5 Year Fiesta

July 1st marked my fifth anniversary of arriving on my Czechland adventure here in Brno.  Plus, July 4th was American Independence Day and July 5th was St. Cyril and St. Methodius Day, today is Jan Hus Day and my birthday is in a few weeks so there is plenty to celebrate this month.  Therefore a nice, respectable shindig was in order. 

I rented a venue out by the Brno Dam for some BBQ and good times.  Everyone really seemed to enjoy themselves.

Apparently I've been in Czechland long enough that I should be able to blend in more with the locals.

In order to make that happen some friends gave me socks and sandals.  The funny thing is that later, Martin and Katka also gave me socks and sandals.  So two sets of socks and sandals.  Maybe they will bring me luck when I take my state Czech language exam.

As a complete surprise, later on in the evening the pub started pumping our bubbles for a foam party.  Lots of fun!!  Thanks everyone for a great time.


  1. Congratulations, Chris, on five years in Brno! That's a wonderful accomplishment. You have been such an excellent expat - learning both the language and culture. Plus, you've done great things with this blog! May you have many more years in Brno, and lots of fun trips!
