Nibble Nibble Here, Nibble Nibble There

emailFacebookTwitterPinterestTumblrStumbleUponDiggRedditBufferLinkedinA strange local phenomenon: Czech people eat in public all the time. Not just normal eat-on-the-go types of foods like gyros, ice cream or pizza. You see them at tram and metro stops nibbling on peices of bread. Not French bread, or croissants, or even decent healthy-looking bread. It’s always the cheap, nasty Czech bread… Continue reading Nibble Nibble Here, Nibble Nibble There
