To go along with my catchup post...

This won't be my usual article form. Sorry. No time to sit and reflect and collect my thoughts.
We embark on our bus ride to the Czech countryside and mountains tomorrow. Tomorrow night at a mountain hotel...lord knows where it is. I'm SURE no internet access.
Prague has been a gas. Love Prague. It's an eyegasim. Everywhere you look there are things that delight the eye and make me whip out my camera.
On the pictures I posted to the gallery. I HOPE they are the good ones. I take scads of the same picture using different settings and the upload utility has tiny thumbnails AND I haven't had time to organize my photos AT ALL. So I was guessing as to which were the good ones from a stamp size image. You'll see 2 theaters. The blue one is a theater that Mozart debuted Don Gianvoni (I think I spelled that wrong) we saw Marriage of Figaro in it...stunningly beautiful. Some Amadeus scenes were filmed in it. The second is the National Theater. Interesting history. Later. Saw a modern dance show there. Very very good and the space is also breathtaking.
You'll also see various shots of St Nicholas (both of them) and Troja Palace (a red and white building) then the obligatory tourist sights.
I'm getting used to my new camera but it sometimes pulls a fast one on me with regard to focus...so I'm hoping these are sharp.
As I mentioned we have many long bus rides ahead so I'll pen some thoughts.
