PRAGUE?
« on: January 21, 2004, 07:10:20 PM »
I recall reading that a certain member of this forum lives in Prague. If I'm correct on this, I'd like to ask this person a few questions about the city as I'm planning to visit this March.
Thanks!

I thought you told me to stop calling your wife!  ;)

You should go this March instead!

Prague!

I have a buddy who taught English there. I heard it is fabulous and that the beer there is especially good.

I'll have to go sometime and Czech it out!

That would be me. Contact me at <<nebduke@hotmail.com>>. I am teaching here, hopefully until the end of June. It's good and if getting work in Toronto doesn't work out (but I hope it will), I'll try to come back.

My favorite city in the world.....(sigh)

I'd rather have Vienna-- but then the last time I was in Prague was in the Bad Old Days.

I enjoyed Amsterdam when I was there.

Moscow was fun, but so was the less-frequented-by-tourists Volgograd.

Volgograd has some nice beaches on the Volga, which is a pleasant swim in the summer and produces some tasty fish and crayfish.

Volgograd is also the former Stalingrad. The WWII panorama is worth seeing, as is the war museum and the various battlefield exhibits around.

The Mamaev Kurgan - featuring the gigantic statue of Mat Rodina - is awesome.

Summer weather there is hot but not too humid. Can't recommend going there in the winter, however, unless you like dressing in lots of layers.
