Upon returning I went to the grocery store to pick up some food. I am happy to report that I can now order things from the deli in Czech. "Rad bych chvrtina kila" I would like a quarter kilo (from there I just point). Wednesday was a productive day.
Thursday I slept in. Not much else to say. I was tired, it was cold outside.
Today I woke up and watched some international news on my Chromebook. Then I decided I needed a pillow with more support (neck cramps) and started looking for a linen store. Google.cz did not understand "linen store" but recommended Ikea and a hotel. Out of hope that there would be a supermarket chain nearby similar to Wal Mart or Target, I googled supermarket and found Kaufland just down the street. It was almost exactly like Wal Mart or Target with a couple of nicer things. There is a dedicated butcher/deli and bakery in the front of the store for those who just want to pick up something quick for home. It is brighter and cleaner than Wal Mart, but not trendy like Target. Walking through the isles one could have thought that I had never seen a supermarket as I strolled around and looked at all the different brands, and took in the Czech take on several familiar foods. "Mexico Sauce" and frozen pizza with corn on top were among my favorite oddities.
That's about it for now. Tonight I am going to watch the opening ceremony for the Olympics and enjoy my corn and salami pizza with a beer. I admit I am going to get really bored if my work permit takes much longer. There's only so much I can do without a decent command of the language. I would love to start work!
