One Month: Nuts and Bolts and Entertainment

We have been in our new Prague apartment for four weeks now and I have been negligent in posting, as usual.  We have been on the go a lot but mostly to uninteresting places to shop for our apartment or ourselves.

Yet, Prague being such an interesting city we have been out to some entertainment, including–and certainly not limited to– the European Film Festival, concert by Italian Choir at the Music Museum (free!) and English language theater.  We highly recommend The Prague Playhouse production of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie.  It is the best play we have been to in years.

Our first major outing was to Alfons Mucha’s The Slave Epic.  But you will have to wait for Karin’s update to read about that.  However, if you are in Prague, don’t wait to go; it is a unique lifetime experience.

Here is an excerpt from my Greek island blog that I intend to put in the side bar here:

“I recommend this book for the same reason that I publish personalized travel guides:  not so the reader can repeat the same journey, rather to serve as a stimulus to choose your own course and pursue it with confidence you can leap over, or at least get around, the inevitable hurdles.”

The book I am referring to is One Year Lived by Adam Shepard.  In it a young man tells about his incredibly full and rewarding year travelling around the world.  Read more about the book on that blog or I will send you a free copy (PDF) if you comment on this post telling me why you would like to read the book.  Be sure your email address is included.
