More heat and another train journey

Another hot day! 31C in Prague today. I’m sure that sounds good to those reading this back in Canberra where the temps have been getting down to -5C but it’s uncomfortably hot when catching trains, walking through the streets with luggage and getting out to see the sights. The air conditioned hotel room is very inviting.
After breakfast we went to the supermarket to buy some snacks for the train, packed up and headed to the train station for our 11.07am train to Prague. It was difficult to find the right carriage and get to our reserved seats – there was already people (without reserved seats) and luggage blocking the aisles. We eventually found our seats and like yesterday a young man offered to lift my suitcase onto the overhead rack – I must look like a weak old lady!
We arrived in Prague at 1.25pm and Jean did a great job of leading us through the winding streets to our hotel, where we took some time to rest and cool down. Time to explore: we went to the Powder Tower and, after a few wrong turns, Henry’s Tower. We’d missed lunch so found a café and ate around 5.30. We walked to the crowded Old town Square to see the astronomical clock and the beautiful buildings. We had to head back to the hotel around 7.30pm because I started to feel unwell – maybe a combination of the heat, a bit of dehydration and the food I ate. I was feeling better by the time we got back to the hotel but I just needed to rest and drink some water.
Today’s Fitbit readings: 17,433 steps and 11.8kms.
