My time here in Firenze has taught me that Americans (I'll include myself) have no sense of time/history and live in the present. The entrapment of a 24/7 news cycle is starting to pervade here but there is still a strong sense of tradition and keeping history in perspective. Mention Mussolini here and you'll get glaring looks and reminders that most Italians opposed him and it was the Italian populace that eventually executed him and hung his body upside down for the world to witness.

Speaking of Prague, I went there last month with a group of ex-pats. One of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Here's a pic of a Segway tour we did. I'm 2nd from left missing a glove after a stop for some Schnapps.
