This is a whole trend tho, isnt it, now? Like, urban climbing? One of those new extreme sports? Kids using the towerblocks and buildings to do the craziest jumping stunts.. there's a word for it, forget what it is.

Parkour. Its called parkour. Though there's also a twin form called Yamakasi - which the film was named after (duh!).

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
Yamakasi

The Yamakasi are a group of practitioners of the sport of l'art du d├ęplacement (French: the art of movement).

The sport resembles, and has its origins in, that of parkour which involves surmounting (often) urban obstacles as efficiently as possible. The philosophy of the Yamakasis, however, is that of aesthetics and complete freedom of movement from point A to point B, as opposed to parkour which focuses on efficiency of movement between point A to point B, without the emphasis on aesthetics. Hence Yamakasis perform flips and tricks, while traceurs (parkour practitioners) do not.


Theres LOTS more info on Wikipedia about Parkour

And of course, we're not talking guys who are doing it like James Bond - could have guessed it! - but the last James Bond film featured this stuff because it was already a hip extreme subculture.

Heavy stuff in this documentary - these guys put the Russian to shame. Serious eyecandy for Dag Smile

Generation Yamakasi

we should try that in komarno.

Ha!

There's a li'l problem with Komarno. When exactly are you in Slovakia again? The problem is - from the 9th to the 11th I'm in London for a meeting (hey, I'll meet one of the Dutch royals! Smile - but the squeeze is that I dont have a passport right now. My old one elapsed.

I applied for a new one last week, and the friendly young lady reassured me several times that "it should be OK" and "there should be no problem" in getting my passport before I have to leave - that is Friday the 8th at the latest - which I damn well hope b/c there's no refund on the plane ticket.

But yeah, I'm guessing it will probably only be ready right at the last moment - which means I wouldnt be able to cross the border into Slovakia in the meantime..

Whats right across the border from Komarom here in Hungary? :-D

I have a friend who is leaving Barcelona tomorrow and heading to Prague. Anything off the beaten trail that is worthwhile to see there?

I would have asked Calmity Jane but she is no longer talking to me.

I just said you're harmless. It doesn't mean I am no longer talking to you -
tststs, I always do and will.

I'm heading to Prague myself in a few weeks, haven't been there before,
so I can't give your friend any suggestions.

Well... gus....
To make this shorter:

dive pubs or lounges?

4 star restaurants or, well, dive pubs with Czech greasy yet great food?

Ballet or crazy little off-the-beaten-path theatre?

There's choices for all worlds in Prague. I got to know a little more about your friend.

There used to be an old dive pub called Jama (Hole) right near the Wenceslass Square. THey used to have the best Vepro Knedlo Zelo (Pork Dumpling and Cabbage) on this planet. It must still be there, though probably a lot more touristy. Anyhow, my most favorite place was a squat near Troja Palace...bunch of Norweigean kids turned an old farm into a coop of sorts. They ran their own pub, gallery, worked on the farm. It was a lovely place. They were chased out though. But Troja is still nice to see.
I also love walking about the old Jewish quarter. There was a big flood in 2003. Some of it got damaged, but most remains. Who loves history needs to see Vysehrad, the cradle of the Czech nation.... there's tons to see and do.

I fired off that info, dag. I'm assuming they are already there but they may get the message in time and therefore have an opportunity to sample some of that Vepro Knedlo Zelo (Did I say that right?)

Anyway, thanks. I hope I have the opportunity to visit the city at some point; it sounds like a wonderful place.
