I am Eliška, 27 years old. I studied American literature (my specialization was the period of the 1950's and 1960's) and I work as a translator and interpreter and I simply enjoy whatever I do. I also have some English and Czech for foreigners lessons. I have many hobbies - reading, music, film, going out, swimming, sleeping and many many others. To make my life happy, I have a dog whose name is Kvenda (I took him from the dog shelter) and he is a mixture of a labrador retriever and a dachshund - he is very cute and clever! I LOVE French Little Nicolas by Goscinny and Sempé. And yes, I'm totally addicted to Postcrossing (nickname Bettynka)!7
