Here is Emma beheading Holly ontop of 27 white crosses in Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí) on Friday, which represents the spot where 27 Protestant nobles, merchants and intellectuals were beheaded in 1621 after rebelling against the Catholic Hapsburgs ending Czech independents for 300 years. Does this mean we're douchebags? Probably.
Saturday, I finally got around to the Lennon Wall thanks to Emma and Holly's touristy motivation. I also finally got to Cross Club, which was crazy and awesome. Story behind this picture...until independence came in 1989, travelers, freedom-lovers and local hippies gathered here. After John Lennon was killed in 1980, this wall was spontaneously covered with memorial graffiti. During Communist times, the police would paint over it every night, but miraculously, every day, the graffiti would reappear. Thus, this wall is remembered as a refuge of sorts for locals craving freedom during this time. Here I am "Imagining" (apparently I wear this shirt in every picture I post here, oops)...
Emma, Andrea and I watching the sunset! Holly was sleeping because she caught a cold/hangover. ;-)
That's all for now. Maybe I'll actually talk about my life soon. Mostly, my job converted me to part-time by taking away my preschoolers and giving them to someone with kid-experience (about 10 of my scheduled teaching hours). While I'm upset I need to find more hours somewhere, I'm sort of relieved. I really don't know anything about children that young. I still have some other classes though and the visa process is beginning, so it's not so bad.
