„I’ve been living here for twenty-four years and I am the only one left of our former group of grannies. So now I am glad that I have her, we know each other for around two years. We are telling ourselves stories from our youth.“ What surprised you the most about her life? „She told me that she was serving at a teacher’s house back at her village since she was fourteen. She was taking care of three children, laundry and cookery – fourteen year old girl, such a lassie!“

What’s your greatest struggle right now? „I am struggling with myself, with my laziness.“ When was the last time you overcame it? „Last night, I was studying for today’s exam. And I got an A. Instead of going out on Friday night, I sat down and studied – I think that‘s good. I returned to studying after three years at work. I didn’t know if I manage. Now it seems that I will.“

„We were together for fifty-one years. It’s been eleven years since he passed away. It was my great-granddaughter who helped me get over it back then. I was constantly riding her in the stroller around here and we were going to the cemetery. I used to sing to her and teach her about the figures at traffic lights – the green one, the red one, when to cross the street. She used to repeat ‚gleen man’, ‚led man’. She’s a smart girl, I like her very much...

„We’ve been coming here for years. There’s a good air. Today, there is three of us, sometimes there is ten of us. We’re all widows, retired, knowing each other for years. We live on different places – I come from the southern part of Prague, this lady here is from Strašnice, some come from Holešovice, Bílá Hora… Here we can have a laugh, chat, talk about everything, feed peacocks and jackdaws. Where else should we talk?...

„I would want to return to India, I’ve lived there for a year already. Prague is very quiet, peaceful and safe, I have a feeling that I don’t appreciate life here as much as I did there. I miss the danger, the adrenaline. Sometimes I woke up there and said to myself that I am lucky to by still alive. It’s such a beautiful feeling.“

„My husband died in a car accident when I was forty years old. We had our lives in front of us. For some time after he died I had a feeling that my life had stopped. I stopped to talk, I was moving slowly, slowly pulling myself together. My husband used to be a managing director of a big company, I had been living only for the family until then. After a while I realized that there is no one for me to rely on anymore, that I need to take care of myself.“  „I knew that I shouldn’t be closed…
