Oxfordská Peach / Oxford Peach

Jaký jsou Čeští politici, takový je Český počasí - zrádný a nevypočitavý. Trochu hra na Karla IV., když poprvé ochutnával české víno, vzpomínáte? Pátá třída, lidi, čítanka, Romance o Karlu IV. od Jana Nerudy ... Ne? Přeci ochutná víno, vyprskne to, protože mu to nechutná, pak se nechá přesvědčit, aby se znovu napil a řekne: "Víš - zkoumat treba Bušku milý! To víno má svůj zvláštní ráz, zprv trpké, ale milé zas!". Může něco v ČR vypadat, nebo se předvádět jedným způsobem, ale nemusí to vůbec takhle být....

The way Czech politicians are, is the way Czech weather is - shifty & unpredictable. For English readers, I am not sure you are familiar with an extract from a famous book (A Romance about Charles IV.), written by a great Czech author - Jan Neruda, in our school books for Czech language. I gave a test to the people who went to a Czech grade school (above). In the school book (for 5th graders), Charles IV. tastes Czech wine (quite unlike wine from Burgundy) & spits it out, since he thinks it's gross. The nobleman Bušek encourages him to try it again, so Charles IV. does & says : " Ah yes - it is important to introspect dear Bušek! This wine has it's own character, at first bitter, but then sweet as well!". It can be or seem one way in CZ, or even behave a certain way, but it doesn't really have to be that way...


Začala jsem den s kabátem a musím říct, že jsem litovala toho, že jsem si ji vzala..
I started out with a coat in the morning and boy was I sorry..
