“Yes, honey, I understand that the Czech Republic is quite beautiful,” Gracie admitted to George, “but of all the places we could have visited with our lottery winnings, why come here to Karlovy Vary?!”
“Think of all the history that’s here,” her husband reminded her. Austria Hungary’s Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie were from here. He’s the only assassinated public figure with both a band and a beer named after him.
“Besides that,” he continued, “Franz Kafka’s from here too. You know how many times I’ve read everything of his, from “The Metamorphosis” to “Amerika.”
“And best of all,” she intoned happily. “Blanche and Harry will be insanely jealous when they see our videos of the Hotel Imperial.”
“With all the beauty this place has going for it,” he sighed, “is that all you can think of?”
“Hey, honey pie, I’m a nudge. Get over it,” she bragged triumphantly.
This is my very first attempt at a story for Pegman. Visit the Czech Republic’s Karlovy Vary and write a story based upon one of the photographs. Keep it within 150 words.
