I love learning about other countries, cultures. I am particularly interested in learning about European countries---Eastern Europe in particular. There are wonderful stories there. Stories of bravery, stalwartness, and of course, coming into the 21st century after years behind the iron curtain.
I am very interested in the culture and history of the Czech Republic. This tiny country has been pushed, pulled and yanked from pillar to post by the Germans and Russians. BUT before this unfortunate time, they had a rich and proud history as a monachary and republic.
I had the good fortune to spend a summer there three years ago teaching English to adult learners. During my time there, I made lovely Czech friends and learned much about their history. Ths is a country that essentially missed the entire 20th century because it was behind the iron curtain. But now, it's growing and becoming a destination country.
This will depend upon WHEN and where they are held. Because I live in Westchester and I get up extremely early in order to get to work, I cannot attend meetups that meet during the week. I am willing and able to attend during weekends. If meetings are held then, I could commit to attending most meetings.
