If, like me, you like looking up at the little details on buildings,* then Prague is a fantastic city.

We spent the morning ambling around Prague, guided by Miffy and an over-caffienated youth named Karel.
|Tour Guide Miffy|
|Tour Guide Karel, explaining how the importance of keys during the Velvet Revolution|
|Probably the best bit of the otherwise over-hyped Famous Prague Clock|
|Actually a synagogue, despite looking like a mosque (built with funds from an Islamic charity).|
|Note the lower clock is in Hebrew, and so the hands are backwards|
|There was much callipygian statuary|
|Standard Charles Bridge tourist shot|
|Apparently the opera Don Giovanni (which this statue commemorates) features Dementors. Or Nazgul. I forget which.|
Having done that, we headed for the rather superb Beer Museum Pub ("30 Beers on tap!"), before a reviving meal of dumplings followed by a less-reviving bottle of Becherovka.
*For instance, a very posh restaurant in Bishopsgate sports a jaunty gold beaver weathervane, because it used to be the Hudson Bay Company's London offices. Not many people notice it.
