Our First Night on Our Second Visit to Prague
Jet lag couldn't drag us away. Our first night on our second visit to Prague. Rose and I wanted to test the weather. It didn't seem too bad. Little that we know that the next day would be so much different.
The poster was close to our hotel. It was propped up on the glass cage where people wait for their bus. Sorry but I forgot what it's called. I think it's called a bus stop? There were a few convenient stores, beer pubs and a shopping mall in the area. Nice. Bought some necessities. A bottle of wine and drinking water. Very necessary.
I didn't know much about Emil Filla. I googled him and found out that he was an early 20th century Czech painter. A leader of the avant-garde in Prague. He is considered one of the early cubists. He idolized Vincent Van Gogh, Edvard Munch as well as Picasso. Obviously, he had a great eye for fine works of art because I like these artists too. Would have wanted to see his work but we only had a few days in Prague.
