From Berlin, I got into a small van with 6 other berliners to head for Prague.? On the way there we got a flat tire.? Some of the boys pumped some white stuff into the tire so that we could make it to Prague.? We were trying to make it to the inauguration of a new statue of Sri Chinmoy on the banks of the river.

We had left Berlin a little late and with the tire, we in fact missed the said inauguration but we did see the fantastic statue by London artist Kaivalya Torpy.? We did get a 2 hour boat cruise to eat and see Prague by night, though.? Very cool.? I guess it’s like a Paddlewheel Queen ride on the Red River back home in Winnipeg.? Although, I have to admit, it seems so much less cool to me.

I wonder if someone from Prague would think that a boat trip in Winnipeg would be as charming I thought Prague was.? Of course your sights in Wpg were built between 1910 and 1980 or something like that while Prague was built, I don’t know, sometime around when Christopher Colombus landed in North America.
