The Final Day by Brett Barnard

Well… here are. We have reached the final full day of the inaugural La Lu Prague Trip. Today’s adventures were few, but all immense in stature and depth. We started off today travelling to a former fortress named Vysehrad. However, this fortress itself was notable as it was both the storage place for the ORIGINAL statues from the Charles Bridge and… vegetables (during the communist regime that is). The most interesting item present in this area however was a wide variety of modern art, which was present as part of an annual exhibition.

Soon afterwards, we took the time to visit a nearby graveyard and pay our respects to many notable Czech patrons of the arts. While there were many buried there, one name will always stand out to me. That name is as follows: Karl Capek. For those of you who don’t know, Karel Capek was a Czech science fiction author whose work saw the first mention of the word “ROBOT” (which itself is a derivative of the Czech word for “serf”). After a lunch at Marks and Spencer’s, and a brief bout of souveneir shopping, it was back to the hotel for a quick nap and preparation for our final evening meal in Prague.

I don’t know what else I can say. This trip has been amazing. Without doubt, one of the best I’ve been on in my entire life! In conclusion, I say this: Thank You Prague! Thank you for the warm welcome you’ve given us, thank you for showing us all that there is to see, and finally, thank you for providing us with an experience that we will carry with us for the rest of our lives, even after we’ve returned home to the United States!

Nashledanou!
