Today was a "free" day for us in Prague. Juraj led a group of people over to the Jewish quarter and around a bit. I slept late, then walked up to the Saint Nicolas church (amazing!) and then did some shopping. The weather had been nice but broke for a downpour around 5:30 or so, then cleared up again.
We gathered around 6:45 to walk over to the Ambassador Hotel for our end-of-tour banquet. This lasted about 3.5 hours (!) and included a yummy dinner, folk dancers and a trio of musicians, and a lot (a lot!) of fun. Tim C and Colin had some "true or false" questions for the participants that were very funny, there were some songs, and Bernie had some fun observations for Juraj. We also presented Juraj and Jaroslav (our driver) some gifts and of course our heartfelt thanks and best wishes. We then walked back to the hotel to get some rest before our early morning departure.
