Everything moves on… even the Lennon Wall. https://news.expats.cz/weekly-czech-news/pragues-john-lennon-wall-opens-with-new-murals-and-new-rules/
I’m quite sure this picture has appeared on here before (something I usually try to avoid in these Sunday posts), but this time it’s well worth it. Ten years on, this is something that sticks out about my time in Prague. To take a trip back to time to another trip back in time, click here.
Apparently it’s been seven years since I went back to Prague for House Hunters. Time flies.
I do miss the creative signs outside many shops in Prague. They exist here too, but none have quite this combo of fun.
This building looks like it belongs in a Wes Anderson movie. Someone tell him to get on that please.
BV and I were searching for a beer on the Malá Strana side of the river last year in Prague, when we stumbled upon this place. Just at the Újezd tram stop, and down through a passage that had been home to a produce market (with extras, like most Praha produce markets), was now a huge courtyard beer garden. I don’t know how long it had been open at this point, but it was nearly empty. That seemed rather odd, given the size, and given the fact that the menu was full of unusual beers*, but maybe the kids were all hanging out somewhere else that day? If you’re in Prague, check it out and let me know what’s going on…
*Unusual to us, anyway. The market has expanded a TON since I was there and we were all Gambrinus, all the time.
I’m definitely one of those people who enjoys a good bit of lens flare, even if does obscure one of my favorite views in the world. This little square was always a good one to wander through on a rambling spring walk in Praha.
Looking back through pictures to put this post together, I find myself conflicted. You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who found 2017 to be a good year, as far as the world goes. Politics, prejudice, and the tiny, trigger-happy, tweeting fingers of the person currently running my home country made for a news cycle that was unrelentingly horrible.
There was a lot of good here in 2017. Work was super busy for me, which is excellent, and in between riding trains all over town, we fit in a lot of activities. We visited friends, friends visited us. Time was spent on creative projects around the house, long walks through the countryside, and of course, a decent bit of traveling. So while the world seemed in chaos, it’s hard for me to say that 2017 was a bad year in our little corner of Franconia.
Where to begin? I guess in January…
A little water on the camera lens doesn’t bother me too much in this case. Fuzzy pictures match my warm and fuzzy memories of the Christmas I spent in Prague. It was unconventional, in the best possible way.
Hope that everyone reading this has a wonderful holiday… wherever in the world you may be.
When visiting European castles, one doesn’t necessarily expect to see the king’s underthings hanging out to dry.
Unless of course, the castle includes an area that is set up as a stage for theatrical productions… in which case, all bets are off.
