I'm staying in Olomouc in the eastern part of the Czech Republic. It is a very laid back little city. The center is quite nice - imagine a smaller, more laid back Prague that hasn't had a face-lift for every building in the center and has a tiny fraction of the crowds. The wonderful Czech beer is still very cheep here - about 70 cents U.S.
I'm working very long hours, so no reading and no time for playing at tourist. Only time for a few beers and dinner before the only-too-short night's sleep. Oh well, it could be worse (easy to say since I'm in a hotel with high-speed internet access and air conditions - an unexpected luxury).
On Sunday it's off to the western side of the country and unknown hotel accomodations. I doubt I'll have it as good as here in Olomouc.
Anyway, I'm not much farther in my reading as before, so it'll be a couple weeks before the next review is up.
