The City of Crystals

design patterns

My mother and I ventured out on a mother-daughter European trip this summer, making our first stop in Prague, Czech Republic then touring Germany and the Netherlands.  I had heard of magical things about Prague and had to know what all the hype was about.  Well, let me be the one to tell you, this isn’t a city you can miss out on.  This is the one city in Europe that Hitler wouldn’t allowed to be bombed, if that tells you anything.  It is one of the few places where you can see pre-war architecture at its finest.  The people, the culture, the beer, the food, the castle, the intricate cobblestone streets and the mesmerizing views from the Vltave River are straight from the history books, only much, much better...

Prague is know for its crystal. Above is what seems to be a stained-glass window,
but it is made of crystals

Oh dear God... what a beautiful place! I will visit Prague soon, maybe in June, I've been saving money for that trip, specially through the sidewalk. I want to know about the culture and their beer.
