Nothing Was As It Appeared

I have a split personality when it comes to Prague. On one hand, I want to tell everyone how wonderful it is and I feel somehow personally responsible for the way that it is protrayed. On the other hand, I would like to add to the fears about it being overcrowded, unsafe, and boring because I DON'T want other people visiting. I'd like to keep it to myself and the select others that are also as enchanted with it as I am.

But the truth is, it is truly a wonderful place to be. Yes, there are more and more tourists everyday and there are times when it feels like you hear more English than Czech being spoken. And yes, the prices are rising and will continue to do so after they go Euro. But man, what a city. If you get off the beaten path and tourists tracks and evenjust wander down the alleys and streets you'll find parts of it untouched. As my mother says, it's the kind of city where you wouldn't be surprised to see a man walk out of the mist in a large top hat and long coat-and wouldn't be surprised if he was Jack the Ripper. A magical, mystical place.

    Great insights on this most lovely city. I had the opposite experience with a taxi driver but still loved everything about Prague.

    Fine texts on your three travelogues! I also once wrote a story about Prague. It was about my 30th birthday and was called The Ten Thousand Nine Hundred and Fifty-Ninth Day. (Which it really wasn't, but of course I didn't have a computer at the time.)
