    Hi Tanja, looking forward to reading your World Blog Surf Day post and tweeting about it – especially since you are living my expat experience in reverse.

    Taky to nechapu, ze uz je to 20 let! Vrele doporucuji film “Power of the Powerless”: – dokumentarni film o komunismu, 68, 89 a o zivote po 20 letech padu komunismu.
