I arrived safely in Prague. Hopefully my luggage will only be a day behind. Either it needs t0 cool off or I need some clean clothes.   Mirka’s children are ill so I may need to travel to Pardubice to meet with her.  I’m getting very nostalgic at the very thought of visiting this city again. 

 I had a discussion with my waitress tonight that both fascinated and saddened me.  I asked her about a man who was a former president and ideological leader against communism.  She wasn’t familiar with him.  Neither apparently was he coworker she went to ask.  Forgetting history is a common ailment. 

 I’m hoping to visit with Honza tomorrow after getting a little needed sleep on the morning 

One last but very important note- a special thanks to those of you who helped me put this trip together on such short notice.
