Christmas has been magical so far. I started the day by walking around Bratislava castle, an old Communist monument that overlooks the city, and the cobbled stone streets of the old town. We just finished a traditional Slovakian Christmas lunch filled with roasted duck, red cabbage and dumplings. Needless to say that I´m stuffed. It´s 8:20 AM in New York where my family and friends will just be starting their Christmas. I wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday. Merry Christmas!!
