Will you be teaching english? Have you found a job there yet? Prague is a beautiful old city, it is one city I have to visit at least once in my life!
"When I think about the idea of getting involved with an American woman, I don't know if I should laugh .............. or vomit!"
"Trying to meet women in America is like trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics."
I spent last summer in Prague. Hang out around the Palladium Mall downtown, especially around lunch time, and you'll see all kinds of attractive women. Asking them if they speak English -- whether in English or Czech -- doesn't seem to be a good conversational entree; at least it wasn't for me. I'd start studying the language right away, if I had it to do over again.
I didn't have any luck with the women, and thought I detected some anti-western bias, but other ex-pats who married Czech women told me it shouldn't be a problem, and that the women are very receptive to male admirers. So, I wouldn't let a couple of rebuffs discourage you, as they did me. Czechs can be a bit gruff, and the women can seem ruder than American chicks, who will usually be polite for about ten seconds. Persistence should pay off, though.
Letna Park beer garden, on a bluff of the river overlooking the city, is a sublime environment with cheap beer. Few better places to get mellow, as the old town starts to shimmer in the twilight.
Jama, one block off Wenceslas Square, has a good burger and a large expat clientele.
They don't check your ticket very often on the public transportation -- only twice all summer for me.
Nice complex of ball diamonds there if you ever want to watch some baseball or softball.
And be sure to take a leak in the men's room off the upstairs food court at the Palladium mall. On the walls are a dozen or so almost life size pictures of attractive young women with their gazes focused at belt level, registering different reactions, from delighted astonishment to ridicule. One has a tape measure out, another a microscope. It's very funny, and captures what I wish I had been able to get more of a toehold on -- the Czech combination of black humor and easy sexuality.
Prague could be fantastic if you figure out how to get it right.
