I really like Czech traditions, except for 2, says Richard Savage, Briton living in Czechia

Richard Savage is an English lecturer, musician, and voice artist, who has been living in the Czech Republic for almost 20 years. 

I couldn’t resist to ask him some crucial Czech questions like:

What did he know about Czechia before moving here?

Was he afraid to move to a post-communistic country?

How does he handle black Czech humor?

What does he think about Czech traditions?

What about Jára Cimrman?

And some more. And Richard was kind to answer them all 😀

Enjoy!
