When I started writing Half ‘n Half for the Prague Monitor in the autumn of 2007, I had no idea seven years later that I’d be still writing. I wanted a way to communicate the cultural differences (and similarities) that I observed while living in the Czech Republic with my Czech husband and children, Anna Lee (9), Oliver (almost 7) and Samuel (almost 4).
Recently, one of my adult English students commented, “Sometimes I think you don’t know where you belong, in the Czech Republic or in the US.” She’s right. Although my American heritage is strong, after ten year living here, I have adapted to life in the Czech Republic, and I’m sometimes torn where to call home.
I hope you enjoy these stories about my experiences living in the Czech Republic.
