Hoping that the Lufthansa strike doesn't affect any of us.

Judith Hayes Mar 29, 2014 at 10:12 PM

Joan -- Good; will see you soon. Judy

Joan Snowden Mar 29, 2014 at 03:14 PM

Hi Judith--I'm going to the Prague Symphony at Municipal Hse 4/6
and have been seriously thinking about The will opt for the 7th if I decide yes.I arrive 4/2 so have some time to order that and maybe some more.............J

Judith Hayes Mar 29, 2014 at 02:13 PM

For those of you who haven’t yet ordered tickets to the cultural events – In case you’re looking for someone to join you at some events – I’m traveling solo and have ordered tickets for myself for the following: Prague Symphony Orchestra at Municipal House on April 6, National Marionette Theatre on April 7; Ta Fantastika black theatre on April 9, and the Jazz Boat on April 10. Anyone interested?
Belva Locker Apr 03, 2014 at 04:23 PM

Maybe. I'm also traveling solo. Looking forward to meeting you and all.

I took part in the October Prague trip and had a wonderful time. One of our lecturers arranged a day trip to Terezin, which was really interesting and moving. Several of the other participants went to Cesky Krumlov and enjoyed that very much as well. I don't think you could go wrong with either outing although I really enjoyed having an afternoon or two free just to wander around Prague. What a beautiful city! And it's hard to imagine a better host than Tomas.
Judith Hayes Mar 26, 2014 at 01:31 PM

Sounds great. I've added 3 days after the end of the Road Scholar program, so am also hoping to have some wandering time.

Joan Snowden Mar 26, 2014 at 10:05 AM

Now that both trips are offered as part of this trips agenda ( as add-ons) I don't think you have to e-mail Jan. He wrote that Thomas will present the choices at our first meeting April 5. See you soon!...........
at our first meeting. See you later Judith

Joan Snowden Mar 25, 2014 at 10:05 PM

Jan Petracek has emailed me that Cesky Krumlov and Terezin will both be offered as trip choices on our free day, April 9th..............

Judith Hayes Mar 26, 2014 at 02:45 AM

Joan, that sounds good; I was planning on going to Terezin, so if they will arrange it that will make the trip easier. Do you know whether we should let Jan know before then that we want to go?

Hi--I'm hoping to arrange a trip o Cesky Krumlov in S. Bohemia for April 9th, our full free day for this trip. Cesky Krumlov is a
small beautifully preserved medieval town with the full array of architectural styles, it's own castle, cobblestone streets, etc. It would be about a 10 hr. trip. I'm hoping enough people will be interested that Tomas Brychta or Jan Petracek will arrange a car and driver for us. So if you have an interest in this trip, please post and also let Jan/Tomas know by e-mail. Hoping to hear from you! Thanks.........J
