Greenland has alluded us again today. Air Iceland was unable to arrange for another plane to take us to Ilulissat today. The tease from yesterday of the brief landing in Kulusuk to refuel after we were unable to land in Ilulissat seems a distant past. The good news is we were able to get seats on a scheduled flight for tomorrow and now I'm crossing my fingers that we are going to be able to take off and land ok. Its not that I don't like Reykjavik, its just that every time we get our minds set on the fact that we are moving on to a new location, we get disappointed and have to re-live the day before.
After an easy flight through London Heathrow, Steph and I arrived in Prague yesterday to beautiful weather. We spent the afternoon walking across the Charles Bridge taking in views of the Vltava River followed by hike up to Prague Castle to enjoy the courtyards and views. We especially liked the twisted and gruesome faces of the gargoyles on St. Vitus Cathedral.
To end the day, we enjoyed a delicious two-course dinner at V Zatisi (http://www.vzatisi.cz/). Steph and I enjoyed kulajda soup, tiger prawns, crispy duck with red cabbage and a roasted lamb shank with a tasty cucumber rayta sauce. The local paired wines complimented the dishes perfectly and after eating ourselves to exhaustion, went back to our apartment for a night of rest.
