Mbala's parents are so adorable. This is a snapshot strolling down a road in his hometown, Ceske Budejovice.

The same city during the day.
Mbala's parents own an old water mill and are working on fixing it up to be a working glass studio, blacksmithy, and art gallery. It's full of gorgeous old stonework!
Startings of the blacksmith area!
The mill is 'Sovy mlyn' which means Owl's Mill. Even cooler. :)
Glass color samples in the mold melted glass studio.
A delightful experience at a local tea shop in the city. Mbala loves Pu erh tea and they had some amazingly old varieties we got to try. I am appreciating it more, now, but I still think it tastes like dirt. Mbala calls it 'earthy'.
Lammergeier at the Prague zoo. It was amazing to see these birds in person here - they are the coolest vultures and one of my favorite raptors.
Random and rare photo of me... smiling. ;)
This was my third trip back to the Czech Republic and was a very laid back one - we mostly spent time visiting with family and relaxing, checking out the local sites in Mbala's hometown. We look forward to our next trip back!
