We had a day to kill in Prague waiting for a late night flight, so we made our way down to the old part of town and started wandering through old castles and stuff. We ambled into a cathedral and as we did the mandatory walk through, I stopped at one of the stained glass windows and was totally enthralled by it. Stained glass windows are usually not even on my radar screen, but this was the coolest one I had ever seen.
It turns out that it was done by Alphonse Mucha who did the really cool Art Nouveau stuff we are all probably familiar with. After I got home I discovered there is also a gallery of his work in Prague I could have visited. Rats! I would have loved to have gone there.
That’s what I get for sleeping through art history classes in college instead of paying attention.
