This is a gallery of some images that I made in Prague this July. I will make some of these images a full post.
It’s hard to read the minds/hearts of strangers, but this bench-warmer in Wenceslas Square in Prague seemed very happy. He had a smile on his face, and I think I heard him humming a song.
Visitors to the Plaka and Monastiraki area of Athens will recognize this plaza, taken from a rooftop restaurant nearby. Shops, restaurants, and open-air entertainment are the common fare here.
The last night of the semester brings a special event to HUG — the final banquet, dressed in Toga. I know — Togas are Roman, not Greek. But I’m sure the Romans stole it from the Greeks, somehow. At the end of the evening comes the final splash in the HUG pool.
Toga night — with a final splash in the pool, brings a variety of attractions. A frozen second of time confirms just how water comes off of long hair. I don’t have this problem.
This was made from a 7-story building rooftop and views the northeast corner of the Athens Acropolis with the Erechtheion in the foreground, Parthenon in the rear. The green area to the right is “Mars Hill” — the Areopagos — perhaps the site of Paul’s address in Acts 17.
The setting sun on this belfry of a Greek Orthodox church in downtown Athens (between the Plaka and Omonia) reveals several architectural and religious themes. One that is fairly common is the use of octagon structures very often. Another transcendent item is the use of domes in this common shape.
