Went to Prague last weekend on a company trip. Fabulous city, cheap and decent beer. Culinary side of things wasn't that impressive, although it was better than Lisbon where we were last year. Main point of excitement on the trip was four people of our group getting their luggage stolen two hours or so after our plane landed, when they left them in our minibus and the driver wasn't guarding it.

We went to see Faust in a black light theatre. It's apparently a local speciality. As a co-worker put it, it was slightly worse than a piece of shit. We were all in agreement. Never, never again.

Also went to see the Czech - Germany world cup hockey match, which wasn't anything to write home about (not that it prevents me from blogging about it.) The result was clear from the start, even though the Czech team played a lazy game. They did win 8-2 or something like that, going on pure routine. It was the second time in my life I've been to a hockey game, and the commercialism was something painful, with multiple ad breaks in the middle of the periods. The tackiest moment of all was someone proposing (and apparently getting yes for an answer) to his girlfriend in the middle of the game, with the whole arena watching it on the screen. I thought that happened only on Friends.
