When in Prague

Last month I headed to Prague for a long weekend. Other than hearing that Prague is a beautiful city, which it is, I went with no expectations and no plan other than to enjoy the sights. Here’s a small sampling.

The most delightful part of my trip was the break from the relentless 30C degree plus weather that we’d been suffering at home for nearly 2 months. Prague’s 15-17C daytime temperatures were really welcome; the drop to single digit night time temps, not so much.

So it goes

derailed-featured-IMG_7120Like a coin on a railroad track, Life has a funny way of jumping up and derailing our best intentions. My focus at the moment is about 4,500 kilometers from me. I’ll continue to post Photo101’s when and if I have available time. See you when I do. Thanks for stopping by. (As a real aside, apparently Google Maps lives in an alternate reality where I can simply get on the highway and drive for 50 hours from where I am to where I need to be, barring geopolitical conflicts and all. )

This snapshot was taken on the morning of our last day in Amsterdam. My daughter, who I had not seen for a few months, and I were on our way to have breakfast before heading to the new wing of the Rijksmuseum. For me the shadow play was too hard to resist.

After meeting my daughter in Amsterdam for 5 days (the reason I disappeared from Blogging201), I returned home early this morning to a suddenly wintery Israel. Our plane landed in near darkness at 5 a.m. and this was the scene that greeted me as I left the terminal.
