Prague’s Fairytale Rooftops~

Prague, the magical fairyland……
DSC06221
The rooftops fascinate!

This is where the fairies come to dance, in this magical fairytale city.

All of Prague is like a fairyland and when you are here you are sure the fairies are too.

Who else were these rooftops built for?

We of course can enjoy them, but only the fairies can dance up there!

Feeling a bit nostalgic for Prague and I thought you might enjoy some images too!

Okay….. so this isn’t exactly a roof, it’s a ceiling, but I included it because in Prague the things under the roof are just as beautiful as the things on the roof!
Cheers to you from incomparable Prague~

A Parrot in Prague, A Twizy in Rome, What the Heck is this? Unliking My Likes….(And Other Misc Items…)

Okay, okay. It’s a macaw in Prague but that doesn’t rhyme.

It’s a Twizy
A cute little Twizy,
Open the door
Drive it off
Oh,
and don’t forget your mom!

(Some of you may be able to prompt your senior cerebellums to recall the Polaroid Swinger jingle? This was my first camera and I still have one shot to prove it. I was about 8 or 9…. The rest of you will have to google this archaic artifact of photographic lore…. See if you can find the jingle. It was awesome…..)

Anyhoo, multi-tasking in Rome. This woman can talk on the phone, open her car door, put her mom in the back seat, talk to me in Italian about her car, and drive off, ALL AT ONCE!
Wow!
I consider myself quite the multi-tasker. But this woman has clearly put me to shame.
And why, for heaven’s sakes, did wordpress print this in red?

Have you ever driven in Rome? I would require medication, even without the multi-tasking.
But, when in Rome…

Are you looking at me?

And finally, does wordpress ever unlike your likes? It does this to me sometimes and it is quite frustrating. I set aside time to read your posts and if I like the post, I indicate it. I go back later and see sometimes that my likes have not recorded. Quite concerning because I want you to know when I like your posts. Has this happened to you?
I guess I have to talk to one of those “Happiness Engineers” at wordpress…..
Cheers & happy weekend.

A Reluctant Adieu: Sad Parting From Prague!

And the Prague Gargoyles.

I am no expert but I suspect the purpose of all the gargoyles on the exterior of old churches in europe was to clarify how the sanctity of the church would save you from such awful creatures. Your choice was either the church or these guys.
DSC06582
But the gargoyles give an inaccurate perception of Prague. It addressed evil which is important, but is a city devoted to beauty and benevolence.

I am sad to leave Prague, and its friendly people.
Ahoj for the last time from Prague.
