Saying Goodbye or…until we meet again

My assignment in Prague was supposed to have lasted 8 months. Fortunately, I ended up staying for almost one year and everyday was full of new discoveries. On my last day in Prague, I visited the city’s historical Old Town, its winding streets and alleys. I continued my trajectory by crossing Charles Bridge while following the ascending path and passing historical churches, manors and manifold dwellings.

As the evening approached a light snow mixed with drizzle began to fall. Endearingly, the last light of the day projected its fainting brightness on the buildings and it felt like a brothers’ Grimm fairytale. Certainly, the architecture mingled with a buoyant fog created a favorable atmosphere where such thoughts blossom… and yes, how blessed I have been to experience this place. Unquestionably, I will miss it!
