Trains don't go anymore through Žižkov. Now they have a tunnel to run through. I can't remember if it felt romantic or not to have trains behind the house, although our house is further from the track, it was kind of a strange experience to sit in one of the pubs there and to to feel the train crossing your back every 20 minutes. The place was shivering, glasses at the table moving slowly along.
For a year or so the rails are gone and the track has been turned into a bicycle path. They also pulled down one of the two bridges crossing diagonally the main street high above peoples' heads. I think that it is pity. The bigger one stayed. AND now, walking there, I can see what I wasn't allowed before.
What is it like to have an apartment under the roof there? It is some seventh floor or so, high and noisy, but what is the room there with those cubist windows shaped like?
Strange stairs, you will never see them from the street, this is taken from the bridge above the street. They look like they fall as soon as someone steps on them and see? They don't. Another strange thing is that they don't lead anywhere, there is no door at the bottom. Where is she going?
The back sides of the houses. The turned away faces.
