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.
The Yamakasi are a group of practitioners of the sport of l'art du déplacement (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.
Everything screams at climax. Even mimes
we should try that in komarno.
that's a possibility. it would have to be between 6th nd 8th then...which are work days. eh?
I would have asked Calmity Jane but she is no longer talking to me.
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.
