Brno - in and aroundSun 22 Jun 2014
Spent 2 nights at Brno. Stephanie has traveled with a USA guy who now lives in Brno.
Great place to stay and Michael is a 1000+ hosting CS member, so he is naturally a generous and well traveled host.
Went to a bit of a CS Picnic in a hill top park and learned these facts
- Z in Czech scrabble scores only 2 points, not 10
- Brno has major operations for IBM and Red Hat (Linux) so there are lots of ex pats
- Czech is famous for cheap beer, but in reality life is not that much cheaper than West Europe
- Czech Republic has 60% (around) atheism
A central joke in the town of Brno is the shape of the clock sculpture that was revealed in 2013. In the shape of a giant sex toy, its become a central point of discussion
