As would anyone in Prague, Petr crossed the Charles Bridge. Page 46.
Charles Bridge, Prague
This old bridge was begun in 1357, and finished in 1402. Floods had damaged the earlier Judith Bridge, in 1342.
See the history of the bridge at monuments.guide-to-prague.be/charles-bridge.php http://www.remunda.com/travel/review/prague_monuments.html. Scroll down to the Bridge section. Also see www.myczechrepublic.com/prague/sightseeing/charles_bridge.html
On both sides of the bridge, you will meet the saints, including Wenceslas.

I set some change in the pavement cap of an individual looking in particular misery crumpled on a dirty blanket. He suddenly revived, with a friendly grin and a distinctly American thank you. And, even more suddenly, the ragged, mittened stump at the end of his forearm showed distinct finger wriggling inside the mitten. Free enterprise worldwide. Gotta love it.
However, on another occasion, with a bona fide person in need elsewhere in the city, not a trafficked tourist area, his eyes and his gratitude and disbelief that anyone would actually offer to get him through the day, are with me still. Nobody's govt, that leaves healthcare up to the profit-makers, is doing the job broad-based.
