prague was lovely even in the misty rain, with its wonderful multicolored sidewalks of granite cubes and its beautiful and colorful buildings.  The Charles Bridge, flanked with its many sculptures and the several other pedestrian ways were as delightful as the renown astronomical clock in the huge Old Town Square.  The shops (unlike Romaniaís) were resplendent with Czech crystal, garnet and amber jewelry, wooden toys and other handcrafts.  We merely scratched the surface of what the city offered and hope to return some time in the future.  We didnít even get to explore the impressive castle or the extensive Jewish history trove for which the city is known.
