Compiling a city

I’m in Prague this weekend, a short visit. As I have been here before and  have read a lot of Prague stories, I’m continually compiling the here-and-now city with the has-been. Must be one of the advantages of well-stocked mind. I keep turning corners and walking into myself 10 years ago – at a cafe we’ve frequented, a bench where we sat in the weak spring sunshine. No weak sunshine this time – this year’s summer definitely started end of may. I did not even take my camera out until the evening, as the bright light does not flatter the city. It was in the evening that Prague-as-is merged with Prague-as-perceived: mysterious, alluring, exiting.

Wiki: A compiler is a computer program (or set of programs) that transforms source code written in a programming language (the source language) into another computer language (the target language, often having a binary form known as object code). The most common reason for wanting to transform source code is to create an executable program.
