Times Writer Continues Hunt for Travel Cliches
What's with travel media and "X is the new Y?" Public enemy number one when it comes to the reductionist formulation would have to be the New York Times, which has another new Prague this week: Krakow, Poland.
Writer Denny Lee (turns out Denny is a good photographer as well) has some "fresh" "intelligence" from those who know the city best: a bunch of self-described bohemians. (We're suspicious.) Here's what a dozen expats got up to last October:
The group chatted about their creative endeavors as they polished off six-packs of Tatra Pilsener, smoked hand-rolled cigarettes and, at one point, began scrawling existential messages on the walls. Then, at about midnight, they headed off to Kitsch, a multilevel pansexual club on Ulica Wielopole, where they danced until the wee hours.
Sounds like Krakow might be the new Cartagena.
