The Chodové (Choden) was a group of people in Bohemia, mainly in the surroundings of Domažlice, Tachov and Přimda. They were guards of borders between Bohemia and Bavaria, Czechia. They were direct servants of the king with significant privileges that excludes them from common inhabitants.
On a Sunday morning driving through these little villages in Czechia we passed this marketplace. On one side there was a small church, opposite the church there was this huge tree with these three Chodové woman sitting there and having their “gezellige” Sunday morning talk.
