In Prague, we met up with Anna, whom we met in Sarajevo. Anna is from the States and is teaching English in Prague. She was very kind to let us hang with her and her friends, plus she took us on a short train ride for an afternoon at the brewery in Beroun.
We’re not always very good of remembering to take pictures of the people we’re with, so here’s Anna petting a puppy in Sarajevo:
Anyway, back to the brewery. Apparently if you end up in a scrap yard and think you’ve taken a wrong turn, then you’re almost there. Maybe that’s a metaphor for life.
After enjoying a refreshing pint of birthday pivo (it was Tony’s birthday) and some meaty Czech food, we went back outside to explore the scrap yard a bit.
Here’s an old Trabant, an East German car made out of plastic.
Just a tank. No biggie.
And an old Skoda truck.
We picked apples from a tree down the street. They were crisp and perfect.
On the way back to Prague, we hopped off the train at Karlstejn to check out the castle.
It was a wonderful fall day. Crisp air with wood smoke in the breeze, changing leaves, a castle, a train ride, a cozy brewery, and time with friends.
Thanks Anna! (Go read Anna’s blog, Two Wheels Good, about her cycling adventures in Prague.)
