Personal comments
English was the language of communication in most of the situations 4 me. I've been learnin and speakin it for 11 years now. There were no problems with it. As to the Czech, well, it was very easy 2 understand it - in many ways Russian and Czech are similar. The problem was to speak, but anyway, after 2 weeks I was able 2 say what I want in a restaurant or cafe of in a shop. I think if I had stayed in the country longer I would have been able 2 speak Czech after around 6-8 months.

Personal spending habits
Food was cheaper in Ostrava than in Moscow so I was eating out more often than at home, so I spent more or less the same amount of money. As to the phone, I didnt use it that much - my parents and friends were calling me. As to the housing, I didnt pay anything 4 it - it was my University. Nightlife, ok, Stodolni Street was very demanding sometimes, there were times when I spent amounts of money that I wouldnt dare 2 spend at home! I travelled a lot - I had time, at home I dont have time, so I dont travel, its obvious that I spent more than I do at home. But on the whole it turned out 2 b the same money that I usually spend in Moscow.
