[ Sept.2013 ] We went to Prague with our Italian friends.
It was the second time for me to visit there.
It was only a few years after their regime changed and people could not afford to dress up.
I remember that while the town was very beautiful, people looked rather dull.
So I was looking forward to seeing how they have changed during the 19 years.
And I was surprised to see that Prague has become a massive tourist city.
The streets were full of tourists from all over the world.
They were too many for me to see who were the local people.
In the end I could not see any ordinary Czech people who were not working in tourism.
Probably as a country, they take the income from tourism very seriously.
The services for tourists were well done.
Not only hotel people, but shop assistants in a small souvenir shops understood Italian.
The town did not change and it was beautiful as ever.
We were lucky with the weather, too.
