I am home from The Czech Republic. A terrific holiday where I visited Marienbad, Prague and Karlsbad. Three beautiful towns. There is a sort of optimism there now. With entry into the EU and free from the shackles of communist oppression, CZ is beginning to recover some of it’s former glory.
The Hungarians took the world pipe smoking championship. The guy smoked for 3 hours and 3 minutes before his pipe finally burned out. I wasn’t even close. They came from all over the world. Mexico, Russia, Japan and the United States, and almost every european country you can name. I met old friends and old combatants. We had a ball.
The sun shone throughout the holiday and it was a trip to remember. I am definitely going back to Prague.
I hope everyone has been behaving while I was away. I have a lot of e-mail to catch up on, not least from the 910 group (404 messages!) and some personal stuff to get through.
Damn, my holiday was great, but it’s good to be home.
