Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

DoDo, I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings... I truly had no idea you work for the railway! :) But speaking about dull railroad stations, ask Migeru about the lovely station of Křemže in southern Bohemia... the only thing you can do there while waiting is to practice its pronunciation  (which is a bit less complicated than the Welsh disaster, but still will take a while to master ;).

I know you and your family have nothing but contempt for the little two-car train running between Bud'ejovice and Krumlov but, again, next time we go I will insist on taking the train instead of the bus and taking pictures of every station along the way. Even of the one at Křemže (and we'll record an MP3 --- sorry, and MP2 because of software patent issues) of the proper pronounciation of it for everyone here.

I can pronounce the Welsh one, but I doubt that's going to earn me any Brownie points.

If you post the MP3 I'm sure it will.
