Scenes from My Life in Prague

Illegally filling up on gasoline without coupons during rationing, early Spring 1990. Pictured: Petr Dupal, Peter Holecek of the Elixir Prague Lab and Eric Searle of Elixir USA

Entrance through the crumbling walls around Hvezda park near my residence and offices at Elixir Prague Hvezda, the local park in Bila Hora, Prague, where I walked almost every day. An early spring day with mothers and Babickas (grandmothers) and their baby strollers

Canoeing and Camping in Southern Bohemia, Summer 1993. Karel Michek (of the Elixir Prague Lab) and Bruce Damer
View from the Charles University Math/Physics Faculty, Mala Strana, Prague. This is the office of Rudolf Kryll, co-founder of the Nadace pro Informatiku Paul Martia, a member of the Beef Stew poets, with myself on Charles Bridge  
Camping buddies in Southern Bohemia, 1993. Favorite passtime of former "Eastern Bloc" Europeans. We are camping and mushroom hunting right on the Czech-Austrian border, former location of tank exercises and land mines.    

Prague Pub Life

Celebrating (well getting really drunk actually) Tuesday afternoons at U Zlateho Tigra with my group of doctor friends (brain surgeons no less!). Above us is Holub, as this his honored and permanent chair at the Stamgast (special guests) table.
