I’m often asked about the heritage of my last name – I get guesses from Souix Indian (Lakota) to Hawaiian or Polynesian. In reality, my great-grandfather was born in Prague, Bohemia, now part of the Czech Republic. We had a chance to visit there last year, and it was one of my bucket list trips. The city was essentially untouched by both world wars, and even the weight of communism couldn’t keep the city’s spirit down. This is a view of the city from one of the walls of Prague Castle.
