We left Southern Germany yesterday, took the train from Lauingen, a small town on the Donau river to Nuremburg. From there we transferred to a bus and drove to the beautiful Prague. It was 37 degrees. Got to our hotel which is ancient as in built in 1383. There were no ghosts that we detected. Today it is raining and for selfish reasons I hope it lets up as our intention is to do a river trip and meal this evening. Because this place is so old there are no lifts so we had to climb 4 flights of stairs with luggage, lucky for us a kind and strapping young Czech man carried our largest case up with ease. I am so glad Of our 2 day fasts up till now as the last flight is a spiral stair case. My legs ached before this, they're feeling a bit better after a bath and massage. I did tai chi in the weekend and paid for it. Funny how the archilles tendon didn't play up and pain travelled to the calf. Today it feels alright. We asked to be moved and another room was found one floor down from us. I loved Germany, spent the last 4 days in Lauingen with my cousin who for the past 20 years has been running shamanic workshops over here one of the things she focused on was healing the family tree. She is staying put in the same town as what we've moved to now and is hoping to have me help out. After this we will be taking good care of ourselves. A big lesson is learning to love ourselves not out of superficial vanity but for our survival in body, mind and spirit and doing for ourselves will help our family. We asked to change rooms today and we've been offered a room on the 3rd floor at least we won't have to climb the spiral stair case. As a child I would have loved all that. Seeing the forest as we drove here reminded me of all the childhood stories such as Hansel and Gretel and the three bears. Anyway I'm about to go on a mission up to the 4th floor grrr.
