At an international faculty party, in which I was probably the least traveled of the bunch, we got to talking about where we were going on our long weekends. I teach on Mondays and Wednesdays at CBS so I usually have four days off in a row to explore. In the past I’ve gone primarily to Norway and Sweden. I mentioned that I was undecided and asked for their feedback. I was debating between Estonia, several places in Germany, or Finland. Someone asked, “You’ve been to Prague, right?” When I said “no” they all universally agreed that Prague should be tops on my list. So here I am.
Tonight is my last night in Prague. What a place! Were it not for the ridiculous number of tourists and selfie sticks, this place would be near perfect.
