Drying the Dishes Will Remind Me of Prague

When traveling I seek out interesting textiles in flea markets and second-hand stores.  Many of the dishtowels in our kitchen drawer are linen calendars from places I have visited, or would like to visit.  On our first day in Prague this summer I walked and walked, and stumbled upon a second-hand shop with mostly vintage clothing.  In a basket under a rack of dresses I found this linen.


I stuck the package in my suitcase and didn’t realize until I returned home that the scene on the calendar was the same famous downtown square that I passed by many times during our stay.  The fairy tale view seemed unreal, especially at night.  When this photo was taken, I thought the buildings on the right side looked like a Hollywood movies set, as if I could walk behind them and see scaffolding holding up the pretty facades.
