Someone was deeply influenced by early Keanu Reeves...

I really love this.

I wish I could say I saw this in person. Alas, only via internet.

This street artist (you can see his/her signiture on the taught tendons; "Tasso") is based in Germany. I guess it's a good reason to go back to visit again.

It reminds me of old Samurai illustrations;

a wall in Prague

Where to even start with this wall? Che Guevera? Yuri Gagarin? Russian go home? This is from a wall in Prague, a city that was ruled by a horribly oppressive communist regime for decades and for the most part the locals consider to have been devistating to Czech culture... I'm afraid I can't even comment... this wall is so perfect it seems fake.

Also... it's odd to me that it's all written in English.  Why no Czech?

The Wall, after the fall, and after the resurection...

The Berlin wall came down. It was torn down with fervor... later on people thought that it might serve some historical interest to have a small part of it up. It is still in the process of becoming a historical site with museum and all. We chose not to take the cheesy tourist shots of us "escaping" through the wall or posing with the bright blue Berlin Bear that could be seen through the holes in the wall... yes I left that to Other American tourists...
