awww.... watched "Pride and Prejudice" last night for the first time (Andrew and Bruce are in England so every night is jammed packed with movies we otherwise would have to fight to watch on the big screen). That has to be one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. What a girl wouldn't do to have a Mr. Darcy look at her that way!

Today is my last Thursday in Prague...I'm in a sentimental mood today. I plan to walk all over the city for the next week and play tourist like when I first arrived almost three years ago. I say this being completely serious...Prague is the most beautiful and most charming city in Europe. There is one problem...the more it is discovered (and its being found out quickly by many) the more it's changing to adapt to western beliefs of what beauty should look like. Its losing its raw edge; imperfect buildings are being renovated or torn down completely and replaced with shiny glass replacements,small corner stores and veg stands are closing to make way for malls and large hypermarkets. My fear is that the culture will start to conform to the cookie cutter image of what a proper EU country looks like and lose the very thing that makes Czech stand out aside from its gorgeous architecture, cobblestone streets and hidden alley ways. advice to all of you that I know and love is to do this; don;t make excuses...come to Prague and experience it before its too late as it is;pre-EU, pre-over western influence. Ok, off to be a happy tourist.
