One of the highlights of this trip was the chance to meet fellow Python and GIS programmer, and blogger, Jáchym Čepický.
I'm not sure how many readers of Planet OSGeo understand Czech and know that Jáchym went through a scary episode in life this past summer. He gave me a sobering recap and then we had some less sobering toasts to his good health at Pivovarský klub. In a city served almost exclusively by single-beer pubs, Pivovarský klub is an oasis for the beer enthusiast. I had several beers from the tap that I never saw anywhere else -- beers far more fresh and flavorful than the ubiquitous Gambrinus.
