    Question Hey Gunut ...

    I was just curious, with a question or two about the people your meeting in the other countries that your visiting right now....

    1. How are they reacting to Saddam's ticket being punched ...?

    2. How do they feel about Americans ... ?

    Just wondering .... have a good time & be careful.

    Well not going out and conducting an interview or anything it seems the people here are kinda like "Oh...huh." Definitely not as big of a deal over here. Czech does not really have much invested in the war. It seems that people here really do not necessarily like or dislike Americans. But they do see as a way to make some bucks. They think that American= rich, so if I go with someone that speaks Czech we can get better deals then if I go up to them speaking English. I always keep quiet when it is time to get a cab because they really gouge the price up for English speakers. I am not sure how it will be in Rome. Us not knowing Italian will probably cost us more but oh well.

    It is the same way in China - they see American tv shows there sometimes, and assume ALL of America is rich. I let my wife do the talking because she can get the cheaper prices too...
