After Italy (see previous entry) My parents flew to Prague
for 5 days. My Mother said that Prague was a completely different world from Italy. It was darker, more moody and the buildings pointy & Jagged. It looks like a city out of an old gothic fairytale. Italy was bright and cheerful with cherubs. Prague had gargoyles
Here are more photographs taken by my father.
That's the hotel my parents stayed in.
Prague had a lot of statues sitting on the buildings and faces carved in the architecture. There was artwork everywhere.
A soldier standing guard in front of a castle. My father said he was stiff as a rod and stared straight ahead. It wouldn't respond to questions or even flinch.
My Father's dream car. A rare vehicle to see outside of a showroom. (of course he had to take a picture
) I'm posting it for my guy friends to see.This photo made me miss Germany so much
, it reminded me of the town we lived in. Prague has a very German
feel to it in certain areas.
My father had a safe flight back to Iraq
. He called my mother to let her know that he was okay. My Mother misses him so much right now and it was hard for them to separate again after this vacation together.
My father will be leaving Iraq and returning to the states for good (hopefully
) in October.
One last thing. I have a question
and I was hoping someone that reads this could help me out
This is my favorite pillow
It's soft and conforms to the shape of your head. It feels like a big beanie bag and the outside is made of a satin-like material. I can't sleep without it.
The problem is... I have no idea what that symbol means
. I assume it's Asian, but I can't find the translation on the internet. I always just figured it means something generic like "good luck" or "fortune". But I just realized it could mean something twisted like "War" or "Hate"
So the question is: Does anyone know the meaning behind the symbol on my pillow??
I take it with me on all my plane flights and had it for a long time... so I'm just really curious.
