The Empire Never Ended

Yes, something of a blurt of writing in recent days! Apologies, perhaps for length.

The Czech Republic (I keep on wanting to add -oslovakia...) has the possible advantage (or not) that you can more readily vanish into the background. It doesn't matter how much Uniqlo or whatever I might wear, still evidently not from these parts... I could more or less vanish when I lived in Poland, unless until very up close and even then I somehow managed to speak Polish (badly!) with a heavy Russian accent which threw perceptions a bit.

I've been to a few expat options here in Osaka. Some are just more international and hence attract a wider group, others are quite definitely made for foreigners. This generally means they feel very American in a frat-boy (not that I quite understand that term) abroad sort of way. If there was a watering hole for Czech expats, I'd be down there in a flash!
