I moved to the big city lights of Prague quite recently - in July 2007. Before, I had been living in Scotland, roaming in the gloaming by the bonny banks of the Forth. So Prague, with its hustle and bustle and trams and people, marked quite a departure from my previous home. And, with the exception of one reconnaissance mission back to Scotland, to stock up on hats and gloves for the continental winters to come, I have thrown myself into central European life pretty wholeheartedly. Radio Prague has been a great way to integrate into Czech society; I have found myself beekeeping in Bohemia and questioning politicians in Parliament on consequent days.
