21. 6. 2018 – Zuzana celebrates her 9th birthday

Zuzana is celebrating her 9th birthday today. She’s been looking forward to it (the presents, mostly) since morning. A little after 7, we take the bus to Větřní. She goes to school and I make a cake for the afternoon. Armed with all the party supplies, we get in the car and almost leave without […]

Notes from 20 June 2018

It’s just after 7am on Wednesday. Four street sweepers pass by, then a truck to take away the trash.

The start of our journey with UNES-CO

On my way from Latrán to the square, I pass two overflowing garbage cans. On the square, I go looking for an empty bench. There’s several to choose from. Even […]
