A nice walk in a mild rain to the train station, and thirty minutes later, we arrive to Mnichovice (Mnee-ho-vee-chay). ... Lots of rain when we get there, Petr is there to pick us up and take us to their home. ... We can see immediately that we love the town. Cobblestone streets, no tourists, hills, limited graffiti, and population of roughly 5,000. Its great.
Their brand new home (just finished 9 months ago) is only three minutes from the train station.
Inside, we are treated to another home cooked meal. Petr has made a beef and vegatable soup. Tasty and just PERFECT for a cold rainy day. The kids ask for seconds ... and even Simon loves it! ... after this soup, he comments ... "Soup and I ... yeah, we've made our peace." ... prior to the trip, he loathed soup nearly as much as he did gravy. (who the heck hates soup and gravy??!).
Then, Irena cooked a wonderful pork, onion, bacon, and red bell pepper dish with fried potatoes. Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. Oh, I just drooled thinking of it.
Petr works in the building construction industry ..
For nearly five hours, we sit and eat and talk with Petr and Irena about everything from religion, to politics, to health insurance, and business and economy, to children, ... ... they have a 1yr old and a 3yr old. ... and the kids ate and played ... ... outside, the cold rain fell. Inside we got fat and happy. Drinks for everybody. ... and following food and drinks, HOME MADE DESSERTS!!! An amazing apple pie and a black and red current cobbler ... SO good. Coffee, beer, shots ... it was a celebration.
I'm still so tired from the food and conversation. A very enjoyable afternoon with Petr and Irena ... certainly a highlight of the trip. Sadly, we have to cut the visit short and return to Prague to pack ... tomorrow we leave for Malaga!
