We also have figured out the whole electrical thing- adapters, converters, etc. Laptops and camera battery chargers need only an adapter to fit their European wall outlets. Anything else like a curling iron or straightener needs a converter as well to convert our 110 voltage to their 220. We had a few anxious moments when we couldn't get my laptop plug into the adapter but finally got it - just a tight fit! Whew! And we just discovered her straightener will not work at all... not sure why...
So all in all we are doing well. It is now Sunday morning. Laura has gone off to do her first interview for her assignment, and I will meet up with her later at the Jewish Quarter where we'll spend the afternoon. Then she registers for her course tonight,

There are so many beautiful churches and cathedrals here (many now used only for musical concerts) yet the majority of the country is now atheist. Of course their years under the Communists was a big factor. It will be interesting to see how she makes out, getting info...
I'm off now to Old Town to explore a bit on my own and meet up with her in a while. Oh, yes, it's sunny and hot again today.
