la ultima palabra

Ya paso mucho tiempo desde mi salida de America central, de paises de ranas, arboles, playas y volcanes, de paises de mis nuevos amigos, de Costa Rica y Panama. Son mas de seis semanas cuando entre el avion y tuve que despedirme de todos, todas y todo que me parecio, que me gusto y que estoy extranando ahora mismo, mas tarde 🙂

Tengo que disculparme por nada nuevo en todo tiempo cuando no tuve ni una sola minuta para escribir algo pequeno aqui.. Fue un tiempo muy rapido, divertido y cansado, con muchos cambios.. Pero eso es exactamente lo que me gusta 🙂

Tome parte en dos celebraciones en mi familia, dos eventos muy grandes de AIESEC en la Republica Checa (conferencia nacional y Career Days), encontre a mis amigos “viejos” del colegio y del orquesta, estuve buscando un empleo y habitacion.. Es mucho para decir, es mucho para compartir..

Ahora hay temperaturas altas pero no es calorrrsh como en Santa Ana. Arboles son verdes, pero no tienen bananas. Hay rios pero ni oceano.. Todo es diferente, todo es como me recuerdo.. Pero unas cosas son diferentes.. Siempre alguien del otro parte del mundo charla conmigo como un amigo desde infancia, siempre alguien me pregunta sobre mi intercambio y mis sentimientos y tambien escribo mi “Diario” en espanol.. 🙂

Muchas gracias a todos, que me ayudaron para sentirme bien en su pais (y tambien en su casa :), no voy a olvidar ni unico momento de mi medioano con ustedes.. Chau, nos vemos! 🙂

PS. Eso es la ultima noticia en la categoria “Costa Rica 06/07”, tengo esperanza que mis narraciones les gustaron.. 🙂 / This is the last post in the category “Costa Rica 06/07”, I hope you liked my stories.. 🙂 / Toto je posledni prispevek v kategorii “Costa Rica 06/07”, doufam, ze se vam moje vypraveni libilo.. 🙂

silvestr a dalsi vylety / new year's eve, other trips

Hm, skoro se mi chce napsat, ze jsem se ani nenadal a rok 2006 je za mnou. Ale neni to az tak uplne pravda. Chvili utikal jako voda, jindy se zase nekonecne vlekl a mezitim ubihal klidne a bez udalosti, jez by zasluhovaly zvlastni pozornost.

Hm, I’d almost like to write, that I haven’t even noticed and the year 2006 is over. But it’s not the whole truth. Sometimes the time was running as a horse, sometimes hours seemed neverending and in between passed peacefully without events, that would demand any special interest.

vanoce pod palmama / christmas under palmtrees

Sednul jsem si na travnik, dal ruce za hlavu, podival se na ciste modrou oblohu, trochu si zanadaval na Slunce prazici neutuchajici silou a na mem cele se zacinaly objevovat kapicky potu. Idylicke odpoledne. Tedy az do chvile nez me vyrusilo pobihani decek, ktere nejely na prazdniny domu, a ruch priprav Stedrovecerni vecere. Vitejte ve stredni Americe v case vanocnim.

I sat down on a lawn, put my hands behind my head, looked at bright blue sky, said some bad words about the Sun shining with neverending power and on my forehead tiny drops of swaet started to appear. Almost fairy-tale afternoon. Well, only till the students that did not go home for vacations began to rush around and prepare the Christmas dinner. Welcome to central America in the Christmas time.

prvni snih! / first snow!

V jednom ze svych prispevku se Kyslik zminoval v Ghane o prekvapenich, ktere nastane po jakekoli mistni zmince o rodne zemi. Ja jich tady potkavam az necekane hodne – od obcasnych Skodovek, pres fotky libereckeho fotbaloveho tymu v novinach (hraje tam jeden kostarican, Winston Parks) az po billboardy s Petrem Cechem nebo Nicole Vaidisovou (fotbalovy brankar a tenistka, pozn. aut. 🙂

Patecni odpoledne na me ale prichystalo neco uplne noveho – ulice celeho centra San Jose byly bile! Mistni nejspise slavili 16 dni do Vanoc, oficialne skoncil skolni rok nebo testovali uklidove sluzby, protoze jak jinak si vysvetlit ty (nebojim se rict) tisice lidi s pytlikama bilych konfet (ano, tech malinkych utrzku papiru znamych ze stadionu nebo koncertu), kteryma se budto snazili “vylepsit” image okolojdoucich nebo je proste vyhazovali do vzduchu a tim za prispeni poulicnich lamp dotvareli dojem snehovych vlocek. Jo, to je presne to, co mi tady chybi. Ted uz jenom tech minus deset..

Paradoxem zustava, ze mam tady bile ulice drive nez v Evrope, ktera se poti v “tropickych” teplotach a i velka zimni sportovni strediska rusi jeden lyzarsky zavod za druhym. Pocasi se asi zblaznilo a ja zacinam premyslet, ze mozna ani nebudu muset Durovi tu bundu pujcovat, az se na Vanoce bude vracet domu.. 🙂

In one of his posts Kyslik described surprises that he experienced in Ghana with any mention of our country. I’ve been seeing quite lot of them (more than I expected) – from Skoda cars and pictures of Liberec football team (there is one Costa Rican player there, Winston Parks) to advertising billboard with Petr Cech or Nicole Vaidisova (football goalkeeper and a tennis player, editor’s note 🙂

Friday afternoon prepared something completely different – streets of the whole San Jose centre were white! The locals have been probably celebrating 16 days before Christmas, official end of the school year or just testing local cleaning service, because otherwise I can’t explain to myself those (I’m not afraid of saying) thousands of people with bags of white confetti (yes, those tiny pieces of paper known from stadiums or concerts), which they used to “improve” image of other people in the streets or just to throw in the air that maybe a beautiful snowflake effect using the street lamps shine. Yes, that’s exactly what I miss here. Now only having ten below zero..

The paradox of this story is that we’re having white streets earlier than Europe that is still sweating with “tropical” temperatures and even the big wintersports centers have to cancel skiing races. The weather probably went crazy and I start to think that maybe I won’t have to lend Duro a winter jacket for his Christmas visit at home.. 🙂
