Jul 23rd 2008 10:40AM Thanks Jeff,
The part about not scratching is critical. But, it's SOOOO hard not to scratch!!
Jul 23rd 2008 10:16AM Yeah! Zizkov is the best! Honestly though, I am quite happy to do all my drinking inside.
I am also OK with not being able to "spit, piss and feed the pigeons" on the streets of Prague :-)
Jul 21st 2008 2:14PM I couldn't agree more. $4.50 or an iced latte is too much if you can get an iced espresso for $2 and add milk. I do that all the time. I'd rather tip the barista than pay $2,50 extra for milk.
Jul 21st 2008 2:11PM I think I was too shocked to respond :-)
Jul 21st 2008 2:09PM I know. I tried ordering a latte in Italy in the afternoon one time. No go. They said latte is a morning drink. I got an espresso instead. It's interesting because it Italy, it didn't bother me at all. I just took it as a cultural thing one needs to respect. In the US, the land of instant gratification and the land of plenty, the whole thing somehow feels completely fake.
Jul 21st 2008 2:04PM That's funny. I have noticed that about fast food places. It just shows you: people love rules. No matter how free we are, we'll always have the handcuffs of rules.
Jul 21st 2008 1:58PM I am trying to get my hands on some more info about this guy (apparently it's a guy who built the house himself by bringing all the wood and construction material there from the mainland). I'll see what I can do. I'd love to meet him myself.
Jul 18th 2008 3:19PM You mean to tell me you don't want to read about ambergris, the "dull gray or blackish color flammable substance produced in the digestive system of sperm whales"?? :-)
Ambergris Caye is actually named after ambergris, which washed ashore here.
But I fixed the link. Thanks.
Jul 17th 2008 7:22PM You think they were trying to kill us??? :-)
