My husband has been to two funerals since he came – an uncle on each side of his family. On Monday we were picked up for the 90 minute drive to Zlin for the second one, an uncle I have met a number of times. Most of the way there, we had some time to spare and were stuck behind a horse trailer so we pulled over in a gas station to wait.
were frozen. Here is a photo of everyone from the rear! Eventually we got things functioning and went off to the funeral, using only the hand brake and running a few yellow lights. We screeched up to the chapel just in time.
After the short service (not a religious one) we walked over to look at the gravesite and then close family (including us) gathered at a restaurant. On entering we were each presented with a shot of
supposedly award-winning slivovicz which was actually not bad after the first sip. Since we complimented the maker, he promptly gave us a bottle! So far we have 2 litres and I think we’ll refuse any more.We had a good meal, including more of my favourite sauerkraut soup and then came home without further event.
