My dear friend
Here I am in Prague for 7 months already... You remember my hesitation last year about choosing the right place to go, and also my discouragement because of the erasmus paperwork. But this is far from now, and I do not regret my choice for one second. I'm starting to feel like home, (it is about time), and I often amuse myself thinking about the clichés we had about this country.

I met my girlfriend in Lima, Peru, when I was attending to a presentation about exchange opportunities abroad in my college. I still remember it as it was yesterday.

When I arrived in Prague for a week’s holiday back in the summer of 1993, it was grey, grey and cheap. From that first week in the Thirsty Dog to following years in the Chapeau Rouge, through a name change to the Chateau Bar and back again, Prague has continued in many ways to feel like a holiday.
