Very interesting :) I am Czech, lot of things is tipical :))), but a lot of these things is special for Prague (pay for WC, salt, pepper, water in restaurant). You are right with McDonald - I was allways surprised, if somebody said, that it is very cheap, for pure people...The toilet paper you find in public places is one of the cheapest, you now, but we normally have a good one as well. Dogs MUST have lashes, but in the past it was not a rule and lot of people do that like in the past :) In Brno I know convenience stores with over the counter meds. But your are right, it is not typical...High Speed Washer/dryers - in public loundry there are not very modern machines :) But we normally have high speed program, really (about 45 min). And take the meal home is really normal here, I do it every time, because I never can eat everythig from my plate :) What is very interesting to me is your point about suburbs. I was allways wondering, where the people in US movies live :) Beautifull houses, but not village...In CZ we have towns, cities and villages. On the end of city is usually housing development (prefab). So you can live in centre, , on ond the edge or in village near city. I would like to live in suburb like you have in US (in films :), I have never been there). And the KETCHUP!!! :) You have different one?? How taste it? Wheres different? I really woul love to recognise your country, it seems so interesting :) I am sorry for my english and hope you understand :) Are you still in CZ? Have a nice time, Eva
