I know this is like so common these days for a foreigner to come to Brno (with all those new companies opening branches). I got a job in an IT company (not IBM) starting 2 Jan 2007. I had been visiting Brno 3 years ago and liked it, then I applied to a job just for fun and they hired me. I couldn't say no, I wanted to try. It is a sacrifice both in terms of income and social life (my beloved one is left back here), but I think it will pack me some memories (good and bad) to tell when I'm older. I have been trying to learn Czech here for some time, but never got the motivation. So I decided that should learn in the country to really practice it in shops and with colleagues. My company should be finding accomodation for me, so I hope they'll get something not too bad, and clean. Voila ! Maybe I'll meet some people from this board later this year, so see you.
