Of all things, I ran into a guy wearing a Nebraska hat on the bus from Plzen to Domazlice. He didn't speak English but he said his sister has been living and working in Nebraska for 7 years and has a husband there. He was my age with blonde curly hair, big earrings a big silver chain, and a joint behind his ear. He didn't know what the hat meant when I asked him. At first he was hesitant and looked suspicious of me. He spoke a different sounding Czech. I wish I would have asked him for his sister's address. That would be crazy to meet her and tell her I met her brother on a dark rainy night while riding a bus between two small towns in Western Bohemia.
Anyway, we got off the bus, he offered me some marijuana, I politely declined, and he walked me to this pension. He warned me to be careful in Plzen, he said the people are "bad". But he said Karlovy Vary people are nice.
I just had some breakfast and my lungs hurt from smoking the air in this little coffee shop. Ugh. But it's a cool little place, very welcoming and cozy. I want to go see this place. I wish I knew the name of my last known relatives here. I am going to Plzen next and then Karlovy Vary. Thanks for reading everybody.
