Eastern Europe trip: part 6
athlete, rrrrrrrafa, kinesiology
Once we were across the Charles Bridge, we went up to the castle, just to wander the grounds instead of do the whole extensive tour. Along the way we saw some amazing things:

We crashed and spent the next day - our last - sticking fairly close to the hotel. My parents and I went to Wenceslas Square, and along the way stopped at Lucerna Palace to see the famous sculpture before moving on to the square itself:

On the square (sort of) was the Museum of Communism, which was basically a fic writer's treasure-trove. I want to write all of the Steve/Bucky based on some of this stuff:

That did it for my mom, who was worn out, so we dropped her at the hotel with my brother, and my dad and I went to check out the "Dancing Building," aka "Fred and Ginger": (Ginger has a couple of whales under her skirt for reasons that elude me.) While there, I dodged a very pretty and very friendly TV reporter looking to interview someone ON-CAMERA in English. Turn the camera off and I'll talk all day, lady, but she needed the tape for something or the other, so no dice. On our way back, I saw Pythagoras figuring out how he would eat a Reese's, and then imagined the face you all must be wearing now:

We went out to the local Irish pub as the best place to watch the UEFA Champions League match in a smoke-free environment, did it, got up at 3 am, and flew home.

And I'm DONE! No more travel, no more pictures EVER . . . until November.

Great set of pics - thank you for sharing them.

Sorry you all got ill, but you certainly seem to have seen plenty on your trip.

We had a great trip for the most part - I was the only one who was continually ill, and I knew how much I could do (because when was I coming back to this part of the world? never, most likely). Thanks!

OMGOMG. Did you go into the Mucha museum?
*flails about*


Gorgeous pictures, bb - looks like an amazing trip!

I SO wanted to, but no one else did, everyone was tired, and it ended up being more trouble than I could justify. I really like his stuff, too. Glad you liked the pics!

Agreed - maybe I should get myself a print, just as a reward?

I hope you're all fully recovered now!

Thanks for sharing the photos—I really enjoyed them.

Almost there, hopefully! Thanks!

Loved the pics! The trip looked awesome!

Awesome batch of photos. The magnitude of history is so amazing, good and bad. Thanks for sharing your photos! I hope you are feeling better now.

I just got back from Alaska with the hubs yesterday and we're back to work tomorrow. I so don't want to go back to real life. No idea when I'm going to post pix either. I shaved the first 1000+ down to about 600+ and have about another 100 still in the camera to look at. I thought I'd get started reviewing them all today but never got around to it. Things like laundry, banking (in person and on line), grocery shopping and replies to emails and story reviews (and spending an hour looking at work emails) got in the way. Hopefully I can tackle Day 1 of the trip tomorrow.

I barely paid attention to Roland Garros this year. Probably a good thing with life being so busy these days. I likely will force myself to ignore much of Wimbledon this year... Unless Rafa goes deep.

Thanks for sharing such fascinating and gorgeous pictures!

I'm glad you liked the pics! I hope you get to share yours soon - my mom keeps trying to get me to go to Alaska with her.

I watched a little of the French this year - it was absolutely painful to see Rafa pushed around the court by Djokovic. And then he won in Stuttgart and lost in the first round at Queen's. I don't know what's happening any more. I really want him to do well at Wimbledon and the US Open.
