29/3/13. Easter. Very Cold. Speedway as Started. Time for Another Book Review. " Prague Pictures ", By John Banville. Start, Crossing The Border, in to the Czech Republic. Brought Memory,s Back For Me. After a Polska Speedway Match at Wroclaw. Traveled on the Midnight Train back to the Czech Republic. At the Border. Train was Stopped. Everybody had to move to the Corridor. While the Train was Searched, with Dogs. Mainly because of Cigarette Smuggling. Was Fascinated about the Passage on Ceiling Lights, and Hidden Microphones. Author talks about the Silence of Praha. Thing that Strikes Me. Is the Quality of the Light. Only Place with Good Light, as Good. Was Ibiza, the White Isle. The Historical Parts of the Book. Are Very Good. Sections on Josef Sudek, Photographer. Born 1896, in Kolin. How He Worked, very Like a Alchemist. And on Emperor Rudolf 11. More History on Tycho Brahe. Had Lavish Funeral at the Tyn Church. Church still has the Black & Gold Decor. Tycho had a Amazing Life. Died from a Kidney Stone, or could have Been Uraemia. His Partner. Mathematician & Astrologer, Johannes Kepler. Interesting Inscription in Novy Svet. Where there was once, the Golden Griffin Inn. Section on Con Men, John Dee & Edward Kelly. Must Also make a Point of Visiting Josefov Cemetery. People in the Book, Dream of the USA, and the West. Me I Dream the Other Way. My Dreams are Only of Praha. Author Mentions the Strange things, that Tend to Happen in Praha. This is True. Lost Count of the Things, that have Happened to Me. Maybe the Story of the Three Mystic City,s. Praha, Lyon, & Turin. Enjoyed the Book, and John Banville,s Writing. Will Read another of His. I Think " The Shroud ".
