Czeck it out!

Warning: No funny here. Business only. Party later.

Yesterday, I was over the pond using money with complicated exchange rates and creepy photos, eating chocolate spread on croissants, and taking a boat ride on Zurich Lake. Today, I'm eating frosted mini-wheats and sorting through a work inbox bursting at the seams. Without pain, we can't experience joy, right? Obviously, I took hundreds of photos. I'm taking some time today to compile and organize and decide which stories to tell or what kind of lists to make. In the meantime, I thought I'd pass along this gem I took on the failed attempt at attending church:

And this is another quick win to show you. When visitors come to Boston*, they love seeing the cobblestone streets. Folks, you want to see cobblestones, you head to Prague. I can hardly think of a single place we walked in the city that didn't have cobblestones--and these stones were probably an inch by inch square (tiny!). The patterns were different all over the city and a challenge to navigate in thin sandals, but well worth the view!

* I'm wondering if Boston was once a Communist country if we'd have prettier streets. FDR put the CCC to work building roads after the Great Depression, did Czechoslovakia "employ" a workforce to build its streets? Surely it did.

I'll be posting more in the coming days of the wonderful weekend you can have in Prague and Switzerland in four short days. I hope you all had a great Memorial Day!

I'm willing to bet that you already had in your mind that photo collage of the cobblestones, and that's why you took those pics. And that's what makes you so amazing. Wish I could have been there!

It's true. Once I started seeing the variations, and knowing my love of photo collages, it seemed like a no brainer!

Wow. Oh wow. I do love mosaic streets (rugs, in the case of Pompeii - remember that collage? It pales in comparison to yours.) That first photo is breathtaking. Can't wait to hear all about it!

Definitely, maybe, probaby related posts:

If NatA! posted a photo with this blog, here it is!
