The British Get Drunk In Prague?

No. Say it ain’t so. Well, ask the NY Times which has an interesting article on the aweful behaviour of the British in the lovely city. registration required, but all hasslefree. A couple of quotes just for fun:

PRAGUE, Aug. 30 � The party started early on Friday, when EasyJet’s 6:15 a.m. flight to Prague took off from Stansted Airport in Britain.

“We looked on the Internet and these were the flights that were available,” said a 30-ish passenger whose breakfast, three cans of Kronenborg, was lined up in front of him.

“I thought we were going to Barcelona, but apparently Prague is quite a historical and cultural city.” He snickered……

……”As a friend of mine said the other day, the British treat every day as if it were New Year’s Eve,” said Ivo Lorenc, who rents out apartments to tourists, and who once cleaned up after a party of four Britons who stayed for two nights and left 100 empty bottles behind.

Hmmm. Interesting.
