Things I've Learned So Far in Prague:
-Sujan needs much more sleep time in the Czech Republic than she does in the States.
-200,000 people were buried in the the small Jewish cemetary in the ghetto because Jews weren't allowed to have more space.
-If you walk around the perimeter of the Jewish cemetary, you might notice that people live in the apartments that surround it.
-If you walk around the perimeter of the cemetary and look in one of the apartments, you might find a naked woman walking in her kitchen and share a chuckle with another tourist who noticed the same thing.
-Weather in Prague in July is quite beautiful. Sunny, high 70's, low humidity during the day. 50's and crisp at night. The San Diego of Europe without the beach?
-Everytime your wife orders water with no gas, you suppress the urge to laugh.
- The police don't really seem to be in a hurry to do anything. Yesterday, a man cried out to an officer that a crime had just been committed and that the officer should hurry to catch the criminal. By the time the officer had leisurely sauntered over to the man, the criminal was long gone.
- Blind men working in the bus station information booth are very rude to people who ask for information.
- Wenceslas Square is not really a square, but rather a long boulevard.
-At night, Wenceslas Square is full of drug dealers, prostitutes, and people who work for the many strip clubs trying to get people to visit their establishments.
-One of the clubs, "Darling Cabaret" is located right next to our hotel. They have a huge white limo parked on the corner of the street advertising their wares. "Up to 200 Go-Go Girls!" Today, I saw a man pose his 7 year old daughter in front of the limo for a picture. Classy!
Last night, we noticed that the limo goes around cruising in the neighborhood to pick up possible customers to bring them back to the "cabaret."
- The preferred come-on of local prostitutes is "Sucky, Sucky?"
_There are many shops selling ridiculous T-shirts. Who wants a "Czech This Out" shirt?
