New Years 2004 In Prague
Well, there's nothing like
going to some place you don't know and with people you hardly know to
party on New Year's Eve ... all at the last minute.
Have to say I had great time
with Lenka and her flatmate in Dusan partying
in Prague ... right up to the moment I woke up with a massive hangover
from too much slivovitz and champagne.
Here's the pictures and the

slivovitz ... basically a home made plum brandy/moonshine combination that
cleans out your stomach, bowels and the carburettors of the hundreds of ancient Skodas
you see on the roads here.

Conscripts Having Fun On New Years Eve
After leaving home we went up to the castle and met a whole lot of very
unhappy conscripts guarding the castle on new years ever. They
didn't look exactly happy about it. I can't say I blame them.

good time freezing his arse off on guard duty on New Years Eve. The
only way I could get this smile on his face was by putting a finger up his
Just kidding ... really ...
there is no way I would put my finger up the arse of a heavy heavily armed
soldier. Or any random stranger's bum for that matter.

St Vitus Cathedral inside
Prague Castle. The pictures don't really do justice to the feeling
of looking at this majestic lit up cathedral while soft flakes of snow
fall gently down around you.

Years On The Bridge
After checking out the
castle, we decided to go to the main square to celebrate New Years.
We didn't make it and ended up having a great time with all sorts of
random people on Charles Bridge.
The crew just before New
Years ... well I think so ... my memory is not the best.
Lenka taking cover as Dusan
opens a bottle of champagne. We had finished the slivovitz by this
Dusan, Lenka and I drinking
champagne together ... and getting very very drunk.
Watch out for the rabbit.
"Is this yours and can I have some?"
"I'm not tired, I'm just trying to act sexy!"
Extremely random Czech people we met on the bridge. I ...
l-u-r-v-e ... this photo. It's an excellent random people shot.
The facial expressions and subjects are excellent.
Dusan and me getting very jolly.
You don't have to be drunk to have a lot of fun ... but it helps.
Or ... as I learnt from a Vietnamese boat captain during my time in the
'nam ... "no drunk ... no fun'. Funnily enough, I learnt this around
the same time the previous year when I was in Nha Trang for new year.
Me wrestling with random black eyed Czech dude.
"And then I threw up all over the place and hit a horse!"
Me, recounting how I got a blackeye once . Not true of course.
Well, not as events position together go.
Spanish In Prague
Linguistically, it was an
interesting night as both Lenka and Dusan spoke Spanish.
Consequently, we spent 50-60% of the night talking in Spanish, especially
as Lenka's English wasn't all that hot at times (but she is fluent in
French, Portuguese and Spanish). If we all got stuck with English,
we just switched to Spanish. It was actually the most Spanish I'd
spoken since I left Chile 3 or 4 months before.
We didn't met any Spanish
speakers on the night although we did meet and converse in Spanish with
lots of Italians ... all in Prague to chase the local girls.

Me: "Guess what I am going to do to you when I get home?"
Me: "I'm going to slowly take off your clothes, kiss you slowly from
head to toe ..."
Lenka: "mmm ... sounds nice ... and then?"
Me: " ... and then f#@* you up the @#*%!!!"

Bratislav Pig's Dick At 3am In The Morning

Dusan: "Sure, all the time,

"Look at this Bratislav Pigs
Dick. These people are animals!"
Me: "Do you think Lenka likes
Bratislav Pigs Dick also?"
Dusan: "Sure ... all Czech
girls like Bratislav Pigs Dick. It doesn't say that in your Lonely

Slang Lesson 101
Just in case you don't
understand the last caption, in the Czech Republic, to smoke someone means to
give them a blowjob.
They actually have t-shirts
saying No Smoking Zone with somewhat suspect stick figures doing things to
each other for sale in the old town. Lenka has sent me some boxer
shorts along these lines.
Here's the Czech Slang 101
Yes! Show me more filthy words in Czech.
