My Journey: New Years 2004
I travelled to the Capital city of Prague during the winter after my study abroad in London, England.  Prague was one of the
few medieval cities that was not bombed out during WWII.  Even today, when movie directors want to make a movie about medieval Paris or Munich, they actually shoot the film in Prague.  I was thrilled to be there for the New Years Celebrations and saw a dazzling display of fireworks as the entire city erupted in fiery colors and explosions.  Another highlight was attending a Christmas concert in the actual church built by the actual King Wenceslas.
