Zizkov neighbourhood tour


Yesterday I was wondering which walking tour I would do, and as luck would have it, there was a tour coming to my door, so I did that and here is what happened.









Church hill








The next photo is of a beer garden in Zizkov, there  were three classes, Class 1 to Class 4, well this place prided itself on being a class 4 bar, the worst of the worst.

Now its quite trendy to go there, they have concerts, craft beers... and maybe real estate people?

Class four bar

Vltava, music that was inspired by a lot of water outside a window?

I went on a bit of a stroll the other day and this is what happened

TV tower, AKA Eiffel tower


The Prague Eiffel tower is on a hill, including the hill, it is bigger than the Eiffel tower in Paris, I pointed out there is another little Eiffel tower in Las Vegas, welcome to the eastern European way of thinking

The other TV tower, built in communist times, it blocks the TV signals for the people that live near it and its built in a Jewish cemetery, which proves communism is all about living, right?

Faceless babies like to climb







John Lennon wall

Killing time... on a boat cruise







Music that was inspired by this location


Ice cream and beer anyone?


I looked it up on YouTube. here it is...

Black Sabbath. Everyone loved this gig, Brilliant!!!!!

I was looking for Vivaldi tickets and saw Black Sabbath were playing the next night, at the gig I met one old guy that got his ticket last November. When I was in Helsinki, Finland, I remember someone telling me the Helsinki gig was sold out.

It appears Black Sabbath every couple of years decide to hang up the gloves and then they do another tour.
So i saw a lot of Sabbath t-shirts floating around yesterday, I stopped one guy on my 30.5km stroll around the city, and found out it was on at 8pm.

Interesting, I posted two postcards, had to walk a bit to find a post box, saw a tourist information, so I asked the guy working where I could buy tickets, he said where i could buy tickets.

He said, I can sell you a ticket, so it was a done deal!!!! I didn't think i would enjoy Sabbath as much as I did, but I did really like their first three albums, so for 52 euros, i and 18 thousand hardcore fans had one of best nights of their lives. Epic, what a night!!!!!

Going in the gate... feels strange


Its the start, Go Crazy!!!!




Louder!!!

Karpacz, whats on your mind, Sudden Enlightenment?

A while ago, i came to the realization i need to stop using Facebook and be in the moment, five days ago after a great time listening to music in the caravan in Jelina Gora, Poland, i decided to quit beer and focus on swimming and getting fit.

I remember 17 years ago, when I was in South East Asia, I stopped drinking for three months and lost tons of weight, got fit, looked good and got down to 75 kilos.

So the coming months, I want to do a repeat of this effort

It was a sort of enlightenment as described by Alan Watts

And I had this going through my mind a few days before
