St Vitus Cathedral, Prague

From Steve Schlesinger, we have another extraordinary perspective of the tour. Steve lives in Escondido, CA, and decided to join our Kafka Project tour of Eastern European cities when he learned his last name means "from Silesia," the area the Kafka Project is searching for Kafka's missing papers . Steve took dozens of  gorgeous pictures of the architecture of Prague, Krakow and Berlin, as well as fun shots of the group. He traversed each city by foot, underground, tram and bus, and managed to fit in three concerts! Thanks to Steve for sharing the photos  with us on Flickr.  

Corky Lang, our marvelous travel director, the man who was able to make a magical trip at a dream price come true, has shared a few pages from a journal he created for this blog. Over the next three days, please enjoy Corky's unique perspective from Prague, Krakow and Berlin. With no further ado, I give you Part One of  "The View from Corky's Head, or a Travel Director's Private Journal."
