    I just wanted to introduce myself and say Hi to everyone. My daughter is moving to Prague in 2 weeks to take a job teaching English and I will be visiting her in November. My grandmother was born in Trebon and I will be visiting where she was raised and I am so excited to be making this trip and excited for my daughter to have the experience of living in a beautiful city.

    Welcome. Wonder how your daughter managed to get that teaching job abroad. Great opportunity for her, and evidently for you too, since you get to go visit her.

    My daughter took a course in Greece to teach English overseas and she got offered 2 positions in Prague either teaching young children or business people, she choose the 5-6 year olds, which should be a lot of fun for her. I have always talked about my grandparents being from Czechoslovakia (my grandmother was from Czech and my grandfather from Slovakia) so she was really interested in visiting the country. I have always wanted to see where they came from so I think I also encouraged her a little -- maybe alot. Now all I need to do is find where in Slovakia my grandfather is from. He passed years ago and didn't speak English too well so I am having a difficult time with this project. My last name is Lidik and I understand the town he was from has paintings and such donated by the "Lidik" family and I am really interested in my roots. This is going to be quite a treasure hunt.

    Thanks for the warm welcome.
