To see Czech Republic


Prague is one of the top places where I NEED to go in summer. I’ve been there twice and loved it, but with snow and negative temperatures.

I’m sure I only caught the cold side of town. Marvelous places, how will they be with summer life?

How do I convince Fernanda?

​Where are the shopping malls?

Czech music

As folklore lover Czech Republic was essentially the capital of my favorite dances.
As professional in glass industry, I needed to visit the country of Bohemia.
That’s what took me to Zelezny Brod and twice to Prague, by accident both times in winter, forcing me to keep of Prague the image of a marvelous but dark and cold town.​ Ok! Ok! I know! Next time will be in summer.

We made the trip from Zwiesel, in Germany, to Prague by train. The second leg of the trip, from Klatovy was made in a modern train, with all the conditions and respect for scheduling. But the first leg was… special. In the border, crossed on foot carrying the bags in the grey freezing morning, we took a small train, with two carriages, only one of them heated.

​The train followed slowly, stopping quite often, to exchange people carrying skis. At one of those stops, my friends went out to smoke. 

After a few moments I noticed that the controller of the train, was standing behind them, with crossed arms, just… waiting for them to finish the cigarettes. Having no idea of the language spoken by those strange foreigners, he didn’t even try to use signals. Just wait. After my warning, everything ended in big smiles, and the train could finally proceed. But it was a funny scene: the 3 Portuguese who stopped the train to smoke. Unbelievable!
