What’s next? Competitive Backgammon, maybe – I learnt some basic rules at the Northern Ireland tourney this year. As usual, competitive gear is a notch up.
We attended a concert by the Prague Philharmonia right after the tournament. It was a very good performance, partially thanks to the excellent acoustics in the hall. The best thing about it was that all of it (the Dvorak Czech Suite, Boccherini Cello Concerto, Bizet Symphony No. 1) cost 100 CZK – as Cheah said, a cup of tea.
We didn’t manage to find much “Czech” food in Prague, perhaps because of the places we went to. This was post-concert – we ended up eating Italian food around the district which wasn’t too bad (scoops of gelati for 20 CZK!)
We had a bit of time to walk around after the tourney. This is Staroměstské náměstí, or the Old Town Square.
Charles Bridge, bustling with tourists
This is Michael McKenna before he won the WYSC. He was clearly ahead of the curve.
