Wholly smoke!


Hong Kong airport, 5pm last Friday.

Surreal lighting, sunlight through smog.

No wonder Chinese people are amazed at the colour of the sky when they come to Melbourne.

Yes, it is meant to be blue.

A Taste of Prague

A beautiful city, this is just a taste of what we saw and did.

I knew Alphonse Mucha (pronounced 'moo-car') did art nouveau posters, this is a section of a church window in St Vitus Church.

Lots of Trams.

Um...some cafe.

For some reason, St George has a big following in Prague. Lots of statues to him. Certainly seems to have wiped out all the dragons.

Segway tourism.

St Vitus Church.

Lots of Art Nouveau decor about the place.

The astronomical clock - very pretty but couldn't figure out how to tell the time on it.

Lots of shops selling puppets.

Spit roast ham in one of the main squares.

Another doorway.

Bridges on the River Vltava.

Off again...


Off travelling tomorrow. Only for about a week and a half this time.

Nephew's wedding in London and then home via Prague. We have heard good things about Prague - Martin & Roni and Simon have been there - but, always the scientist, I felt the need to test the experiment for reproducibility.

I'll let you know how we go.
