Czech Republic & Slovakia

The team had the chance to explore Prague, Czech Republic, in the daylight today, as they arrived in the dark the night before. On foot and by car, the city had a lot to offer, including a full interview with Arriello, a company with an office in the city, and some conversations with passersby. The journey to Bratislava, Slovakia, marked the halfway point on the Road to 2021, even though it’s the 18th country on the list, and there are many more days ahead of the team.

 

Another rainy day, but a lot accomplished on Day 13! And also another police stop. Maybe we should be adding those numbers to the metrics?
