so, the interview went pretty well. i have a third - and hopefully final - one on monday. the pay is enough to live on, and with my stipend, rent is covered as well. would be great not to touch my bank accounts or credit cards while i am here. i really have to study this weekend....went out of town last weekend and really fell behind, especially in czech.
bought some new shoes today since i figure there may be times when i need something a little dressier than my tennis shoes. ;) on the way home i went to this market that i like. it is sort of a flea market with clothes, shoes, backpacks and other lagniappe, but has a great fruit and veggie vendor at the end. i am just settling down with a huge salad and have some snap peas, mushrooms and tofu on the hotplate. :)
and, in a moment of desperation (read: to lazy to go downstairs to the vending machine), i discovered the tap water actually tastes much better than the bottled water. i would know by now if it isn't safe.
one of my professors gave a hand-out today, with a map and a few paragraphs of text. the text is in Czech. his words: 10 million people speak Czech, I am sure you all can understand it.

uh huh......

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
