  416. I was sitting with my friend in a small cafe in old part of Prague, when one couple came in.  It was clear that they were old foreigners who were traveling.  They had gray hair and they were probably tired, but you should see their eyes!  They looked at each other as they were just married.  I gave a glance at my friend and thought, "It would be so great if, one day, when we would be 60 or 70, we would still be together.  We would come to some city, we would be very tired of walking all the day, we would come by to a small cafe and he would be looking at me as we were just married, and I would also look at him and see that handsome guy in an old man with gray hair . . ."  Then I looked at my friend again and said, "Do you know what I just thought?"  And he said, "Wait a second, let me tell you what I just thought."  And his thought was, "It would be so great if, one day, when we would be 60 or 70, we would still be together.  We would come to some city abroad and we would be very tired of walking the whole day in this city.  We would come by a small cafe, and I would be looking at you as if you were the only woman in my life, and we would feel as if we were just married and I would see that beautiful girl in an old woman with gray hair . . ."  That was my moment of happiness.
