a stroll at Stromovka Park::the largest park in Prague

by Robert Frost 

O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
To-morrow's wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
To-morrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow,
Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know;
Release one leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
One from our trees, one far away;
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.
Slow, slow!
For the grapes' sake, if they were all,
Whose leaves already are burnt with frost,
Whose clustered fruit must else be lost—
For the grapes' sake along the wall.

This past weekend I went for a walk at Stromovka Park with some friends
after attending an Expat Expo, basically an event for wealthy foreigners with families
to find all the English-speaking services in Prague...we did enjoy the free give-aways though! 
I got a henna tattoo on my forearm for free. :)

It was a wonderfully windy weekend with low clouds
and a light drizzle. Besides the walk in the park, I did get my lazy self out of the flat
to see two movies at the oldest cinema in Prague
and enjoyed some good conversation over a thick, hot chocolate at my favorite coffee shop in town
with my roommate who is about to leave me for the States in November. 

The week is now in full swing and I've got new students to tutor (in my flat).
Hooray for not having to travel to more homes!
And I've got a British guest speaker coming and talking to my classes about the British lifestyle.
I am so very excited!
