Forced idle...

Our first couple of days in Prague were action packed and we were stoked to make the Pro Action Cafe happen, however some facts of life kicked in and we have to stay here a little longer than planned. 

Nanond still needed a Visa for Serbia, so we went to the embassy last friday and they told us that with completed forms and an invitation letter from Serbia by monday, we should have it by thursday or friday this week. "Ride for your Rights" were really supportive in sending us an invitation letter very quickly: we are very greatful for that. Back to the embassy yesterday it turned out that after examining Nanond's student visa for Sweden, a visa for the few days necessary in Serbia could be issued on the spot!! No doubt the supporting documents still helped. 

For his part Xav got ill, not to the point of being stuck in bed, but he's not to get back on a bike to do 100km for days in a row just yet... 

SO, to keep to our schedule of arriving in Novi Sad by July 2nd, we will have to take a train to Vienna... it's really a "bummer". In our bad luck we are lucky though - we are staying with family and we will be with MSLS (Xav's master's programme) friends in Vienna where another workshop is in the making. We can also spend some time adding content to our new pages in the tabs above, and finally, some "Riders for your rights" also contacted us to ride our last day with us in Serbia, big thanks for that and we are so looking forward to it!!!

More Czech stuff coming soon: looking forward to explore more of stunning Prague and be back on the road! 

PS. We would like to take this opportunity to say that we didn't mean to offend anyone in saying the "average" (what a word to speak of people anyway!?!) german doesn't speak good english! This was before arriving in Berlin where:
  1. We actually spoke to more people and,
  2. our german friends waved their finger at us when evoking this comment ;)
Morale of the story: don't generalise! PLUS it's not for us to speak: we only learned a few words like "thanks", "turn left" or "go straight" in Polish, German and Czech so far! We'll add local specialties to our vocabulary!
