Prague, Czech Republic

Alles geht gut jetz! Everything is going well now! We arrived Prague on Saturday, a day later than the team and staff with no further airline problems (Whew!). After checking into the Hotel Ceasar Prague, we walked to the famous Charles Bridge and joined the thousands of vacationing Europeans enjoying the views and statues on the bridge. Best bridge experience in the world. We met the team and guides in the Old Town Square at 05:30 and gave Julia a big hug for starters.

The guide gave us a good history of the square. Then Julia, Kathy, and I walked up around 10/11 stories to the top of the Astronomical Clock Tower for spectacular views of Prague. Naturally we watched the Astronomical Clock show at both 6 pm and 7 pm. We had supper at a cave-style restaurant later and retired for a much needed jet lag sleep.

Today, Sunday, we got up early and took a tram with the team to a volleyball arena south of downtown. Unlike the match Saturday, the OU Sooners played great and beat the Czech Club team in three sets. The team played outstandingly and Julia had a super match. Fun, fun!

We had lunch with the group, followed by free time. Even though Julia saw the Prague Castle yesterday, she gave Kathy and I the tour today. We took a tram near our hotel to and from the castle without a problem. The round-trip fare was 48 Korunas (around $2.60 each). The group had a nice supper in a German-style restaurant later.

We leave by bus tomorrow morning for Vienna, Austria, for an afternoon and evening of sightseeing before we go on to Bled, Slovenia, for the next volleyball match.

Yahoo! We are on the tour.
