Adventures in Writing, Reading & Book Culture

Moving on from Suchdol

If there’s anything I know in life, it’s that change happens almost constantly. I embraced that years ago, so little gets me down, and lots of things get me excited. On May 16th I’m moving closer to Prague center, in Vinohradny (wine castlery), near enough to St James School and good transportation so that life will surely take a more exciting turn.

For one thing, I’ll have access to night trams, which means I won’t have to run home at 11.30 from dinner or clubs because I need to catch the last bus up the hill to Suchdol. Now I’ll be able to see all of a band’s sets when I go out. Yea for the small things.

I’m going to flat share with Anne, a fellow teacher who hales originally from Oklahoma and now happily calls Prague “home.” We get along well, and have common interests that make conversation worthwhile, if not terribly stimulating. The flat is a split 2br with common kitchen and bath, big windows in my bedroom with southern exposure, on the 5th floor with a sort-of view across part of the city (though not a castle view). My bank has a branch down the street, and a supermarket lies in opposite walking directions 1 blk from the door. And I can practically fall out of bed and onto the tram, so that’s good, too.

The Suchdol flat, while roomy and very private, has become a situation in which I find myself between battling family members. This is a problem I don’t have time for, even as snickering bystander looking for dirt that could fill out a story (i’ve got enough from talk anyway). I’ll miss a bit of the house life, but this is a good move because the city is now much closer to my perambulations.

Life is good.
