Heh heh. I didn't know that. And I'm in Prague. I wonder if the fake tourists are getting paid - I obviously have some spare time to comment! I'd just dress in my American second-cousin's sports jersey and blue jeans, and get paid to go around saying "Oh, hello taxi driver I want to go to Orloj*"


*and I'd pronounce it [ORR-Lojh] rather than [orr-loyy]!
