The glorious thing about visiting Prague was seeing all the art, be it professional sculptures with bold anticommunist statements, or buildings with spray-painted tattoos along their stone walls.
I was between teaching contracts in Korea and it was nice to be out of Asia, even if it was winter in the Czech Republic. I stayed with some friends who were also living abroad and teaching English. After we’d celebrated New Years Eve together, they had to return to work. They gave me some suggestions on places to go, a city map, and a key to their house. I was free to explore.
