I don’t want to be fat in Prague

I don’t want to be fat in Prague. Or Budapest. or Krakow. Q:  My husband is filming a new show for ABC in Eastern Europe, specifically Budapest, Krakow and Prague.

NEW YORK RATS Tourists visiting New York this summer may miss out on one of the city’s most famous sights¾Rats scurrying across the fountain in front of their $800 a night suite at the Palace Hotel. Fancy an early morning jog? No more tripping over one of the large, fat, species. That is if Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer has his way. After last years’ horrible bed bug infestation, Stringer wants to put an end to all these bugs hampering tourism,  and he’s starting by demanding the rat control budget … More…
