I would like to share my last trip to this beautiful city with you. I stayed in this fabulous hotel where everything but the view to the river was red (my favorite color)
these exquisite chandeliers are the pride and joy of the Czech Republic.
this is the view from my room:
and this one
First the sun was shining,
then it was raining like hell,
and then this amazing double rainbow; talking about a room with a view…
Prague is a city of posters,
and the capital of caryatids! Paris will never get close to these gorgeous men and women.
these two weren’t talking to each other:
but these two were – for an eternity.
I woke up at 6 in the morning and took the tramway to Charles bridge – the only time in the day that it’s a bit quiet. Cities are majestic in the morning blue hour.
The astronomical clock is the main tourist attraction.
Speaking of Kafka, he’s omnipresent:
and here and everywhere…
Beautiful city/people/pastries/absinthe (I brought some mean ones back to L.A.)
All and all, the Czech republic has shown gargantuan progress in a few years since the fall of communism – if only it stayed as inexpensive as the first time I visited…
