photo used under creative commons license tourists flock to prague lured by images such
as the one on the left, but what they often get
is the shuffle and sway of a tourist bottleneck.
i had never seen charles bridge (karluv most)
quite this crowded and would have avoided it
except it's usually a pretty convenient way to
cross the river and sean had never seen it. it
took us 15 minutes or more to worm our way
through the herd. the crowd was so oppressive
i couldn't help but laugh: "i'm so happy we can
all be here together!" i said and really meant it.
