Notes from the tour…

It has been COOL and COLD!

Walking tours and more walking…Berlin, Leipzig, Bad Lausick, Dresden, Karlovy Vary, and now Prague.

The walking tour in Prague was sunny and not windy, but still super cold (high 1C).  The students performed in St. Nicholas Church .  It was so cold the signers could see their breath as they sung.  Finally some heaters came on so things began to warm up a bit.

Afterwards it was dinner at a folk restaurant.  The food was delicious.  The students danced and sang and at the end of the night the choir students performed a song for the restaurant musicians too.

The food throughout the trip has been fantastic.

There was another walking tour of Prague which included a walk over the Charles Bridge, through the Jewish Quarter and toured many of the squares.  Could it be the weather is actually warming up?  All reports are that the students love Prague!!

Day 6, in Prague included Guided tours of Estates Theatre and the dinner boat cruise on the Vltava River.  Off to bed as it is a very early wake up call.

An email message was sent home which included information of the new hotel the tour will be staying at while overnight in Brno, Czech Republic – Hotel Termal Musov Brno  http://www.hoteltermal.cz/en

This was on account that a fire in Brno affected the water supply at the original hotel, so arrangements have been made for the tour to stay elsewhere.

Won’t be long before they’re back, each with their own tales and perspectives…
