Art Tourism

Once again, I write about my travels and today it will be about Prague. I’m not a travel writer, so don’t expect me to educate you or have historical content. I took it all in as a visual artist, seeking the minute details of the artist’s hand whereever we went. I am traveling with my dear friend Beate, and we walked a great way, as well as learning a bit about the busses, trams, and metro. Here’s a peak at our start of the day. A very nice breakfast as part of the hotel’s accomodation. And a little fun making sculpture at the table.

Lots of choices of yummy foods

I just don’t have much time to write this morning, so I’m posting some of the photos and will head off into Prague for some more tourism. I have attempted to get this posted on the top of my blog, and will see how it shows up with this new way of posting the photos on the left side and then the text on the right. Let me know if you like this look better. I’m so new at all this that it’s taking me a while to work out the bugs.

Well enough said, I’ve got to get ready for another breakfast and maybe even some new sculptures.

    Brian–We are following you in your sojourn. I bought tatted lace doilies from a very elderly woman on the Charles Bridge when I visited Prague in about 1997-98 while teaching MBA finance classes for City U in Dresden and Halle, not so long after the Wall came down. We need to return to Prague, such a beautiful city… The best of luck in Paris. We’ll keep checking in on you. Linda & Tom

    Most of what I’ve been buying in Prague is food. Today we went to a wonderful spot called the Bakeshop two times, first for coffee and cakes, then for lunch. I will posts some pictures, and if you are ever in Prague this is a must.

    Brian, What a great opportunity. Thanks for sharing. Let me know if you hear of other group traveling programs. It’s been a few years since I last visited Camp Brotherhood. Group inspiration is the best
