Settling in to a new life in Prague

Posted on 5th January 2014

Its been over nine months now since we arrived back from South America and we've found our feet a bit. Petra's beautiful and spacious apartment on the border of Vinohrady and Zizkov was available after the old tenant moved out and so we took it as our new home.
We both have been working hard to establish ourselves here - Petra as an Investor Relations Consultant and me as a Web Developer. I'm building a web content management system for companies that need to manage their Investor Relations areas within their corporate websites. Its a big project and not very music-related, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.....
So not much music being made at the moment, just the occasional strum on the old guitar. I'm taking classes in Czech twice a week and so far it's going well. Yesterday I earned two sweets for being top of the class! Fanstastický! Some of those words are quite tricky to pronounce though - having a musical ear is quite a help here...they forgot to put the vowels in most of the words and so learning to say them is best done by listening carefully to how they say them
