So back to our regular programing for a second…the second installment of my photos from Europe. This time, Prague.
So I got to Prague by plane from Brussels. Getting off the plane and onto the bus, I met 5 really nice guys from New york. We spent most of my time in Prague drinking, with me dragging along anyone I could find from the hostel.
I wasn’t prepared for how beautiful Prague was. Simply put, no one told me.
1. The John Lennon Wall. Still not sure why John Lennon has a wall here, and it’s just graffiti, scribbles and things from local youths. At least they are being political and optimistic with their graffiti. Good on ’em.
2. The view of the Vltava river from St Charles Bridge. I had a beautiful moment just standing there looking at the world one afternoon.
3. The somewhat Back To the Future Part 3-esque Astronomical Clock at the Old Square.
4. Steps leading up to Prague Castle
5. St Vitus Catherdal, within the castle walls
6. The Prague Castle itself, but at night, looking over the main city. So beautiful I cannot describe. This photo does it no justice.
More drinking buddies. Above, Brian and Adam. Below, Batman and the Joker.
I was already completely in love with this city when I stumbled onto this at the Old Town Square. A bunch of beautiful women doing a marching baton dance. To an instrumetal version of my favourite musical ever – My Fair Lady. I was clapping and hooting like a maniac with just pure joy, as the sun shone and the military band played: I’m Getting Married In the Morning, With A Little Bit Of Luck and I Could Have Danced All Night.
An artist greatly under-appreciated in his own time, and a statue of Frank Kafka.
Finally, my fave thing in Prague. The Dancing House by Frank Gehry. From the other angle, it looks like Fred Astaire holding Ginger Rogers as her skirt spins in a dance. It’s awesome.
I took so many more photos, these are but the highlights. More on Flickr. But even a billion photos cannot describe how much I loved every second in Prague. I can’t wait to go again.
