    Hi all :D !

    I have lived in the US my entire life. I have an ancestrial link to Bohemia on my mother's side. I have always wanted to learn, possibly visit Bohemian culture and history. I am counting the days till the bookstore recieves the English/Czech translation dictionary that I requested. I would love to hear from someone to talk to about learning Czech; language, culture, music, food, modern way of life, etc. , or even just general topics. I am a quick learner 8) !

    By 4 now :!:

    I know, you caught me :oops: . But it still helps me to learn to use the seznam/slovnic translations. So its not completely cheating :twisted: . It would be complete cheating if I asked someone to write it for me, so there.

    Ahoj prozatim!

    Hi Gypzy,

    Sorry I pm'd you before I found this post. My husband is Czech and we have a lot of Czech friends and a lot of Czech things we go to. Again if you are close to the West side of Michigan and interested in some Czech events/parties, let me know.

    We are in Michigan but only 1 1/2 hours from Chicago. There are a lot of events in Chicago that we go to. The parties are closer to home though and usually on the beech or a camp fire. Quite FUN! Let me know when you plan to take a road trip and I'll let you know if the Czechs are partying!! LOL that's a good one, there aren't many times Czechs aren't partying!

    I know for a fact that I will be at a genelogical meeting in the greater Chicagoland in October. So I would probably be passing near you then. Except my 80 year old grandma will probably be w/ me and her "baby sister" might go. I thought I would take them to the hometown of thier mother's. The bar where their grandfather used to drink after his wife died is still there, may even be the bar that his f-in-l bartended. I thought that would be fun to go have a beer and burger there. They're also excited about trying out Illinois casinos. Isn't that the senior pasttime in Michigan :lol: ? I will let you know if I decide to take a road trip before then. Usually my road trips are spontanious :D .

    Bye 4 Now
