"It's not Czechoslovakia anymore."
"No. It's like they decided to split the country and make two instead -- The Czech Republic and Slovakia. You know, like if they split Utah down the middle and had U and Tah. Or, Washington became Wash and Ington."
"What are they known for?" The Bohemian Rhapsody starts playing in my head. Nope.
"Bohemian Crystal." pause. "And I read somewhere that they have a killer soccer team."
"The Christmas Markt on Saturday will be wonderful, I think!"
The Samantha Brown DVD we watched gave us a bit of insight...
Conversations in which we bounce our questions, schema's, and theories between one another in the van on the 7-hour drive to Prague.
But since our arrival early yesterday, our senses are nearly on overload as we are in a place unlike any we've visited so far. It's a mix...
We're BLESSED to be here. But it will take some time to articulate our experience. This place (like every other place I've ever visited) has captured my heart... I am intrigued. Fascinated. These people. Their stories. Where they've come from. Our pension owner's comment yesterday, "This is the most atheist country in Europe."
Tell me more.
