Several human figures were grouped through a busy street in Prague; the figures are by Czech artist Olbram Zoubek (as I later found out online). I loved the comical poses on these figures, and many other tourists were getting silly photographs with the figures. I enjoyed seeing people interact with these.

In my last post, I mentioned visiting Prague during the Easter Markets. Here are some photographs taken of Easter in Prague.
I took a trip to Prague, in the Czech Republic, over the Easter holiday. In brief, Prague has amazing architecture. There's the Astronomical Clock tower in the Old Town square, Charles Bridge, St. Vitus' cathedral - just to name a few. The architecture is detailed and colourful - red-orange roofs and pastel coloured facades; there are also quite a few spires.
The main attraction of the trip was soaking up the festival atmosphere in the Easter Market in the city squares. I loved the brightly-coloured painted eggs with the spring motifs and the intricate designs. (Some of the shells were carved into their own designs; they look very fragile.) I saw eggs being painted, and there were many wooden market stalls selling crafts, gifts, food, and coloured eggs. Coloured eggs were also seen hanging from some of the trees in the square. Egg-painting is not celebrated in England, but it is in America; I am assuming that this concept introduced to America by eastern European ancestry.
Some photographs of my trip are posted below.
Spring has arrived in Bath with hundreds of beautiful yellow daffodils lining the park walkway. I took my camera out to get some photographs. I love daffodils, and they look even prettier next to the Bath stone.
