A Leisurely Dupo Stroll

Mixed in with our voracious consumption of Missouri state parks, we have been taking a lot of strolls in various small towns surrounding St. Louis.

This time we took a stroll around Dupo, Illinois. Lydia's grandma used to live here and Lydia spent a lot of her childhood at her house.

I have all of my Italian citizenship application documents in order and am now just waiting for my appointment at the consulate in Chicago. In the meantime, I've been investigating any possible citizenship opportunities in countries that some of my other ancestors hail from. I spoke a bit with Sharon Valasek, the Honorary Consul of the Czech Republic over in Kansas City. She was super helpful, but some of the documentation I would need to pull this off has been more difficult to come by on my Czech side.
