    April 11 Susan, Christine and I went to “The Tank” to see Celeste Cahn perform her work: “A lady does not scratch her crotch”, which she also wrote and directed. It was an intensely acted review of women’s historical and present day emotional and societal challenges. The title protests that a lady does not scratch her crotch, but this one did– and since her hand was covered in shaving cream at the time, the result was really messy!

    April 15 Peoples’ Concert at the Town hall. An all-Mozart concert given by the Peabody Chamber Orchestra. It was conducted with confident professionalism by Leon Fleisher in spite of his advancing years. He also played the solo piano in the A Major Concerto with his old sparkle still intact.

Farewell Prague

This is the last of eight posts covering the River Elbe trip I made with Kim last November. The host of noteworthy experiences and the number of friends we made on the trip made this posting session such a long drawn-out one.  I hope it hasn’t been too boring.

This post is, largely, about the farewell dinner we enjoyed with our fellow travelers at one of Prague’s many great restaurants and the entertainment put on by the restaurant staff. Kim and I found it a fitting end to a thoroughly interesting trip; satisfying in all aspects. Grand Circle with Peter and Marina did us proud!

THE END

Note. I am somewhat ashamed to admit that, in drawing out these posts over such a long time, my ageing memory has caused me to confuse faces and names of some of the many friends we met and whose company we enjoyed so much. Rather than embarrass myself further, I have left captions blank and hope that Kim and younger memories will come to my rescue. Ben
