International Children's Day, which the kids had off from school because our principal rocks, and the faculty and staff celebrated by going to a chata outside of the city and having a gulaš party, which is the most Slovak thing that we could have done. The gulaš vat, as you can see, is a rather ingenious, self-contained and free standing piece, with a firebox at the bottom, and then a vat that sits inside and over the fire like a double boiler, plus it's own little chimney. We had enough gulaš so that all of us (around 30 people) had 2 servings of it, plus then 20 sisters at dinner that night, and then as a snack Tuesday at school. Excellent.
