One of the towers on the Stare Mesto end of Charles Bridge. Shortly after taking this picture, I had to run interference for another American tourist -- he was trying to take a picture along the bridge, and one of the trinket peddlers on the bridge was shining a mirror in his face and camera, keeping him from taking a picture. Not sure if the guy's objective was to simply annoy the tourist or to extort a couple bucks out of the guy. I stood in the way for a moment as I passed between them, just long enough for the American to get his picture.

Considering how angry the tourist was getting, I probably saved the peddler a thrashing by doing so.
