Daily: Morning In Smichov



I am not a very good morning person. I’ve spent the better part of my adult existence engineering my life so that I don’t have to wake up to an alarm clock. It’s not that I’m lazy…well there is some of that in there too, but I’m a terrible sleeper so I tend to wake up and stay awake for a few hours each night. That said, morning is my very favorite part of the day. I love how fresh and energetic the world feels as shops are opening, kids are being shuttled to school, and people are rushing to catch the train.

This morning I had a doctor’s appointment at 7:00. The AM one. SEVEN. OH. FREAKING. CLOCK. IN. THE. MORNING. I do not understand this country sometimes, but I will forgive it its few transgressions because it has lovely cobblestone streets and a nice and big pretty castle to look at.
