      That is why we are hiring an interpreter. I will definitely not order wine
      and soup. $350?? for wine and soup? Wow. My family normally hires Petr to
      drive them around which is about $100 a day. It will be costly but I would
      just spend the money on something else here. If I'm going, I'm going all
      out. I will keep my ears and eyes open for the Beran family. Where do they
