Tag: czech republic


our last days volunteering in the czech republic involved drinking burcak, making wine with our feet and turning hay. haymaking by hand in the sunshine is such a wonderful job (when you don’t have to do it all the time) and it always makes me think of these paintings by jean-francois millet.


czech point

internet has been so sporadic for so long. i’m working on a vineyard in the czech republic and the summer seems to have flown by.



the last weekend we had a wine tasting with over 20 different wines and at the end of the night our host sliced the top off a bottle of sparkling wine with a dagger. apparently it is a necessity with this type of wine.
