The Czech Republic’s 1st direct presidential elections
On Friday night, the first night of the two-day Czech presidential election, we gathered with my neighbors at the local bowling alley. Ostensibly, we were there to celebrate Jan’s 40th birthday. After two rounds of light-hearted bowling, we sat at a long table, couple by couple, enjoying a few Pilsners and slices of birthday cake. However, conversation quickly turned to the ongoing two-day election and soon the neighborhood was involved in a rowdy decision of the pros and cons of the various top candidates.
