My mother’s motherland: Czech Republic


Haven’t been doing much lately. Eat more delicious food. Practiced my German and was laughed at my Sebastian. Sent in my scholarship deferment request. And played some Nintendo Wii.

But in few hours I will be in the land of my ancestors: the Czech Republic. My mother’s mother’s mother was from Bohemia. My aunt Roberta has even done some research and located the town of Pisek as the most likely place of our families origin before emigrating to the US in the early 20th century.

I have always thought that I had a very European nose I guess I will be able to figure out if it comes from my Czech roots, it is surely not from my African side. Hopefully, my Bohemian brothers and sisters actually believe that I am one of their kinfolk.
