Eating at the Grand Hotel Europe can be entertaining also. During my lunch one day, I watched two European Businessmen "wine and dine" two prostitutes in the cafe. Don't ask me how I knew they were prostitutes. After you've spent some time in Eastern Europe, you just know. I felt bad for the girls; the men were crass mannerless pigs.
