Another Fulbright Meeting
Last night was a pre Christmas / end-of-the-year meeting/dinner with the Fulbright group. It was more personable than the embassy's silver-trayed and white-gloved waiters. At the 'meeting' we all talked about our experiences in the Czech Republic. What went well? What didn't? Those of us not located in Prague had a chance to get reacquainted with each other and the Praguers and even to meet some new Fulbright grantees who will be joining us for the winter. Afterward we had dinner at 'Hot Wings', a restaurant of unlikely name so perhaps I'm misremembering. Anyway, I was afraid that they would only have chicken wings. We, however, had a multi-course dinner served at a leisurely pace (to facilitate 'networking'). The food included a large "Capri" salad (tomatos and mozzrella), chicken breast stuffed with mushrooms (with lots of potatos on the side), a dessert course of "Tiramisu" (though it was more like small dessert things), and a chaser of Becherovka. So my weekend in Prague continues. I hope to return on the 'Brno Dragon' express. More about that when I get back.
